    Default How to CLUTTER your home.

    I thought this was rather a funny blog and thought I'd share it here. It made me laugh. Having cleaned out my inlaws house I can relate about the papers.

    Unhappy

    Well,that was upsettingly familiar.

    Dad saves cool plastic containers to grow "something in". No one gardens anymore.
    My MIL declutters by giving us big boxes of random crap like 1/2 done rug hooking from the 1970's. I whip it out as soon as DH gets home w/ it. (usually smells musty-yum).

    That is so my parents house. They save everything, take and buy stuff they don't need, just in case, and more stuff.

    So so true... I remember when my mom cleaned out my grandfather's house after he died. There was a stack of aluminum pie tins taller than her! (plus innumerable national geographic magazines and plastic peanut butter jars).

    When we cleaned out my Grandmothers house (many, many years ago), we found 297 unopened bottles of Ketchup. LOL

    That's an adorable blog, I've bookmarked it.

    Question: Is it clutter if no one can see it? Hmmm?

    My mother, a child of the depression saved everything. I see a lot of her in myself and I'm trying to change. I feel like that blogger stole my list, though, lol

    WOW!! 297 bottles of ketchup!!!


    I think most people can probably see a little of themselves or someone they know in the blog especially those that lived during the depression era. My inlaws did and it was unreal some of the things we found in the house. They had old checks from the 1960's, a receipt from their 40 year old freezer, even baby shoe polish still in the box from when my dh was a baby. He's 50 now. I have the box. I even found castor oil with a 19 cent price tag. It still has some in it. I kept it because dh was telling me about how his dad use to force them to take it when they were kids...whether they needed it or not. He felt that a good cleaning out was helpful. LOL
