My sister was in town this weekend and she has an awesome knack for un-hoarding my house. (One of) the main problem(s) in my house is the 'C' word: CLUTTER. Piles of mail, every damn worksheet Claire's touched with the tip of a pencil, SO MANY shoes and ... my weakness - magazines.
I have a love/hate relationship with magazines. I love getting them and eventually reading them, but that's the catch. I never have time to actually read them. They just collect and build up and glare at me. Ironically they feature articles on organizing, time management and cleaning ones friggin home!
I counted all of the magazines I'm currently housing. 31. Thirty one! And that's not counting the weekly issues of Us that I get and donate to work. Real Simple is my favorite. But then there's O, Everyday with Rachael Ray, and MORE. I literally don't even know where/how I signed up for them. I just keep getting them.
My sis was so helpful that she sat down and probably spent the better part of two hours tracking all of the subscriptions down and canceling them for me.
I'm half serious about posting these photos on Craigslist just to see if I could sell them. I can't throw them away or recycle. They need to go to a good home. Maybe donate them? But where? Any ideas?
