If you've ever tried to conquer clutter before, you have undoubtedly heard of FlyLady. She talks a lot about how a lot of us with clutter suffer from C.H.A.O.S... or Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome.
I think that for most of us... even when the clutter starts getting manageable, there is that room or closet or sliding door or makeshift curtain that hides our CHAOS.... it's not something we have an issue with... it's out of sight, out of mind... but when a guest starts heading in that direction, sirens sound, red lights flash and you RUN to keep them away.
Please don't make me feel like I am alone here! ;o)
This was my alarm central... the one place in my house that no matter what, I just can't hide the truth.
Because you know that makes much more sense.
It's quite obvious the obsessive cleaning nesting phase passed me by in pregnancy.
But today was the day that the hallway was tackled!! And it's allll nice and clean.
And he only looks tiny and cute and fluffy... that is 94 lbs of lab...and he's still a puppy... :o)
Ok... for the YAWYK countdown:
For the Trash:
54-110. Assorted .mark make-up, lotions and other beauty products that had expired. (Dang it! This is what happens when you forget where things are and can't use them before they aren't usable anymore!)
111-120. Full bag of trash
121. Broken lid for a 20g plastic tote... that seems to have disappeared.
122. Bags for comforter sets... but the comforters aren't around either.
123. Empty diaper box.
124. A handful of pacifiers that were scattered in there.
213-272. Assorted baby clothes (will likely be donated)...
274-282. Assorted books that are duplicates of ones we already have.
283. Plastic hanging file tote
284-300. Assorted baby toys.
Picking up speed now!
OH... I don't know if you've seen, but up at the top there is a link for you to post pics of your areas that you are tackling! I'd love to see your progress if you don't have a blog to post!
Tackle your CHAOS... and do it in time for the weekend so you can actually have people over!
