a simple guideline

If you have been watching me on YouTube you will know that my home is somewhat under construction.

now that is a laugh, it is COMPLETELY under construction.

I must admit I have dust and bits of paint where I never dreamed possible!!


There is one thing I know for sure. 

Living with this mess is possible because I put things back in their place [ whenever I can ].


This is one of the guidelines to living a Simple Life:

A place for everything and everything in its place.

[ I bet if you close your eyes you can hear those words being told to you as a child. RIght?]

Practicing this strategy has kept this process of renovation manageable. It makes living a Simple Life  achievable.

I have lived this way for many years and found that this concept, this simple action

  • keeps my head clear
  • keeps me calm
  • keeps the overwhelm at bay

It helps me make decisions easier.


I can find “my stuff” easier. There is no need to search for:

  • the holiday wrapping paper
  • the screw driver when it is needed
  • the charger for my phone.

Putting things back, in the place that you have decided they belong, is such an easy practice. It keeps life simple, and hey isn’t this what we all are looking to achieve—> A Simple Life:)
