I think I have a problem!
Seriously! Look at these pictures:
– Earth to dining room table…
– Husband’s desk
– Our living room carpet looks like this 6 days out of the week…
– Console table…
– Crafts central
– Random piles of stuff all over the bedroom floor
– Closet space
And I know exactly what it is – I am lazy, I don’t like to clean, I don’t like to pick up, for some reason I want to save every scrap of paper, every ribbon, every magazine.
I keep telling myself that once we move into a house, it’ll get better, but who am I kidding – it won’t.
But nothing motivates me, I guess I am just a slob. And it’s the availability and accessibility of products here. I can go to a store, spend some money, get more stuff, but it won’t solve the clutter solution!
I have recently started an Etsy store, and one of the main reasons was to downsize my vintage collection. And yes, I have made some sales, but what’s 1-2 purses compared to a walk-in closet full of supplies, patterns, coats?
Yes, let’s talk about coats. I have an obsession with coats, I think I have about 10 of them! That’s the problem thrifters have – you walk into Savers or Goodwill and see an awesome coat say for $30, and of course you want to pick it up, because in your head you are already putting together outfits, and creating InstaCollages! And at this point you don’t realize that you have another dozen coats waiting to be worn, photographed, pinned, instagrammed, facebooked, etc.
Maybe I just need to vent, but I also function better, when more people know about my issue. I don’t need anyone to hold me accountable, I need to publicly tell everyone that modern day social networks are giving me an ADD, and that my real life is starting to go god knows where!
It’s a 1 bedroom apartment for crying out loud, how difficult could it be to clean?
So here you have it, I fessed up, and am now going to go and vigorously clean the apartment, making several trips to the dumpster!
Have a great day everyone,
