A New Year of Clutter

This week has been full of days where I feel as though I have nothing to say. Well, that's a lie, I've thought of a million things to say, but just feel too blah to actually get them down. Maybe it's the new year. Maybe I'm feeling as though I need a change, and just haven't discovered it yet. Maybe it's the clutter from the holidays still filling my head.

I'm thankful that the holidays are over, but still need to recoup from the immense amount of toys still covering the living room floor, the socks and books piled on the dining room table, and the cookies sitting on the counter. I need to clean out some of the old, to make way for all the new things coming into our house.Maybe I can't think straight because this is what I see every time I sit down at the computer. Clutter does nothing for me. Well, nothing except irritate and distract me. I really need to tackle the toys before they take over the house.

I hate trying to do things when I see clutter too. I have to say I have seen way worse though...you at least have organized clutter...at least that is what I like to call it around my house. We have a lot of small toys and books too...and sometimes you just cant declutter ...you just have to organize.

I must agree with Colleen...I've seen worse. It looks very organized to me.

I'm fighting the same thing too. It's a never ending battle here.

Agreed! You look pretty organized to me! I know how you feel though - I have a hard time getting things done when I'm constantly looking at clutter. I thought the new year would get me in the mood to get more organized, but it hasn't happened yet.
