Organization Is Self-Care
The other day I sent Augusta a photo of my organized pantry when I was all finished. I was pretty proud of myself. I just ordered airtight food containers. They are clear containers that came with chalk board stickers so you can label your foods neatly, while also helping keep your food fresh. I wanted to eliminate the boxes that held my food (like pasta boxes for example) to declutter my shelves. She texted back "organization is self-care." And it really is. Self-care is so much more face masking, all though that is still very important. It helps us decompress while preparing for the week ahead. A clean organized apartment helps us feel accomplished knowing we have our apartments, therefore our lives in order.
Beyond organizing your pantry, there are several ways storage can benefit you! You can start with your kitchen or branch out to closet storage for starters. There are really no limits when it comes to getting things in order. It's a little early for spring cleaning, but why not get a jumpstart?
One of our favorite past times is going to one of the many Container Store locations in New York. The last time I went I was getting storage cubes to tidy up my closet. Augusta was looking for cute hanging folder units to organize her mail, loose documents, and magazines. Even finding the proper place for minor things can be a de-stressor.
