25 things that you might not know about me : GLIN 1st year anniversary

HI Glinies,   Times flies when you are having fun-they say. Guess what happened last month? Glin was officially launched a year ago in March. In the last weeks happenings I got lost in time of having fun and doing my passion. So now, when I realized that we should celebrate this passed year with GLIN and you, I decided to share a little bit more about me. Me, the person behind GLIN. So now here are 25 things that you have not known about me : 1. When I was a child , I loved to ride with my BMX through the forests in North-East Hungary where I grew up. I have scarves on my knees and elbows that reminds me of the fact that taking risks can be painful but also leads to great accomplishments, like biking up to great hills or almost flying through bumbie roads. 2. I am left handed, which means a lot of frustrations when it comes to using scissors, tools, etc. Also I started to write in a mirrored way due to my left-handedness. I thought, when I was 6 , that I need to mirror everything that others write with right hands because I use my left one. Smart girl, I was. 3. I am an introverted person. I love to be alone, having the peace of nature around me, dreaming about new things. Actually I am called a dreamer. 4. I have always wanted to travel, even when I was little. Guess what ? I have been living abroad for 10 years now, I have lived in 4 countries. I... read more

Find here the best ideas on how to declutter, tons of tips & tricks per room, seasons and so on. You will also find some inspiring boards on how to get your family organized. My personal favorite is the family paperwork organizing system for bills, mails ,recipes, schoolwork. If you are already a trained decluttering person, you might check out the pin on how to speed up your declutter routine. Let`s share my routine for January: I went through the house and  checked which rooms need some serious downsizing. Guess , which one ? Yes, the laundry room is the first. We moved into this house two years ago and there are still boxes un-open. I stapled more boxes with clothes, shoes, papers etc in the last two years….all these together with the laundry. Of course, my other two focus areas are the children room and kitchen . I was proactive and this week, I have reorganized and cleaned the kitchen. However, I still need some buckets and small containers to give it a final touch. My goal for February is to downsize the toys in the playing room. Deep breath. It will take some time and effort. I will let you know, how it is coming along. If you got inspired here are 5 questions to help you declutter: 1. Is this item something I use regularly? 2. Am I saving this just... read more
