Introducing my phone pantry
OK Friends, I’ve taken decluttering and staging to the next level; I have a phone cupboard.
It sounds extravagant but it isn’t. It’s a dollar store box, placed in our pantry so I can store my phone. Out of sight, out of mind.
I was finding myself completely distracted. Always checking my phone or scrolling through the rabbit hole. Being self-employed and constantly available. I had found myself missing some precious family time.
I shove my phone here, evenings I am home. We placed a plug there so it became a charging station for our electronics. This is my solution for a proper break and paying better attention to my family.
I love my work and am fully committed to my clients. I love my kids and family. I wanted to make sure when they were talking to me I wasn’t staring at my phone. (It still happens on occasions, but it's way less!)
This trick has allowed me to better regulate my phone consumption! I leave it on volume so if someone does need to get a hold of me, I can still hear it and I will answer it. But I don’t find myself constantly checking it.
Does that sound like something you’d like to do?
