Decluttering your Paper Supplies - Day One

One of the smartest things I ever read was this statement:

You can't organize clutter.

Think about that for a minute.  All of those great organizing tools you got from The Container Store and Target and even The Dollar Store aren't the solution to your crafting product overload!  They are simply a bandaid that you apply in hopes they will solve the problem of having TOO MUCH STUFF!!

So, here's what you're going to have to do in the next 30 days, get a grip!!  These are just pieces of paper, plastic, and rubber, they are not important!   Yes, you can get rid of some of them and, don't panic, even THROW some of them away!

The first thing you need to do is to stop attaching such importance to them.  What's important about scrapbooking are the memories you are recording,  The thing that makes cardmaking wonderful is the feeling they give to the receiver.  The rest is just means to a end and -----  here's the rub, if you are NOT USING the papercrafting supplies you bought then THEY DO NOT HAVE A PURPOSE!

Okay, roll that around in your head for a little while then come back here in an hour and we'll get started with the first task.
