"Clutter is visual chaos
resulting from delayed decision making."

Whoever said that is pretty smart. How true it is. I was going through a pile on one of my surfaces and found 10+ delayed decisions! I hadn't ever thought of it that way, but it's pretty revealing. I do have a hard time making decisions at times. I think it's because I don't want to make the wrong one. I also amass stuff because i might want to do something. I do this because I'm afraid I might not have the opportunity to purchase that particular book (bowl, trinket).

I have a friend who would never post pictures of her cluttery spots in her house. She thinks it's funny that I do. I do this for a couple of reasons. First, it helps me to look at my spaces through the camera's eye. The camera doesn't edit out stuff that I must edit out on a daily basis. Secondly, I know there are people out there like me. You're not alone ;-)

I'm going to be buying some furniture to fix up my office so it's a pleasant room. I will be taking everything out of it and only bringing back in what is essential for "domestic tranquility". I borrowed that phrase from a family member.

So stay tuned. I'll post after pictures in a few weeks. In the meantime this is some good reading...
