Twitter: Reading About Other People's Clutter

Twitter bird picture

People I follow on Twitter - and I'm excluding the other professional organizers - have been writing about clutter issues lately. Here's what I've been reading:

First, here's a quick note from @jjtoothman
Inbox zero is a distant memory. *sigh*
From @brianadreas:
pretending that all the piles of paperwork on my desk were left by the previous occupant & that I'm just here to bag it & toss it.

drawing down on our tea stockpile because I'm finally convinced that having a 20 year reserve of Earl Grey is a bit too much for anybody
The always-amusing @davidlebovitz:
7:04am. How anyone can sleep when their freezer needs cleaning is beyond me.

How does one lose a 17-inch baking sheet in a kitchen that's 2 feet by 4 feet?

I'm now storing pot lids on my desk. I really do think it's time to find a larger apartment.
And from @thebookslut, who is getting ready to move:
Today begins attempt to reduce book collection by 75% without slipping into suicidal ideation. (great books in mail this a.m. not helping)

First: books I have to admit to myself I will never read: War & Peace, P. Roth, Updike, Conrad.

Right now the strategy is to get drunk and start pulling books of the shelves before I can think about it. So far so good.

Glad to know that, Tanna! Some tweets seem too good to only share with people on Twitter.
