Surviving a Mine Field of Clutter Traps

HOME    Got Clutter?

Low-Maintenance Living

Even the best intentioned can be waylaid by a clutter trap that litters your path in life.



Stepping gingerly around these traps can save you from clutter and all its consequences.



Some of the most dangerous clutter traps are:

  • Flea Markets
  • Garage Sales
  • Gift Shops
  • Rummage Sales
  • Sales of any Kind
  • Souvenir Shops

If you find yourself being drawn inexplicably to any of these traps, call a friend or relative to talk you down. Otherwise you’ll be “picking up a little something” that's known to saner souls as clutter.



It will be useless or silly, and you won’t have a place to put it. It won’t go with anything, or you’ll have to clean it or fix it first before it's perfect. You’ve been booby trapped, and you are the booby. So start getting control of your clutter habit now by avoiding what can only bring you clutter and the grief that goes along with it.
