Happy New Year!
I obviously had a moment of de-cluttering breakdown with my last post “Learn to Love Clutter”. It’s not a strategy that will ever work for me.
Seems like almost a year has gone by since my heroic efforts at de-cluttering fizzled out. I ran out of steam, but sadly I didn’t run out of clutter. (See all my earlier efforts by clicking on “Clutter” in the Tag Cloud).
Now that the days have already closed in, I need a new project for the indoor winter months. I won’t let this clutter mound beat me and I have yet another idea of how I might get on top of it.
How do you eat an elephant ? Answer…….. One bite at a time !
So my project for 2019 is to De-Clutter one thing a day every day for a year. Three hundred and sixty-five things less should make a hole in the clutter and one thing at a time shouldn’t be too difficult.
There again what do you do when you have close to 365 socks with no feet to walk in ….and 365 shirts hanging lifelessly on a wardrobe rail unworn for another year ……and 365 bits of important papers piling up in the office waiting to be filed …….and 365 ties untied, longing for a meeting or a day out ……and 365 plantless pots in the garden sheds …… and 365 books read and unread ……….and 365 photographs waiting for an album ……and 365 of so much more unused, days-over, dust gathering, nobody loves me former treasures?
I will write a progress blog report every week using my new Clutter Elephant logo. That should keep me under pressure to continue de-cluttering.
