I'm having one of those weeks where I'm feeling absolutely overwhelmed by stuff. Physical stuff. Not just clothing (which I still have too much of), but unread books piled up on my nightstand, half empty tubes of lotion scattered about, piles of papers that need to be gone through and either tossed or filed, expired coupons, Netflix movies to be watched or returned...in short, the usual detritus of modern life. I'm not a hoarder, but rather a procrastinator. Despite my best intentions I end up setting things in piles to deal with later, the days and weeks pass, and the next thing I know I'm up to my eyeballs in stuff. When the chaos ultimately pushes me over the brink of sanity, I've been known to grab a large garbage bag and just toss in everything that crosses my path, not skipping a beat on my way to the trash bin, only to regret it later. I'd rather refrain from going all Shiva the Destroyer this time if I can help it.
So I need to set aside an evening or three to deal with my stuff. I'll be back in a few days with some fresh bloggy goodness, once I can see more than a few square inches of cleared horizontal surface in my house.
Do you keep your stuff organized or does it sometimes get the better of you? Do you have those days where you just want to pile it in the driveway and set a match? Or have you developed a more constructive method to deal with stuff?
