MORE vs less: Sort Items Into Project Piles

Day 11 – Instead of writing a paper to-do list, I am sorting my items into project piles.

Last month I made nine art kits for my oldest granddaughter, Sofia. I gathered all the needed supplies and instructions for each creative project. Then I put these items into large, separate, ziplock bags: one project to a bag. Now when Sofia is ready to get artsy, all she had to do is grab a bag and start.

Most of my clutter is craft related. I have a hard time getting rid of any of it because I have plans for each item. Today I was going to write-up a list of all the projects I wanted to do according to the pile on my crafting table. But making such a list seemed overwhelming. And then I remembered about the art kits!

So I spent 31 minutes sorting the items into project piles and then into large, separate, ziplock bags, one project per bag.  I am not done sorting, but I think I have come upon a GREAT solution for me. Now when I want to do something crafty, I can grab a see through bag and start. I can even grab a bag to take someplace else since all the supplies are in there. I have my own art kits.

Your Turn . . . Do you think this idea would work for you? I am excited to try this out.

Day 11 –  31 Minutes of Decluttering = Started sorting the pile on my crafting table into separate art kits.
