Doing something about clutter and mess

Clutter and mess can take over your life. You walk into every room and it’s the same; there’s no getting away from it. Some would try to help by saying ‘tidy just one room and have this as your go-to room whenever you want to get away from things’. You do this and somehow it gets messy again. You try a different room and this time it works (you think) and then somehow it gets messy again. The pattern continues. Is it just you? Is there some force working against you?

You glance over at your bookshelf and amongst DVDs, books, CDs an other stuff wedged in, you spot a title that you bought a couple of years ago that you never read: Unclutter your life in one week by Erin Rooney Doland. Great, you think. That’ll do it. You turn to the contents page and feel like you’ve read it all before; however, this time it might just work. Maybe it’ll change your habits, maybe there’ll be one chapter that makes you do things differently. 

You notice that the book is structured into days of the week starting with Monday. As it’s Saturday, you turn to the weekend section at the end and decide to read that first. The journey begins…

Follow me over the next week to see if I am going to unclutter my life in one week….starting with a massage.

Until tonight…
