Cearing Out

I am not an overly messy person.  I am far from a hoarder.  Here is my junk drawer:
 
 
 
Everyone has one somewhere in their house, right?


This is my spare room closet where I keep some extra bedding and toys for the grand kids and a few other things that don't have definitive homes elsewhere:
 
 
I go through these areas that accumulate stuff every once in a while.  I never think that there is that much that is not being used before I start.
 
But then I can pull out a pile of stuff that is headed for the Goodwill store.  Honestly, I don't know where it comes from.

  1. Oh boy, you're tempting me to post some photos of our drawers, closets and storage units. The pictures will be . . . shall we say, less symmetrical.

  2. Wow. I just want to hide under a rock. I am not a hoarder, but I'm not the most organized person in town.

  3. I think it creeps in our houses in the dead of night and finds places to hide.

  4. I recently had a pile just like that on my bed and am pretty sure I could work up another one again. "Stuff" just seems to breed in dark spaces.

  5. My junk drawer is just that -- junk! I used to dump it once a month, but my husband hates that chore! I think I'll do it as a sit-down task before the holidays!

  6. You are disgustingly neat. How can you tolerate all that empty shelf space?

    My wife and I are both hoarders, our house is going to suffer gravitational collapse into a black hole from the accumulation of excessive mass.

  7. Living in an apartment this is a constant process. In a house you can let it go for a while but not in an apartment.

  8. I dream of drawers and closets like yours. My husband, however, treasures just about everything.

  9. Seeing your junk drawer makes me very uncomfortable! I am not a hoarder either, but I certainly have a whole lot more "junk" than you do. I just pulled the desk drawer out, peered at it a minute and slammed it shut. How awful, I think to myself! The only thing I can say to justify this drawer is that when I need something, I know where to find it!

  10. Good for you! I am a hoarder. I won't make a TV show, but I have serious issues! My hubby is a neat-freak. sigh. He puts up with me!!!

  11. You are brave for showing inside your closet and drawer! Mine sure don't like that neat. I am a messy sloppy person naturally, but I try to be neat and clean; it is my favorite way to live. Stuff does seem to multiply at an alarming rate doesn't it? I have a box that I am continually filling to go to a thrift store.
