The title of this post says it all. If you have ever moved, you recognize these three elements. The photo above is of a box set up by a professional organizer. I simply laughed when I saw it. Does she really think I will have time to look at this?
I decided to call in Linda, the organizer, for some added help. I have worked with her before, when I felt overwhelmed with "papers".
The bad and ugly side of moving is the utter chaos that comes from trying to downsize. I have now been sifting through my life long collecting for about 6 weeks.
The items that made the cut, have been transferred to the new house.
After working a day with Linda, this is what I have....lots of sticky notes and some well-organized files.
And plastic containers just waiting for a new file cabinet.
Through-out this process, I need to remember, to be able to move to the larger circle of life, I must step out of my comfort zone...
