August 30 – Cluttered


I don’t know about you but I am so ready for the three-day weekend.  Ian will be home from school on Monday so that should be fun.

Today’s photo challenge is Cluttered.  Unfortunately around my house, there is plenty to use for this photo.

Since we have been gone for half the time over the last two years, we have had many piles of clutter build up.  Now that I am home more regularly, I will be able to work my way this stuff!  Yeah!

Here is a picture of the top of my file cabinets in our home office.  This is the tip of the iceberg.

I look forward to the time to work my way through all of our stuff.  This includes toys and clothes of Ian’s from his younger years.  I just have to figure out what to do with all of it.

Happy weekend and happy de-cluttering!

A few quotes about clutter:

  • “Clutter is my natural habitat.” — Maggie Stiefvater
  • “It’s interesting to see that people had so much clutter even thousands of years ago. The only way to get rid of it all was to bury it, and then some archaeologist went and dug it all up.” — Karl Pilkington
  • “Organization isn’t about perfection; it’s about efficiency, reducing stress and clutter, saving time and money and improving your overall quality of life.” — Christina Scalise
  • “Out of clutter, find simplicity.” — Albert Einstein

I wonder if I will make any more piles of clutter this weekend?  I am going to try not to, but instead work through some.
