Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
Winter, Spring, back and forth!
That’s the way it seems to be acting around our homestead in upper East Tennessee. I’ll take the teasers–it means warmer days are coming!
What are you doing in the waiting time?
I can’t speak much for myself on the garden front, but Greg worked hard to categorize and make a spreadsheet of our seed inventory. It’s way better than our usual random method of trying to remember what seeds we have.
In the spare moments, which seem so rare these days, I work on sorting, trying to make the camper work better for storage, and getting inspired.
One thing that is helping me to get inspired is watching occasional videos from www.clutterbug.me. Cass breaks down decluttering and organizing into fun steps. For some reason I feel like I can do it, eventually, when I watch her videos.
Here are a couple of that I like.
I’m learning that the first step is always to get rid of excess stuff. Ugh. That’s the hardest for some reason. At least for us.
What’s up in your world?
We have seen some daffodils almost blooming. Some have actually taken pictures from our area that have fully bloomed, but so far I’ve not seen those.
Hope it’s going well!
Keep at it, no matter how small!
Now on to the Hop
Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.

I agree, getting rid of the excess is the hardest part of decluttering!
Yes it is!
Lots of decluttering activity going on these days. Thanks for the video recommendation, it’s one I have seen.
Ok—well maybe it will help someone else then.
I have the most success when I set myself a number. I go into a room I know has stuff that needs to go and say pick 5 and those are gone for that day. It doesn’t “solve” the problem but it begins to move the its too hard because its overwhelming feeling. I can do 5 I can’t do the whole room.
Thanks for hosting.
Thank you for hosting Dear Laurie!
Have a blessed remainder of your week
I don’t live in a camper, but even in an 850 sq ft home, things can pile up quickly. I constantly ask myself-“Do I need this?”. Many times, I find I can answer “no”.
I wish I could just learn that. I think the at little by little I am being more open to learning it.
Thanks so much for hosting this wonderful party each and every week!! I really appreciate the time and effort that goes into it along with visiting all the links and choosing Features!!! Thank You!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
Thanks so much for having the Loaded Baked Potato Soup in your features! I’m also looking forward to Spring! 🙂
Happy you shared!
