In Asian cultures, celebrating the new year includes getting organized and clearing out the clutter. In this multi-culti home we celebrate several new years, and each is a new opportunity to simplify our lives. I’m a firm believer in clear house/clear mind.
So last week I finally dealt with all the baby stuff. Yes, the “factory is closed” but I’ve been hanging on to much of it till my best friend had her baby. Guess what? She had her baby! This crap is hers now!
Unfortunately, unloading it on her wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.
She couldn’t take it.
She doesn’t have a place to store it. Her storage unit is full. But I don’t have room either. My closets and garage are overflowing with the things that occupy older, school-aged children.
Lemme tell you- my baby stuff is gooooood baby stuff. It’s the kind of stuff you don’t want to donate or sell. Stuff you want to “keep in the family.” An Oeuf crib. Charming wooden toys. Favorite articles of clothing that have softened just right. And shoes. Shoes worn a day and a half by fast growing girls.
When the stuff became too much for me, I got… CLUTTER.
Clutter is a storage company. No, it’s more than that. Clutter is a giant offsite closet that comes with your own personal assistant. They help you pack your stuff and take it away. And when you want it back, you just tell them which items you want and they bring them to you. You never have to visit a storage unit. You never have to deal with digging stuff out and putting it all back together like a giant 3D puzzle.
It’s very Hollywood. In a good way.
And guess what? I’m giving away 6 months of free storage with Clutter worth $450! In addition, you get an hour of free help to sort and pack your stuff!
Start the new year off right— get rid of the Clutter!
