Introducing my clutter counter...
Do you have one of these too? I am that person who frantically clears the counter into a bag, stashes it in my office and shuts the door for a party in the hopes no one stumbles into my office:). This, of course, leads to the cluttered office. Ahhh, the domino effect.
I realize some of you are wired with the organizational gene and cannot fathom how anyone can get to this point. For as much as I am obsessed with home design and decor, you would think I would be obsessed with keeping things tidy to maintain the decor. However, I cannot keep it together. It's not that I think things need to be perfect, but just ready for a "pop over" visitor. That's all I want.
The clutter counter is the symbol of my biggest challenge, maintaining organization. When it comes down to it, it's really a maintenance issue. I've read all the tricks and tips to organization and I've tried time and time again, but I can't maintain! I'm constantly working in what my husband and I call the "rampage" mode. We need a fire under our booties to get us moving. Our threshold for disorganization is just too high. So my power word for the year is MAINTAIN.
If I can step up to the challenge, a good domino effect will happen! I will lose my fear of the dreaded "pop over" visitor. I will invite people over at the last minute. I will be able to find what I'm looking for before I have to buy another one. I won't go into panic, rampage mode before a party. Can I do it?
