Overcoming the Clutter Monster

Today is a proud moment for me. I have a deep dark secret I have never told you...I am a pack rat! My house appears perfectly straightened and tidy but beyond the closet and storage room doors it is a huge overwhelming mess!

Have a blessed day!

I also have a huge box full of DVDs and another few stacks of video tapes we're getting rid of and then there's the...... Oops...started to hi-jack your comments. Heehee! Anyway, you go girl. Way to tackle your stuff and de-clutter.

  2. I SOOOO know how you feel! Brave girl! I've been working on mine for months, and somehow it just grows overnight so I've never gotten in fully cleaned out! Yeah, I'm with you on the pack rat thing. I hope you're "cured" and that I will be too!



Thanks for taking a minute to share your thoughts. I love hearing what YOU have to say:)
