Space, stuff and new cupboards

I live in a house with few cupboards. And, I must confess to being a somewhat messy person. I don't want to be, I am not proud of it, and I am trying. Somehow, I find it harder than others in the household to put things back where they came from. Does 'I am a creative' cut it? You know, I get distracted by a wave of creative genius (I wish)- drop everything and start 'the new thing'. I don't think so, but it is something I have to work with!
So, not much storage space has led to clutter (yes, I hear you, I could have chucked it out!).
On Friday we got our new wall (yes, whole wall) of cupboards installed. Amazing, they look lovely (just for the mere fact of being cupboard!). But, I have a rule. If I have kept it for 'one day' and I can't see that day coming any time soon. It's out. To stay and gain a place in lovely cupboard, it needs to get used or be beautiful and make me smile. No photos tonight but I will plan to show you the 'in' and the 'out' piles. The out pile is getting big- hooray- I feel a sense of order and it's quite calming, I'd recommend it!
Phew, I didn't even get a rant up abut how much stuff we really 'need'!
Sewing machine the lovely, is getting serviced tomorrow so she will be out of action for a while. Not too long I hope, there's work to be done.


  1. I really do believe that one of the elements needed to attain happiness is storage... Now there's something the Dalai Lama didn't tell you!

  2. Where did you put your wall of cupboards?

  3. Ahhhhhhh... storage! I am only just begining to realise the joys of storage, before now I thought I just should resign myself to the fact that I am indeed "creative" and hella messy as a result.

    Are new house has a grand total of one closet... I see issues ahead!

    Can't wait to see your new wall!

  4. I want to see your new cupboards. I love storage solutions!

  5. ok, I hear you loud and clear, this so applies to me! Sounds like a great plan- can't wait to see who made the cut ;)
