I just threw away bags and bags of junk, things we didn't use, old paperwork, etc. for spring cleaning a month ago. Today, my house looks no better than it did when I did a mass clean out. Does this happen to anyone else? I try so hard for nothing it seems :( I need a hug or reassurance I'm not the only one who feels like this lol!

Nope, I'm right there with ya! It's neverending! :(


None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.shine.gif

It doesn't end, but I've embraced that idea and just keep a constant goodwill box going. We take it in every two or so weeks and that alone has made a world of difference

I'm glad there's others who know what I'm going through lol! It frustrates me beyond belief. I constantly joke with my husband we could empty the house completely and in 2 weeks we'd accumulate everything back!

Ugh, I want be clutter free as well! It seems like a constant rotation of cleaning this room, decluttering that room, tidying the other room. . . . I'm trying not to accumulate things and regularly purge but extended family keeps buying things for dc.

You mean your spring cleaning lasted almost a whole month?? LOL. I wish I could catch the little invisible elves that come mess up and re-clutter my rooms when I'm not looking. I like the idea of a Goodwill box. I just wish I could de-clutter enough so that I had a place to put one. haha

Oh yeah, I'm with ya! I'm going through a ton of items to sale at a garage sale right now and my house is a disaster! I keep thinking it will be so much better once I get rid of all of it, but the sad fact is, it hardly seems as though I've made a dent. It never seems to end!!!
