Autumn is such a beautiful time in Canberra with the stunning rainbow of colours of the leaves turning before they fall. It is nature’s way of preparing for rejuvenation, growth and emergence from the chills of winter.
This has us thinking, if spring is for cleaning, autumn as a transitional season must be the season for letting go (or as we like to refer to it, transitioning your items). Mother Nature is leading by example.
What a perfect time to review your summer clothing before they are packed away and let go of items that you didn’t wear the past season, ones that don’t fit or those that no longer make you feel good.
The same goes for all of the items we have for outdoor activities, summer sports and BBQs.
Reducing the volume now means there is less to put away, less need for those serious tetris skills, and of course less to clean when spring cleaning time arrives!
Please also take this opportunity to review your winter woollies as you get them out of storage as there is an increasing demand now from organisations supporting those in need, particularly those who are homeless. Scarves, gloves, jackets, blankets, even motor cycle jackets are all needed. How many do you really need and use and would you miss a couple of items? It would make such a difference to many in need. If you would like some ideas for transition options, visit our Organised Thoughts blogs: Shed the Layers; Time for a Nap?; and Hats off to you!
