Time to diminish the piles. I’m buried beneath clutter and I despise it.
My goal for the remainder of the week is to clear away all the useless
crap clutter suffocating surrounding me.
Our apartment is anarchy and it’s amazing how quickly clutter accumulates, taking up unnecessary space and festering in every nook and cranny. It’s time to remove all the senseless, stagnant ‘stuff’ and dedicate that space to items which are important to me.
Me verses The Crap, my plan of attack:
Tomorrow morning, before my first cup of coffee, I’ll flip on my favorite Pandora channel and sway to some beats as I de-clutter-itize, or prioritize which clutter/junky room corner to first tackle. As I poke around in an attempt to corral stuff, I’ll maul over these questions; when was this last used? Do I love this?
My reward for completing the task of unsnarling a chaotic nook: a fresh, full-bodied cup of coffee from the french press.
Hodgepodge of other goals this week:
* What I have roosting in the fridge: onion, tomato, bell peppers, cheese and mushrooms; tomorrow, pick up whole wheat dough and pizza sauce for a tasty oven-baked pizza for dinner.
* Pay my car insurance. DONE
* Fix the control arm/ball joint in my car (to be completed during the weekend, with M. playing mechanic.) The part itself cost $200, and it was triple that amount to take my car in for repairs.
* Broke-Ass Mommy was at 18 subscribers when I made a goal to reach 25 by the end of this week.
Current subscribers: 22
A reasonable start, I believe.
