TOP TEN TUESDAY (click and join the fun)
...and my list of top ten clutter areas around my house.
- The Coffee Table - Yes this happens to many coffee tables but ours is four feet square. I kid you not! So it gets clutter under and on top!
- Front Door - Everyone dumps their stuff here so it is not so much clutter (some) as much as a need to put things on hooks and shelves, but with 9 people this is a disaster.
- Basement Stairs. - Everything that needs to go downstairs to be put away (dirty laundry, kids toys, DH's paintball gun stuff - he repairs them so there is a lot of this stuff). everyone it seems is to lazy and so puts it on the top of the stairs, it builds up and falls down the stairs
- Grandfather Clock - Favorite grown up place to stick something they do not want to the kids touching, it builds up, the kids know it is a safe spot and want there special things there too. Maybe we all need treasure boxes in our closets?
- Office (general). - don't want to put the effort into finding a home for a new thing, or remembering where an old thing goes, just chuck it in here. Yep. cuz I love sitting at the computer amidst eveyones junk :(
- My Sewing Table (in office) - Don't want to put away your clean laundry, dump it on Moms sewing table and pretend it is mending. Again, thanks guys :(
- Beside My Favorite Spot On The Couch - Oops, how did that make the list? I know nothing about it. OK I build up some clutter too. :o
- Floor Of Pantry - To lazy to take it out to the recycling, just pile it around the garbage, yep that's the spirit!
- Water Cooler Area - Mail spot, key spot (car keys, we don't lock our doors; it's an Indian thing). and my husbands favorite pocket dump spot. Got love him eh?
- Main Floor Bathroom (also called downstairs bathroom). - This bathroom has been abandoned by grown-ups except Poor Grandma Claus who cannot climb the stairs to the upstairs bathroom. However the kids think she can climb over their laundry, hair straighteners, towels, blanket they walked upstairs in, and empty toilet paper rolls
Here is a lovely poem I found on the internet for this post at http://marcyblack.com/dlp.html
