Band Wagon Thinking

If you read blogs, you can't miss the January theme of the month - simplify, de-clutter, organize!!


What is it about the simple month of January that brings out this clean-up, clean-out feeling in folks?  Why does everyone jump right on this band wagon very single January?
  • Is it a reaction to the rampant consumerism of November and December?
  • Is it that the pathway from your front door to your refrigerator has gotten too narrow to negotiate?
  • Is it that you bought yet another hammer, because you can't find the 5 others you own?
  • Is it that you are trapped in your house for the first really cold month of the winter, and you are forced to face down all your crap? 
 "Holy Crap!!
  Where did all this crap come from?
  Is the crap multiplying on its own?
  Have 5 other families moved their crap in when I wasn't looking?
 Crap, crap, crap!!

  Guess my new favorite word!

No, I am not going to bore you with my January Simplicity Post du gour.  I have already done that 16 times over the life of this blog.  It is not a new topic for me.  In fact, to be successful at de-crapping cluttering, it shouldn't be a new topic, or a January topic, or a seasonal project.  

It needs to be a life style!

So, how is that for NOT blogging about de-cluttering!!


  1. Regardless, I am inspired anew to get rid of some of my c###.

  2. I've gotten rid and organized a lot of 'crap' the past couple of weeks. I'm going to try really hard to not let things get out of hand again!!

  3. I agree with your conclusion... it needs to be a life style!

  4. It would be a great life style - I have to accept it isn't mine so, I need to do periodic decluttering or I will look like that picture you posted!


Yes, you do want to comment! I can see it in your face:-)
