Hello Everyone! I joined THE CLUTTER CURE group(now the new improved DISORDER DISTROYER!) because I am a notorious Pack Rat (the new term for me is Stuffaholic!). My Mom calls me everytime Oprah has a show about cleaning the clutter. I look at it for about 10 minutes, comment on the clutter, then turn to my room and say, "I'm not that bad". But in reality, I am. I hate throwing things away. My motto is, "I'll find a use for it one day".
My dog passed away 4 years ago and I still have his doggy bed and pillow at the foot of my bed. I came across the tennis balls and HUGE bones he loved to chew on and you would have thought I threw them away! NOT, I just picked them up and put them in the doggy bed! Each year my sister visits from Florida, she just shakes her head when she sees it.
CLOTHES! If I see an outfit I like, but have nowhere to wear to, I say, "Buy it, the event will come." Are jumpsuits still in style? I got a purple jumpsuit hanging in the closet - I pulled it out to wear to a Red Hat affair and realized I must have shrunk because the legs are too long, the waist is too high and ACETATE fades!
I brought 2 lovely prints from an art gallery several years ago, put them in a artist portfolio so they wouldn't get messed up and STILL don't have any wall space to display them!
