Oh, I've been a bit naughty this week. See that lovely jute door rug above, it is brand new. I bought it on Thurday last week at K Mart. I went into the store to buy some craft supplies for the boys and walked out with the rug as well!!!
Why did I buy it, not because I needed one, the old one was doing a perfectly good job and it was still in good condition, wasn't because of the price ($15.00), but because I thought it looked nice!!! Not really what mindful consumption is about really...
Apart from this naughty purchase, I spent only on necessities, groceries and face wash.
After the weekend's organisation and after reading Joslyn's update along with this and this post from Tina, I am itching to get into a major overhaul of our home to clear out closets for goodwill and council clean up and to discover any unfinished and hidden treasures I have lurking in my closets and storage bins. I feel excited just thinking about what may eventuate.
Two examples from Tina's blog which have inspired me.
Tina found this beautiful bowl in one part of her home not really being used and put it in another part and now it is being used purposefully.
This beauty was stored away unfinished in a suitcase and now she has finished it and hopefully gets the use it deserves.
I'm off to soccer with L and then I'll be clearing out drawers and closets.
Have happy day.
