    Default The downside of de-cluttering

    ...is, now I don't know where I stashed things that were sitting out before the de-cluttering began. Now where is that framed picture I was getting ready to send my son? St. Anthony, you are needed again!

    Because I find my memory failing me more and more I have taken to talking out loud to myself or telling my DH, "Next week when I am looking for this, would you please remind me that I have put this here." Now if he could only remember the things I tell him.....

    It's nice to know I'm not the only one! Years later I still can't find the manual for my Viking Platinum. I remember saying to myself, "Now here's a nice safe place to keep it." Thankfully those things aren't impossible to replace. But still, where the heck did I put it?

    Been there and done that and some of it still isn't "found".

    Oh My God. I do the same thing. If I clean up and move something to a different place but I keep going back to the place it was before I cleaned . Then I get to the point hours after looking and ask God to please show me where I put it. Sometimes he leads me right to it and other times it is right under my nose.
    So glad I am not the only one. I think we women just have so much going on in our heads all the time. That's my story and I am sticking to it.

    Worst for me is when I put things away very carefully so they don´t get lost, like in a special place. Then, unfortunately, they usually are lost to me because I can´t remember that special place...

    Jean, the kids are headed your way on a bus. I'll let you know the time schedule. They will help you scatter just about EVERYTHING in your house so all you will be able to do is stand in one spot and turn around over and over and over and wonder what you are doing there.

    Good Luck!! I'll talk to St. Anthony with you. Sometimes he ignores my call though.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    When I was a kid my friends and I used to call on St. Anthony a lot, only in Brooklyn in came out as St. Ant tony, LOL!

    I'm one of the group also and so is DH but when it came to household stuff. DH never really pays attention unless it is about something he likes, like where I keep the cookies, etc.
