Cleaning up my act for 2011
Anyone else have an issue with clutter? Seems like the piles in our house just keep getting bigger and bigger. In the past, I could easily blame the mess on a hectic schedule. Heck, between work and kids activities, I never really noticed how out of control the clutter had become. My hubby would complain, but I just brushed it off. Then today it hit me like a lead balloon. The house was so messy it could be featured in one of those Reality Hoarding shows. It’s that bad. I couldn’t believe we had a professional organizer here just a couple years ago who filled up two commercial containers with junk. Where did all of this new crap come from? I guess at this point, it doesn’t matter. So I looked at my husband and decided we should videotape BEFORE shots of every room. Then hopefully, by the end of the week, I can share the AFTER video. So I am using public humiliation to help inspire me to try and clean like a mad woman. As you look at the video, you will hear a lot of giggling. I guess it’s either laugh or cry at this point.
It’s one pile at at time. If I think of the house as a whole, it just gets too overwhelming. But I have already made progress. As I was uploading the video, I cleaned off and organized the desk area. Baby steps!!
