I've mentioned this before but another reason I can't wait to get into my smaller house is less places for clutter to accumulate and hide. My current house looks very minimalistic right now with nothing but essentials on flat surfaces. For example, on my ample counters space in my kitchen I only have a microwave, toaster, knife block, and fruit bowl. My entire living room consists of a couch, two end table (one has two remotes on it the other is empty), and a dresser that's used as an entertainment center and has a tv, dvd player, and Scentsy-like-wax-melter on top).
But even though none of the closets/storage spaces are remotely full, they have things that we really should get rid of (like 2 pairs of snow boots I have no desire to keep in the mudroom closet) and I can't seem to muster up the motivation to do it because I don't see it and it's not hindering me in any way. This weekend my goal is to go through some of these places and put anything we're not keeping in the (otherwise empty) bedroom we're storing the this-is-not-moving-with-us stuff. Maybe even take some of it to Goodwill, Half Price Books, and HFH Restore if I'm feeling really good :)
