Today…..I went through my baking cabinet. You know, the one that holds all of the sprinkles and flavorings and seasonings. It made me excited. It made me dream about days of baking Christmas goodies and party food.
Days that I clean out the cabinets and the pantry…and even the fridge….I feel very blessed. I feel like I’m doing a good thing…just organizing what we already have. I’m not at the store piling more and more in my cart…I’m just looking through what has already be given by the Provider.
This is such a simple post today. No big project…which is not surprising. Our life, while we have some of those now and then, is really about being inspired by what you have already been blessed with.
I am thankful to be the type of person that gets joy out of these things. Now that’s not to say that I don’t love to shop now and then. I also love to go junking…which you already knew. I just find contentment at times in telling myself “Nah…I don’t need more of that…I already have enough at home.” I have to have a healthy balance or I start feeling overwhelmed.
On a little organizational note: Have you tried storing your cornstarch, baking soda and baking powder in wide mouth canning jars? It’s amazing. Perfect for scooping. Just be sure and label the tops. 😉
What are your thoughts on
hoarding collecting, Dirt Roaders? Does too much overwhelm you? Do you love having just enough? I want to know. I also want to do better myself. Please pass the yard sale sign. 😉
Sorting through the piles,
“Our life… is really about being inspired by what you have already been blessed with.” –love this. 🙂
Thank you Brian. You know us…..so you know that it’s from the heart. 🙂 ~k.
You are a woman after my own heart. I was cleaning the closet out tonight and getting out things I don’t wear or shouldn’t wear as I am becoming a more mature woman. Lol! And some of Rods too. I thought to myself even with all these I am taking out , we still have more than enough to wear. And a few still with store tags in them. I would like to say I am more blessed than others but you know He loves us all equally so much. So thankful for all I already have.
Ps: love the canning jar idea ! Thanks!
Carol…you are right. We are all blessed indeed. You don’t have to looks very far…to see how thankful that we should really be. You are most welcome for the idea. I love that one. So cute and handy. That is a win/win in my book. 😉 ~k.
