|Clearing the clutter from the Secretary desk|
I'm not as bad as some and I'm not as good as others at clearing the ephemera and paper clutter from our lives, however like Vicki I have wondered, "why do I do this?" I can reason my way around this rather harmless addiction with any or all of the following justifications :
I am Teofils's granddaughter.

The kitchen counter is now happily cleared except for current cooking magazines
This time I found some old newspapers back to 2005 about interesting events happening locally, the 2006 invitation to our friends' surprise 50th wedding anniversary in Indiana hosted by her cousin with directions, etc., scaps with phone numbers of I know not whom nor what, some odd buttons from something that found their way into the stack, a wedding invitation from 2008, graduation announcements from this year relatively current and now easily tossable, and some recipes which no longer sound appealing. Once I found some cash, maybe $20, which I don't recall setting there and then I shuddered, "here I go it's happening!" This time I had maybe a paper grocery sack less than 2/3 the way full with junk, so it's not so bad it just looks worse than it is.
