The Crazy Suburban Mom: clutterphernalia and excess hooey

clutterphernalia and excess hooey

In case anyone was wondering if the house was still clean...

002

I'm doing well with that.

I think the next rule of decluttering just might be: Cleaning a cluttered environment  is a lot of being on a stationary bicycle and trying to get to your Doctor's appointment in the next town over.

Once a lot of the clutterphernalia and excess hooey was chucked from my life there wasn't all that much 'cleaning' to be done and I think I might have misunderstood what the word cleaning meant and when I used to say, I have to clean up  I think what I should have said was, I have to go buy  a bunch of what ever sized bags the lawn guys buy when they are chipping trees and rent a backhoe.

I'm married to a hoarder wanna be. I'll fill the dumpster with clutter items and then I'll find the same items stashed in my attic 6 months later.
I like your kitchen :)

I'm so not Sharing this post with my HiHoney...husband! He'd be climbing into the Backhoe and shouting "GET OUT OF THE WAY, WOMAN...it's Clutterphernalia and Excess Hooey AwayDay".

Gosh! Your countertops are really nice and neat, and BTW I was Georgia O'Keefe in my ArtistLife!

Look at you, Chicky!!! WOW!! I am very impressed that you have kept it up! And that everyone else there too! (That's half the battle--getting the family on board)

OMG! This is soo true! Profound, even.

I am going to get this post tattooed onto my forehead. That way each time my husband looks at me he will read it and maybe it will sink in.

Oh that is stupid.

I should tattoo it on my chest.

He's a boob man.

That is my new most favorite word in the world: clutterphernalia

It is the reason I get up every day wishing I lived alone. I live with three terrible clutterphernaliacs. Drives me insane.
