    I heard about a book called " Clutter's Last Stand" and knew I needed to read it so I got it from the library.

    Well- that was about 2 weeks ago and I just found it
    YESTERDAY under a pile LOL LOL :D

    But I'm still determined to have that minimalistic life !!!

    Oh wow...do I ever need to read that book!!! I bought a lot of storage containers in an effort to sort and organize my stash of fabric, books, and patterns...instead of completing the task, all of those storage containers are piled on top of the mess...lol...Naomi :oops: :oops: :oops:

    I am so glad that I am not alone with my mess and piles of things that I am going to finish someday or start that some day if anyone needs help it is me but just do not know where to start all I seem to do is move from one spot to the next Wish I could hire someone it just it fixed for me but it would last for long and then would be back in some mess

    It's an excellent book!

    The author makes decluttering seem like a virtue!

    (He also makes it sound like living in a mess is stressful, expensive, and inefficient)

    Every now & then some space opens up in my sewing room. For a time, I am thrilled to have a clear spot. Then I go shopping or someone moves & I take her scraps. Oh well. It can be freeing to have open space but where woulg all the scrap quilts come from?

    Thats funny! in a sisterhood kind of way..when I feel the need for a kick in the tush to get things done I head on over to flylady.net. While the constant emails can be a pain the concept is pure genius. I'm back in order in no time. =)

    Never heard of flylady- need to check it out!! Thank you!

    I really can't stand all the clutter and my DH is just as bad only with him it's food, utensils, everything kitchen related.
    With me it's whole house except kitchen LOL

    I know they have professionals who can help people but I really don't have the $$$ for that right now.

    The only thing 'FlyLady' did for me was cause me to spend even more time on the computer.................

    What's even worse is my beloved Mom has decided to give up with her clutter (way worse than mine) and let US worry about it after she's gone!!!!!!
    I may have to yell at her when I see her. The phone doesn't quite do it lol :D
