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!
