Un-Cluttering My House Sale

I am going to have a sale this weekend in my FaceBook Store Front. Before I talk about the sale I want to tell you what initiated the need for a sale.

In the book Zen and the Art of a Clean House the author talks about the relationship between the condition of your home and the condition of your life. "You put a house in order and you put your life in order. All the trash weighs you down. You might as well drag it around on your back, the dirt, the mess." In other words when your home is organized and clean then your life is organized and you things are basically good. But if your house is cluttered and really needs some work then your life is in pretty much the same condition.

I have found that to be very true. I have also found that when I am constantly feeling frustrated about everything, a good house-cleaning does wonders.  I have been very frustrated lately to put it politely.

Some of the clutter that weighs me down is all the crafting supplies I have. They fill all the closets and any free space in my small apartment. My husband has been gently suggesting that I downsize my storage needs.   I finally agree with him.  The box in the picture is the first of about 7 boxes of crafting supplies.

This is a very short list of items:
Foam Shapes
Wood Shapes
Wood Plaques
Wood Boxes
Basket Making Reed
Small Gifts for Gift Baskets
Candle Holders and Votives

I am going to be listing the supplies (and anything else) in my Facebook store. To get to my store, you go to my Facebook Fan Page and click on the Shop Now tab. The pictures you will see when my store opens are the featured items. Click on the drop-down menu on the left-hand side that reads "Browse by Category", choose a category and you will see all the items in that category.

I will be uploading pictures to the photo albums on my Fan Page if you want a sneak peak. I have a lot to get done before Friday so I may not have time to answer questions especially because the info will probably be in the listing.

Did I mention that Facebook Fans get an additional 10% off the sale prices?

Gee you could have been talking about me, I have tons of craft stuff, that is out of sight in the basement, mostly stuff to paint on, my problem is the rest of the house and the people that live in it that hoard, it drives me insane!! Good luck with all that!

Is it bad that my entire craft room looks like I dumped a truck load of beads in little baggies on my floor... and so does the guest bedroom, and my dining room for that matter? I guess that explains why my life is in shambles at the moment.

The "Un-Cluttering My House Sale" is going to start next Friday. I had a couple of unexpected appointments this week. Plus I found a few more boxes that I didn't know existed.

Why is it that cleaning out a closet feels something like Christmas?
