I Need to Cut the Clutter

Sometimes I feel like I'm busy all day long, and I still can't get everything done that I need to get done.  Which is why I end up folding laundry and doing dishes and who knows what else until 8 or 9 o'clock at night.  And I look around the house and see clutter and stuff I just want to get cleaned up and out of here, but in between the normal things like laundry, cooking, cleaning up the kitchen, cleaning out the cat litter, etc., etc., etc., I just never seem to find the time to sort through all the extra stuff and decide what gets tossed.

Sure, I can be ruthless with the mailers advertising Brooklyn Accident Lawyers or offering to save me hundreds of dollars on my car insurance, but what about those magazines I've never had time to read or those recipes I might actually try one of these days?  I can't just toss them without looking through them first...  And what about the knick knacks and those books I might actually read someday?

I really need a plan to cut through some of this clutter, but I just haven't figured out what it is yet.   Maybe I can work on it after everything else is done?

  1. Anna, I feel for you. It feels like I'm forever cleaning but never getting anything done. I'm hoping to "find" my home over the summer before I go back to school this fall. :)

  2. Anna have you checked out She has some great tips on quick clutter cleanup. And on how to stay on top of it once you get started. I say that as if my home is clutter free - lol. Not hardly. But FlyLady has some good tips anyway.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
