Declutter is a word I don't understand very well, cause I am a hoarder, I find it very hard to throw USEFULL STUFF away. Not like those poor people on the Oprah Show with not an inch to turn around in. But I still a hoarder. My poor husband complains about it regularly, and even drags out the story about one local council clean up everytime someone is willing to listen. Ok I'll post it ...
So we have our local cleanup and everything you don't need or want goes on the curb/verge, then the council comes around and carts it away for you. Our single garage is so full of stuff from the kids that have moved out and will be back to fetch it and ours as well. Not much rubbish at all... so there we are sorting out stuff and we having a wonderful time "Not" Him putting out stuff I don't want to throw out, After repacking the garage the old mans rather tired and decides to have a afternoon nap.
Well that gave me just enough time to retrieve some stuff and cart it back into the carport and hide it behind my car. He never goes into the carport so there was little chance of being discovered until after the clean up. He wakes to find half the stuff is gone and even shakes his head at the "scavangers" being so fast. I let him carry on believing that to be the case. But yep you guessed it, he leaves his house keys at work about two weeks later and now the only way in is through the carport and to try the back door which is always unlocked cause of the dogs. I got busted!
So there you have it
