To Further My Humiliation

Items I DID FIND While Searching for the Social Security Cards

  • BOTH of the stubs that were at one time attached to the girls actual social security cards - I KNOW!
  • Envelopes with wisps from first haircuts for BOTH girls
  • 1 set of Pokemon stickers
  • At least 3 sets of leftover school photos
  • 2 pictures of Brian's sister when she was about 2 years old
  • A gazillion unidentifiable ultrasound pictures of Brooke - in my defense they were at least tucked in my pregnancy calendar
  • Roughly 27 certificates, still in the plastic baggies, that state I paid a shit load of money for my children to learn to swim
  • Fake tattoos included
  • A book Multiple Choice, according to the dog ear I apparently got to page 54
  • 2 still wrapped votive candles in the large gift box I took the jar candle out of at Christmas
And there you have it. The crap that is hiding in my closet. Where do you hide your clutter?

I have one drawer that it all falls in....but really, I have to clean it out about every 5 mo or it overflows.
You are too funny.

Lizzie is going into grade 5 so I have at least 4 sets of leftover school photos floating around the various 'go-to' drawers, shelves, cupboards in my home. Somehow my daughter's birth certificate has been 'lost' in my home. I always find similar treasures to yours whenever I clear out clutter.

Thanks for your post the other day. I went to istockphto and found some great ideas.

It's not hidden. It's all over my house. Sigh!

What are you talking about hide? You have seen my house...it is all just randomly strewn around...luckily I have a large enough house for it not to swallow me whole! However for this weekend it while all be strategically placed in my room with the door closed!!!

Apparently we hide our clutter in the office closet! We cleaned it out this week . . . filled the entire back of the Jeep Grand Cherokee (seats down) with stuff for Goodwill . . . and that was just the stuff we thought was worthy of being passed on!

We did, however, FIND the SS Cards . . . in the fireproof box . . . that we haven't been able to locate for about 8 months . . . due to the truckload of "stuff" we apparently thought we needed to keep.

My clutter is everywhere! I am so darn nervous that I will lose something important I just pile everything in stacks. I'm afraid if I put things away I won't remember where...case in point.

What clutter? OCD who?

Anywhere. As long as it is out of my sight!

I keep my clutter in plain sight. I don't want it getting angry in a closet somewhere and conspiring to take me down.
