So Much Clutter

I feel like I haven't been around much the last few days. I've been trying to get my house cleaned - dusting, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, etc. Why does it have to take so long? Why? And where does all the clutter come from? I try my best to sort, handle and recycle the mail as it comes in, but it seems there's always something that I think we might need later, so it gets put aside. And we usually don't do anything with it - except move it to another surface to get it out of the way. Then when I decide to clean, it seems to take forever because I have to deal with all the stuff that has piled up since the last time. And still, there is stuff.

At least it's a little better now. I just need to do a better job of tossing stuff the first time. If we get catalogs for Dansko shoes, neat kitchen gadgets, or Victoria's Secret lingerie that I know I'm never going to buy, I might as well toss them immediately instead of hanging onto them just in case I suddenly get the urge to order something. It never happens.

Or maybe I'll just hold onto those Victoria's Secret catalogs - it gives Jeffrey hope. (See my problem?)
