Spotting Future Clutter

I fitted in a lot today: taking my girls to the dentist, going to work, running errands and then came the lovely part – having a facial and hair cut before going out with some really good friends for a meal.

My girls loaded and unloaded the dishwasher for me during the day which was a lovely surprise, and then hung up some washing without any fuss. Less for me to do this evening.

So, where did I fit in a quick bit of decluttering?

There were a couple of bags of random clutter lurking around the dining room… the usual dumping ground (must work on resolving that one!)

Future clutter if not dealt with

I can speak from experience that random items in bags can turn into future clutter. They end up taking up permanent residence ‘somewhere’ and become a list of items that no one can find.

I spent ten minutes or so returning the items to their homes. My daughter’s been asking me for two days where her glasses case is, but I didn’t come across that. However, I did come across this chocolate that I received as part of a secret Santa gift in December…

How exciting. I will look forward to that!

The bags are now empty and can be put away!

Just in time to post today’s blog.

Until tomorrow

  1. Boy, it sure is the random stuff that gets out of control quickly. Glad you had some help and the night out with friends after a facial and cut sounds delicious. Hope you enjoyed your well earned time out.
