Help, I'm drowning!


Hello, my name is Peggi. And I have a lot of clutter. This is a picture of my long-arm frame, with STUFF piled on top of it. I am trying to spend 15 minutes in my sewing room every day, organizing. But, truth be told, organizing, in my case, simply consists of moving things from one location to another. Perhaps it's stored in a different container, or in a different place - but it's really just moved. It's not sorted. So - while it looks neater, it doesn't make it any easier for me to find it later.

It's so easy to know what the answer is - to take the time and truly sort and then store/use/give away - whatever. But it's REALLY hard to get from here to there.

So. This is my goal. To have a more decluttered life. And I'm going to try to document it here. Since the blog already exists, and this is my quilting room, after all. Who would like to join me? And who would like to offer support?

Please understand that comments such as - "Just dump it all." or "Clutter is clutter - just clean it up." aren't helpful in the long run. This is a journey, and it's not an easy one.

Who's up for the long haul?

Peggi

I've been dealing with that for a couple of years! I'm good at organizing, but not getting things done once it's organized LOL. My sister was here in January from BC and she helped me get a list started of all my UFO's....scary or what. Haven't had the nerve to actually add them up yet LOL. BUT I'm now working away at things and getting a few things done...have to get the time and energy to blog about them! I'm way behind! And, the 15 minutes a day thing really works for cleaning up! But, my sister was really helpful in deciding when to give things away or even throw away in a few cases. Onward ho!
