Clutteriness! I live by myself and I have plenty of time to clean. I have a decent-sized two-bedroom house and a shed outside. Despite these facts, you still can rarely see the tops of any of my tables. I just looked around my computer desk, and here are some of the items within 1 foot of my hand: Note Cards from my public speech class that I haven't used in 4 months. Math notes that I wrote down when I still had my math class about 3 months ago. A cup that I drank water out of at least 3 weeks ago. The battery-cover to an mp3 player I threw away 5 months ago. Four books that I finished reading at least 2 months ago. An empty 20-oz Diet Pepsi bottle that I drank at least 2 weeks ago. An Age of Empire III disk that I played for 30 minutes and haven't touched since I bought it over 7 months ago. A schedule for my math class from LAST semester that started in September. While I was growing up, my Mom was the exact same way. I used to criticize her for her clutter. When she would yell at me and my brother "This house is a fucking mess! You boys don't clean ANYTHING!" we would respond with "If we didn't have so much useless stuff it wouldn't be a problem, Mom." Now, at age 21, I am doing exactly what I swore I would never do. It just seems so easy to set something down and think "I'll take care of it later." I get so tired of going on my cleaning sprees every once in a while and taking care of it, only to see it all come back a month later. I know the obvious answers are things like "buy a paper shredder" or "just throw it away." It's extremely easy to see the logical answer, but I still can't manage to do it. Almost every fat person knows the right food to eat and how much to exercise, but they don't. It's a habitual thing for me. Every once in a while I'll get motivated and throw everything away right then, but it only lasts a week or so then I regress. Does anyone have these same problems, or perhaps any help?
