Our neighbor keeps a roll off box because he has an AC and heating business. he told us to dump whatever we want to in it. Last week we took a load over of stuff out of the house and general crap that has stacked up outside.

Where does it all come from? I'll have a cleaned off table or the counter by the back door. Next thing you know, you can't even see the table or counter. Lay 1 thing down on it, and it seems to sprout into multiples over night. Never ending.

I always ask the same thing! It's amazingly fast how quickly we obtain more stuff after having a huge clear out of stuff...it's like feeding gremlins after midnight.

My biggest problem: I flit from one task to an other, and set things down... so I can go back to them again... later... I really need to organize all of my "to do" stuff in appropriate containers.
Exactly. And I end up with a bigger mess

i'm a horizontal organizer, out of sight is out of mind when it comes down to projects. so if someone starts moving things around i'm all messed up. luckily i have Mom mostly trained to leave my room alone. clutter doesn't bother me (i don't leave food containers or dishes or clothes laying around) but dusting does. so i do that only a few times a year. i'm in the middle of dusting the floor finally and have also cleared off several shelves and dusted those so i've made good progress. i hope to finish by the end of the year. :)

i still have beans to organize, some squash seeds drying and then some other things to do too, but they are all good winter projects. i make progress through time. one thing for sure with a small house and one room for all of my stuff that if anything comes in something else has to go out.
