My New Read

When you live in a 4000+ square foot home, you (I) tend to gather a lot of stuff.  I really have felt for a long time that I have too much junk and it suffocates me.  I read the review for this book in one of my many magazines I've stockpiled (ha).

It looks like it's for me.  I'll read it as I rest from my wounds.  I'll mark it up with pens, pencils, and post it flags (you're welcome Oprah).
So, I will make all the lists I need to in order to "Clear the Clutter, and Find My Life."  Once done and once I'm recovered, I WIL do this.  I feel too cluttered.  I need a fresh life and changes in that life.  

I am setting a goal for January 1, 2010 to have thrown out, donated, shared, or sold at least 50 things from every three rooms in my house.  These "things"  aren't like 1 magazine, or 1 old bottle of nail polish...it's 1 pile of old magazines, or 1 bundle of old nail polish.

So, who wants to join me???  We could check up on each other.  This could be fun.  Yes?

My Mom and I just looked at this book yesterday at the BYU bookstore. I am interested in joining you on this adventure. I am VERY domestically challenged when it comes to clutter. Please do let us know if it is a good read.

Well I feel like we are causing a digression in this process as we added at least 50 things to the basement!

I promise not to throw any of those boxes out. But I'm not promising that I won't rifle through them and find stuff I like! J/K

It is easy to collect clutter, isn't it?

I was just thinking about having a yard sale.

Congrats on winning the book give-away on the domestic fringe. I think you'll enjoy it.

HMMMM. I have a theory that all teachers as somewhat --- cluttered! I think it's because we 'never know what we might use' and we are always trying to be so stinkin frugal that we don't throw wierd things like toilet paper rolls away.. . .I have a lovely collection. Also I have canisters, bottles, film containers etc. etc. etc. . . luv ya and hope that you are doing ok???? Mandi

I'll try.

Is it okay to be an underachiever and only do 25?

Here's the deal...invite my mom to visit you for oh, say 2 weeks or so...she'll have that whole dang place decluttered in under 14 days. She helped me organize my 1150 square foot house into something liveable, uncluttered and organized for the 5 people occupying the space. No clutter. just livable, lovely space. I love you aunt tami. I like your blog.

Tami said...

Janna, you are such a sweetie. I could never have your mother declutter my house...she would totally disown me and wonder how the two of us came from the same mother.
