Clutter

I've been going to a gym three times a week (when I'm in town) since November. It isn't really much fun, but it's necessary to stay at least somewhat healthy and hopefully lose some weight. So far I've just done cardio stuff and haven't ventured into the strength training areas of the gym.

I think going to the gym is a big part of why the clutter problem has been getting so much worse at my apartment lately. I go three nights a week after work, and on those nights I'm exhausted when I get home. I make myself something to eat, but I can't get myself to do anything useful around the apartment.

I'm going to try and tackle the "dining room" this week since it's threatening to encroach on the living room (which is definitely not a good sign.) If I can get it manageable then I can also finally use my new bar.

Good Luck. Our place is pretty messy too, but I don't have getting into shape as an excuse. Today I'm planning on tackling Mt. Saint Clothing though. yeech.

Thanks.

My place would be plenty messy even if I didn't have the whole exercise excuse, it's just gotten even worse since then.

The main problem is that I have a lot of problems throwing things away even if there's no real excuse for keeping it. I'm sure I'll need plenty of empty cardboard boxes real soon now, or that box my paper shredder came in.

I do that too sometimes. I've slowly been learning to toss things out when there is no use in saving them anymore. I just don't have the storage space... wait, I don't have ANY storage space, that's right..

A big part of my problem is that I need more systems for stuff, but I don't find the time to get a decent system going because it would take too much effort. My kitchen counter has become the place where mail gets stacked when I get home, and it wouldn't be so bad if I sorted it more efficiently.

I've offered to sort it.

Yes, but I have a feeling you'd sort it into two piles. Things you throw away first, and things you throw away last.
