Happy Aloha Friday!
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays let’s take it easy on posting, too. Ask a simple question…nothing that requires a lengthy response. It’s a great way to make new blogging friends!
Since I’m in the throes of trying to simplify things and getting rid of excess, my question for you this week is:
Are you a packrat or a neat-nick?
I know, that’s sort of an oddball question, but consider the source. I’m a neat-nick pack-rat. I inherited the pack-rat gene from my dad, who inherited it from his dad, and so on. But I also like to have some semblance of order and things ‘in their place’.
I also have a tendency to keep stuff just in case it may come in handy some day. Since there will be a point in the future that we’ll be moving out of this house into a different one (and definitely to a different state), I figured I better get started now, because it may take a few years to whittle down the excess and get organized for a future move.
Princess Nagger has inherited the pack-rat gene from me, so if I’m whittling down anything that belongs to her (baby toys she hasn’t played with in years, clothes she’s outgrown, etc.) I have to make sure I do it when she’s not around, or her highness will protest greatly. Do you have a routine where you reduce and reorganize – either your own collection of ‘stuff’ or your kids?
