I previously did a post on some rolls of shelf protectors that I had in my kitchen cupboards for years so that has inspired me to go through my kitchen cupboards and de-clutter. We've been in this house for over 3.5 years and things are basically in the same place in the kitchen as they were when they were emptied from my moving boxes. I have a few times sorted things from time to time but not a big declutter of things that are doubles or I find I just don't use any more so that's on the October list.
The other thing I have put on the list is to get some photos printed for the empty frames in the lounge room. I got some help from my brother in law to put 3 amazing frames on the wall over 2.5 years ago and they are still on the wall without photos in them. Embarrassing I know, since I have thousands of photos to choose from however I couldn't decide what sort of photos I wanted in these frames. Black and White or Colour photos or photos of our life now, or when the kids were little and since nothing was decided the frames are still empty. The crazy thing is once the photos are picked it would take probably a total of 2 hours and the frames would be filled. That includes driving to Harvey Norman to print the photos and coming home and popping the photoes in the frames yet for 2.5 years these frames have remained empty. It has been an extremely stressful few years and sometimes other things take over my life and these things get left behind. I've decided that in October I'll print and put some photos in these frames even if they aren't my "forever photos" to go in these frames at least they will have family photos in them. I know it will be great when these frames are full of memories and I will think back on how ridiculous it was that it took me over 2.5 years to do this 2 hour job. In my defense all I can say is "That's Life Isn't it".
