Do you have DVD CLUTTER?


Now, we do like movies in our home. We love our Disney Princesses and Super Heroes. My daughter truly believes that she is both a princess and a super hero. I love that about her. I want to be a Power Ranger – legit! I am waiting to get recruited any day now…

But DVD clutter has been an issue in my home. A certain someone in my home does not believe in putting the DVD back in its case. Often the DVD does not make it back to a case at all. THIS DRIVES ME INSANE! I was looking around last week and noticing the stacks of DVD cases and DVDs out of their home laying around. Why is this a source of clutter? I feel like it does not need to be.

I threw out all of the DVDs in my home…

No, I didn’t. I really felt like it though. What did I do instead to prevent this simple cause to CLUTTER?

I purchased a DVD portfolio to contain all of the DVDs and games we have. You do not know how excited I was for this. It was like Christmas, but organizing makes me happy because it makes my life a little less stressful. Yay to a Dopamine release – this causes us to have those happy feelings!

Now, I normally inclined to keep my DVD collection alphabetized. That makes me happy, but it is just not realistic for my family. Take a deep breath. That is okay.

BUT I could not help myself but to divide this little binder a little bit. Organization makes me happy remember. So,  I separated the binder by Children/Family Movies, Mommy and Daddy Movies, and X-Box/Play Station Games.

I then recycled all of the DVD/Games cases! Two garbage bags later…

Momma was a little happier. Bella loved being involved in the process and looking at all of the movie options. She has really enjoyed picking out her movies for movie nights! I thought I would miss the cases, but I am relieved they are gone.

Take action on something that is weighing you down! Life is too short to be weighed down by things that do not matter. Do yourself a favor this week and do something for you! That may be taking a walk or it may be de-cluttering a location in your home. If you need a little motivation, please give me a call. I can help guide you on how to get organized and feel those happy feelings!

I am a hardworking, full-time mother of two beautiful children under the age of two. When I became a mother for the first time almost 2 years ago, I changed greatly. Being a mother is one of the most amazing roles and I am grateful for the blessing. It is also one of the most challenging jobs, whether you are a working mother or a stay at home mom. Working through postpartum depression, I determined that the challenges of motherhood and life seemed to be overshadowing the many joys of motherhood. With much research, I found that the same words continued to pop up: intentional, purposeful, and mindful. This led me to start thinking about how I can be more intentional, purposeful, and mindful in all aspects in my life. The thought is really profound and overwhelming because it could be a major change for my family. I believe in this change and I am jumping into this journey with the great support of my husband. Here I am blogging about my journey. Please join me!
