Do you know what makes me uncomfortable? Hearing or reading these words:
Organize. Declutter. Domestic duty. *cringe*
I don't think I could call myself a good homemaker with my house in perpetual chaos. I feel like I am failing in this aspect of being a wife and mom. What is ironic is that I finished Interior Design from a good university, but if you walk into our house, you wouldn't think that an interior designer lives here. Awful, isn't it?
So, why am I not organizing is a good question. I could give a number of excuses like:
- The children are still too little.
- Storage solutions are expensive.
- Our home is not permanent.
- The stuff always reappear after clearing them away, it never ends!
- Blah, blah, blah!
Yes, they are all excuses. I really should start somewhere. And, I should be ruthless. I don't know why, but I find it very hard to part with things especially if they were gifts. I'm sentimental to a fault.
Reading about other moms' organizational skills should inspire me to make our house neat and pretty.
But, winning Howard Storage World + Dainty Mom's Wow Your Wardrobe Contest should kick me from behind and jump-start organizing ASAP!
I deserve to win a Php10,000 wardrobe showcase from Howards Storage World because I want to stop making excuses, start decluttering our home and be a good example of orderliness & cleanliness to my children. I'd like to maximize our very limited space and make our house a beautiful home.
