Jackson's Mama~I could have wrote the same thing!! I'm very good at ignoring the clutter and messes. Stepping over things on the floor for days!
I have been signed up for it since last summer and I have the oppositional defience going on too.
: But she has a new thing for the new year about clutter and I've been reading them today, and it was written for me, that's for sure!
One of the things to do is to go through your Christmas decorations and donate or throw out what you don't use or like. I did this and in the process I was able to go from 6 boxes to 5, and I now know what is in each one since I wrote on a piece of paper to tape on the side of it to know whats what. That feels very good!
I also think even though I'm not doing it very well yet, I think I am soaking it in slowly. I'm looking at things in my house differently as far as what I keep and not needing to be so anal about cleaning. I think when I'm able to get over those old habits in my mind I might be able to let go and let it work for me.
I'm happy to join you ladies in a motivational tribe for Flylady or something close to it.
I think I do better when I have someone to confide in or answer to.
I also don't allow shoes in my house. :LOL
So maybe we could all be honest about what is our worst attribute when it comes to this kind of thing.
My thing is my piles!! Piles on any flat surface in the kitchen, on the table, on the china hutch, on the computer desk, on the secretary....I think you get the idea.
: All I do is move the piles from place to place, room to room. I am in desparete need of taking care of mail when it comes through the door. I also keep things for scrapbooking, and things are everywhere to file in the file drawers downstairs....never gets there.
Okay, enough for know. I've written a book here. But like I said it's been on my mind today since I read the clutter stuff.
