Spill·age: n. The state of spilling; commonly used to describe the overflow of clutter.
Clut·ter: n. A confused or disordered state or collection. See New Year’s resolutions, 2005’s W-2, and that little slip of paper with Teddy’s number on it.
Ted·dy: n. God only knows.
Time for some new definitions from Sandra Briggs of Organize It All. Either at your home or office (or both) or over the phone, Briggs assesses the scope of your disarray and walks you through a lifestyle survey (so honesty is the only policy).
Then she tallies your scores and returns to implement simple tricks (arranging your PC desktop and folders) and real tools (her latest, greatest find at The Container Store) to get your space in tip-top shape. (Note: Knowing which pile items should belong in does not constitute order.)
The only problem? You may find it hard to survive without her.
Which is more than you’d ever say about old Teddy.
