"If something sits in a place for long enough we ask each other who wants to get a cushion" This is a fun way of looking at life, if we leave something and don't put it away how it becomes part of the furniture and you don't even notice it.
Having a place for everything in our homes is so important. If things don't have a home it is easy to just leave them out and think i'll get to that latter, or shove it somewhere, but if it has no home and there is no where to put it is it not telling you something else.
Now when I buy something, it has to be something that I know that I will use.I have a place to put it. It has a home to go to.
This can be a great stop while we are shopping, stop and ask yourself do I have a place to put it, will I use it or will it become another thing that sits in the cupboard. Last year I bought a garlic crusher, it looked amazing but I have used it once. I love to cut my garlic up with a knife, I knew at the time that I wouldn't use it but I got caught in the fact that it looked like a really good idea and maybe I would use it, maybe never came.
This is now an awareness that I have in me, I can stop and feel will I really use this or is it just another thing to have in my cupboard.
