I want to talk about Piles today. Unfortunately I haven't any piles of money laying around although I must report good progress on the bill pile. :) Stash has NOT been increasing with new stuff!
Manitoba has Red River gumbo as its claim to fame but we farm on the edge of old Lake Agissez and have quite a variety in our soil. Having livestock we also have some of that gold that adds so much to the life of the crops and gardens. :) But I talked about planting yesterday.
I am a piler, not a filer and I've tried to eliminate flat surfaces that collect my not so beloved piles. But they still have a way of gathering and eventually causing avalanches which doesn't leave any actual clear working surface. :[
I seriously doubt that paper can be eliminated. I just hooked up the new printer and it is already spewing out its stuff. In an attempt to contain slips of paper, backs of envelopes and chunks of paper pads, we've placed a couple of notebooks in key spots. Here is hoping.
General junk seems to move out fairly regularly. Neither the Rooster nor I are collectors. Thank goodness.
But my stuff! It is all good stuff. mostly. I do need it to build things. But when I don't put it away and it begins to stack up into those dreaded piles; it paralyzes me. :[
Now all those good ideas. Those are great piles! I shall be thinking about those as I tackle the paralyzing piles because tomorrow the word is progress! ;^)
