Happiness is a Cupboard

Happiness is a cupboard where things have a home.
Less time dusting and cleaning at home alone.

Time to go down for a walk, meet friends and touch base.
Get dressed with no rush and put some coconut oil on my face.

Happiness is a cupboard used daily to store all the things that used to lie around
or land up on the floor.

Life suddenly seemed so much brighter after we reorganized storage because our existing storage didn’t really work anymore. Our hobby stuff got a new home that is usable on a daily basis, is flexible, and actually works – plain shelves with stackable boxes and a door that shuts and keeps the dust out.

It happened just on time as the already high levels of dust in our locality got a boost with ongoing construction and I feel grateful.

  1. I know that feeling! I reorganized the bathroom storage and linen closet – everything fits and is neat and tidy. I tossed some things that were no longer needed – like a can of hairspray my mother left after a visit 5 years ago and some nearly empty bottles of shampoo (I consolidated them)!


    1. Yesss. Really makes a difference doesn’t it?

      I still remain a Marie Kondo fan – that she knows to abandon tidying when it doesn’t work for the family makes perfect sense to me.

      Watching her shows has taught me much about planning effective storage.

      Glad this poem spoke to you 🙂
