I love to look at my organized kitchen shelves , as I said there is pleasure and satisfaction in completion of a job..
Last couple of weeks have been very busy with carpentry going on .. So
So there has been a little lax in my organizing schedule and plan. As you know I have decided that this year I am going to organize my home step by step.
There is a lot of inspiration on the net and I see many bloggers doing the same, but here in India it’s very different from the other western countries as here we have tiny houses and most of us stay in apartments. Needs are the same but due to lack of space organizing different areas becomes a challenge. It takes very little time for things to be in a mess again because we have to arrange things in tight spaces and so things tend to entangle and mess up soon enough.
But still I am trying to be as organized by discarding stuff and keeping only those things that I am sure I will be using in near future.
Kitchen is almost organized.. I have made a small kitchen cabinet which has helped me organize my kitchen stuff like I could bring in some crockery which I used to store in my living room cabinets.
Cleaned up three shelves of napkins, towels, tissues and bags which took up most of my morning.
Its 6.30 in the evening and I plan to finish off for the day and go for my evening walk.. I am a little tired as I have not got time to take a break or nap in the afternoon.
But there is lots of satisfaction when you complete something that has been long pending.
Have any of you been organizing and cleaning in this New Year?
Please share your tips with all of us.
I have been reading a lot of home organization articles lately where ladies around US , some in the UK are taking up challenges to improve, de-clutter or arrange their homes.
These posts are real Inspiration and you feel like being a part of these event , I love to see the link ups of various bloggers who take part in the challenge and share their experiences with us. I would love to be a part of their event too and this made me think how different organization in India is from organization in other western countries.
1. We have less space to organize.
2. Pollution levels are very high and so there are lots and lots of dust.
3.We can afford to buy many thing but due to lac of space those things become messy and we cannot organize or arrange them in the way it is done in other countries.
Organization deals with various rooms , normally in Mumbai where I stay we have very small houses Just big enough to have our daily required items .Hence we normally do not have dining room our dining table is kept in our living room.
Our bedrooms do not have big huge closets just wardrobes which we get done .our bathrooms are tiny and so are our kitchens .. Pantry being a small cupboard for keeping the extra stuff.
despite of all this I am going to organize and clean my home.In my way with my schedule according to our requirement
If there are other ladies who have read this ,, can just for the list for the organizing and the schedule you too can join in and we all can have fun by sharing our ideas with each other.
