Michelle Slatalla writes a great column at the [New York Times: Technology page on Clutter Combat: Containing the Enemy. “Enough containers are available on the Web to help tame the clutter in any closet.”
There is, however, another solution. With support and encouragement from Laura, I’ve spent the past month cleaning out all of the cruft that accumulated in an old office, in preparation for moving in with new furniture and a new iMac. While it was challenging at first, and there’s still a small ton of paper to shred (I can’t believe how many pieces of paper have my SSN on them!), major progress has been made, and the place is actually looking pretty good!
