I am SO with you on this one....my house is pretty bad right now. I won't say horrible because honestly it's much better than it used to be, but as they say, that's damning with faint praise! I have clutter everywhere....the kitchen table, my desk, all over the master bedroom and the girls' room, and the guest room is the WORST - you can barely tell what color the carpet is anymore with all the stuff all over the place
Anyone else have a DH who is more of a neat freak than you are? I mean, I guess I'd prefer things neat and organized, but I can live with it if they're not. But my constant mess & clutter is really annoying to DH and it causes issues between us - he says it totally stresses him out. So I'm making an effort - before this baby comes I want to get more decluttered and organized. My problem is I always do well for a while - I'll get rid of a ton of stuff and clean up and it stays that way for a few weeks and then it's back to the same old thing, stuff all creeps back in and piles up again.
And we just don't have enough storage space (although DH says even if we lived in a mansion I'd still say that
). Our townhouse is big in terms of room size and all, but the closets are not great and it doesn't have a basement or garage - just an attic (and I hate putting things like outgrown kids' clothes, etc. in the icky attic! I always think they'll get moldy or faded or something!) I am also a saver - I have everything from a dozen boxes of old photos I never got around to putting in albums, to love letters from every boyfriend since junior high, to the souvenir glass from my senior prom, to the honors tassel from my college graduation cap, to the offer letter from my first job, to street maps from every city I've traveled to - you get the idea - I just can't bring myself to throw anything out!!
So I'll be waiting to see if anyone has any ideas for us.....
