By bragging about what I did, I’ll also reveal that I don’t always declutter so perfectly and considerately.
Honestly, sometimes I throw things into a box in a moment of frantic madness, desperate to get STUFF out of my house.
A slob’s gotta do what a slob’s gotta do.
But this time, I was the Model Declutterer. When I ran across the organizing system from my days as a coupon-a-holic, I knew it was time to let go.
In my warped world, I was once the epitome of organization when it came to coupons.
Because my shopping day was the day our grocery sales started, I clipped and alphabetized my coupons. I didn’t have time to check the “match-ups” before I left the house, so I needed them ALL. (Who knew what was going to be FREE that day??)
I had to shop on that specific day because I was out of the house for Bible Study anyway. Organized AND efficient. Mmm-hmmm.
Anway . . . after I decided to let my pretty dividers go, I felt like a hero when I got up, found a rubber band, and put them into a neat, tied-up package.
Oh. A really noble slob would have alphabetized them too?
Yeah . . . that’s never going to happen around here.
