August 2019 Monthly Recap and Organizing Resources
Hey friends! I’m sad that August is over and the craziness of September is almost here. Now don’t get me wrong I like routines but I also don’t love being busy. So it’s always hard to find that balance of how much is too much. Especially with school sports and other activities that require me as a driver. However I also know that I only have one kid left at home and I’ve only got him for the next 4 years. I imagine those four years will go by just as quickly as this past summer did.
My biggest organizing project in August was going through my closet and doing my seasonal purge. SIXTY pieces of clothing left my house and my closet can breath again. Gosh it feels so good! Check out this purge pile, whoot! Want to see the rules I follow (with free printable!) go to this post.
