Interesting new study about clutter- just don't let the kids see it!!! :p

Like the kids will need a good excuse not to keep their rooms picked up! lol :p

At least now if my house is messy, I can say it's b/c I'm too creative to care! :p  (BTW- I heard the same thing about mis-matched socks too & now they're in style-go figure)

  • This is what happens when kids who are overly nagged about cleaning their room grow up to be researchers :p

  • I have said for MANY years that a clean desk is a sign of a sick mind. **grin**

  • I will agree that my clutter is often the result of a cluttered mind but I'm not so sure about the creativity part lol. At least not in my case!

  • Well, then I guess this explains why I can't find the pen I set down 5 minutes ago, but I can tell you exactly down to the shade of pink the bra a character wore five books ago. LOL

    I am...not a slob, but I am not the most organized person in the world, that's for sure. I have stacks of stuff all over the place that I know serve a purpose, but if you ask at any time what that one over there is for, I'm going to look at you like a deer caught in the headlights.

  • Oh, hey! Now I feel like I Must be the mos creative person on the lanet. Yeah, that's the ticket ...

    Seriously, though, I was ultra-super-mega-organized before I had my family!
