I want surfaces, darling

It was just supposed to be a little spring cleaning. Get the study cleared out, kill a few impacted mystery piles lurking in corners. But instead, it feels like this.



Want this instead. Would cover it with piles of mystery crap in, oh, one-and-a-half weeks.


Help. Do not want Daughter someday to have to sign up with this.




Note to self: Buy more contractor's bags. Watch out when I get a fresh new box of contractor's bags. Landfill, here it comes!

My mother was a pack rat and it never was a horrible issue since I grew up the majority of my teen life in a 3 bedroom house with massive garage and attic. It was understood that the garage and attic "held things for the grandchildren". WHen she died 7 years ago my 3 other siblings had a nightmare getting it all together to give to Goodwill.

Perfect inspiration for some spring cleaning - much needed. And thanks for posting the AbFab clip. I haven't seen one for years.
