No more clutter

I am on a mission. A mission to get rid of all the clutter. At work, at home, basically everywhere. If I don’t need it, I get rid of it. Done and dusted. Live simply.

I have started sorting out all our wardrobes, one by one they are being unpacked and repacked. Anything we don’t need goes into the trash or the donate box. In the process, I have realised that I have a serious lack of storage boxes. I’ve been hunting for boxes that can be used for documents, my vast collection of crafty stuff and just any loose bits that tend to float around.

So, I eventually tracked down the perfect storage boxes. Simple, neat and user friendly. Exactly what I need! AND did I mention they come in a few different sizes! I’m totally obsessed. I found them on the Mr Price website. You will find them here.

They are actually gift boxes, but hey, they work and I love the fun pattern. Did I mention they are stackable too. Best storage boxes EVER! Imagine a black label with white text on the front of each box. Whoop! Whoop! The designer in me is doing a happy dance. I never thought organising could be so much fun. Who knew?!

Small changes make a difference

Every week I try to update something around the house. No matter how big or small the change is, it feels like I’m making progress. Also, change is good. Even moving a potted plant from one room to another can make a space feel different.

Last week I decided to spruce up the wall in our bathroom. It’s the wall right opposite the toilet. So if you’re sitting on the throne, this is the wall that you stare right into. Here is the before and after.

Excuse the ugly blue tiles. Yuck. A bathroom reno is definitely on our list!

The big family sign on the “after” wall is one of our Creative Living decor products. It fits beautifully in the space and adds some dimension to the wall. The other items are just things that I had around the house. The plan is to replace the two small dark box frames with something a little lighter. They are way too heavy for the space. I also need a little grey heart to fill the small gap under the family sign. I make cute moulded cement hearts that would fill the space perfectly.

All in all, it was a great way to update the bathroom. A small change can go a long way.
