Why is it that when I need a BIG carton, there are none to be had. And when I need a small one, there are only big cartons hanging around?
I'm in the middle of a project where I'm transferring a bunch of things from one carton to another. Except I don't have the other carton. The project is in three stages, and I have stuff scattered around my office, which is beginning to look like a warehouse.
Why is it we never seem to have the things we need when we need them?
I need a MUCH bigger office. One like they have in all these decorating magazines I read. They have BIG work tables, HUGE closets with EMPTY SPACE, and no piles of paper hanging around on the floor. My office is a former bedroom, 12 x 16 with a BIG closet. The closet has been full for the last 14 years. I do a purge every couple of years, but no sooner do I empty something from it, than something else takes its place.
I guess I have too much stuff. Too many boxes of books. Too many books of bookmarks. Too many old drafts of manuscripts I just can't seem to part with.
While I'm far from being a hoarder, I can't seem to be ruthless and just toss stuff out. How about you? Have you been able to take control of your life and clutter?
