Do you ever feel that you just don't like the way your office/home is set up and want to change it? Well that's how I felt so I rearranged my home office space and front room. I think I go through this phase at least four times a year, and I would also do the same in my classroom. Sometimes I switch things back after testing them out for a month or so, or I make modifications to my new arrangement.
I think that the term "spring cleaning" was thought up by a person that just wanted to switch things up. I wonder how many people feel and do what I do, and how many use the same set up every time. I moved around growing up, and I always wondered what it would be like for someone to live in the same house since they were born. I think I would be moving stuff around my house like crazy. (Please post a comment if this applies to you)
During my 'spring cleaning' phase I also get rid of everything I don't use on a consistent basis (with the exception of holiday decorations or fancy dresses). I know there are some clothes in my closet that I refuse to wear, so I get rid of them. This applies to everything in my possession. My husband does this as well, but not to the drastic extent that I do. So he fussed at me a few time to keep some things, but I just feel that if you don't use it then it's a waste of space and one more thing you have to clean and keep up with. I wouldn't say I'm a minimalist, but gosh darn close. Anyone else feel this way?
