Clut`ter To fill with scattered or disordered things that restrict movement or efficiency. A collection of things lying about in an untidy mass.
Or, as the author says, “all that stuff you've got all over the place that everybody keeps telling you to get rid of."
Normal Clutter Invasions
|(c) Wednesday Elf Sorting & Packing to Move|
We all deal with some form of clutter from time to time, no where near as bad as my current chaotic "moving mess".
- The children scatter their toys throughout the living room because they want to play where their special adults are instead of in the playroom or their bedrooms.
- We get out a project and the dining room table stays cluttered while we are working on it.
- You get interrupted in the middle of a long-term desk or computer project and would lose your place if you put it away before you were finished with it.
- You have a sewing or crafting project that will take several days to complete and putting it away before you are done would be wasted effort.
The clutter referred to in this, and similar, books refers to the stuff that starts as a small problem and, over time, becomes a very large and overwhelming situation. By that time, we make excuses for not dealing with it. Now the 'clutterbug' handles it by saying “I'll just put it over here 'for now'. But soon 'for now' becomes forever and here comes that clutter crisis.

How to Conquer Clutter is a helpful guide to get control of and 'conquer' your clutter! Having read this book myself (which helped me especially with my admittedly biggest clutter problem area ~ dealing with paper - filing, purging, processing, etc), I am now passing my copy of the book on to my daughter, who is an admitted 'pack rat' just like her dad.
