I have an "organizational problem"... or so others have told me. I like to think I'm just organized. I keep my home exceptionally clean, neat, tidy. If we had to move, we wouldn't have anything to throw away and it's all organized so neatly, we could probably be packed up within a day. My husband often jokes around and asks if Pottery Barn has been buy to photograph the house today. I can't help it. I simply can't relax if it's cluttered and not clean. Oh... and I love Pottery Barn (wonder if there's some Pottery Barn rehab I could go to).

I heard "tosser" has a different meaning in another country

anyway, i'm a nomad so i'm a purger , makes moving lighter and easier. Only thing I keep are pics or momentos and the basics (furnitures...knicknacks are bare minimum).

I tend to be ecletic with lots of various items all over....plenty to look at. Antiques, odd things, Beleek, records... I like lots of sentimental items as well as family heirlooms. What I could get rid of happily is my stove believe it or not. could down size into a toaster oven or small convection/micro oven. Prefer grilling anyways. Don't really cook at my house. get rid of answering machine (if you can't get me when I am home... call back). The answering machine only there to appease those who want to feel like they got intouch with me.
I am sure I have lots of other things to get rid of... just have to see what they could be... TV? naw like to watch movies now and then.
what can I say, i am a low tech kind of gal.

I am a tosser. Our house usually looks like no one lives here, lol. Everything has it's place and we don't have any things we don't use. We also don't buy anything we don't "need". The only thing I stock is food and toilet paper. Those can never go to waste.

I don't need 95% of the things in this house. Maybe 1% of that can be tossed!
THE REST IS ALL MINE!!! ALL MINE I SAY!!!

I probably have over 5000 collectables. I can never move! Unless it is to a bigger house!!
