The office in my house is a mess. There are boxes everywhere, piles of books, dust bunnies in the corner, and general clutter everywhere. What should I do?
Drowning in Stuff in Baltimore
It’s simple! Put it all in the hallway!
Your ever helpful columnist,
P.S. When you do this and then move the furniture to mop the floors, and put up new Roman Shades, your office will look great.
(Just ignore the stuff in the hallway and eventually it will go away.)
Well, if it doesn’t disappear soon, you could lean back on the ol’ three box trick… One box for keep, one box for give away, one box for throw away. It’s amazingly effective, but only if you are willing to actually put items into the give away box. (Of course, then you have to actually deal with putting away, giving away and throwing away.)
You did a beautiful job on the Roman shades. And now you have a lovely, restful room to relax in.
