It IS spring even if it doesn't necessarily feel or look like it much this week in the PNW. But hey that is the PNW for ya. I wouldn't call myself a hoarder (except when it comes to yarn, but we all have our addictions right? Right?!) but I do have a hard time throwing things away. I always worry it's important or that even if I haven't used it in three years that as soon as it's gone I will suddenly need it like right. now! I have actually had that happen before which just makes that neurosis even worse. I hate clutter and yet my house feels filled with clutter and not much else. It doesn't help that we literally have no storage space at all so things just kind of fall on the floor or the kitchen counter, or the one teeny hall closet of doom. It drives me nuts but I have no idea how to clear out the clutter and organize. Then on top of that it seems to take extra money to get organized and that drives me crazy too.
So how do you motivate a bunch of kids and a lazy mom? A contest of course! It will b a race to see who can get their room the cleanest the fastest and gather up the most items for donation/garage sale. I guess we'll see how it goes once I get off my bum and crank up some tunes!
