My Name is Carolyn and I'm a Knowledge Clutterer
I took a quiz after watching my favorite cleaning guru, Peter Walsh on Rachel Ray. And this was my result below. Ha ha!! Not surprising at all. I have gotten really good at decluttering but the area I have the most trouble with is…
I have many, many books, and I do have binders and notebooks from college. I have ripped the band aid off and recycled magazines. I learned to let them go. I knew the article that I hadn't read would come around again.
My desk in the kitchen area is my most shameful spot. I can't manage the paper flow in my household. I have often wondered why is it so hard to let go of the box of paper underneath the desk. I so want to have a clear vision and this is BLOCKING me. Well, it's my soft spot. I may just have to accept this is who I am.
But I don't want to.
More work to be done.
You’re a Knowledge Clutterer
Stockpiles every book she has ever read or hopes to read and or every issue of Architectural Digest ever published – believing that if she owns the book, she’ll inherit the knowledge; has a full anthology of their college textbooks and binders and keeps them to remember the glory days. Mail has been left in stacks to look at “later”.
