Way back behind some cake-decorating stuff on a kitchen shelf, I discovered a toy trash can that held Halloween candy once upon a time. After the candy got eaten, the container ended up buried at the back of the shelf, where it might never have been found again…

The lesson here is obvious enough—real trash cans need to be taken out regularly, and so does all the random clutter that builds up in the house when nobody is paying attention!

About Clutter Comedy: Every Sunday (which I envision as a day of rest after a productive week of de-cluttering) I post a Clutter Comedy article describing my most memorable clutter discovery of the week. Other bloggers who wish to join in are welcome—just post a link in the comments! There’s no need to publish any “before” photos of your clutter, if they are too embarrassing. The idea is simply to get motivated to clean it up, while having a bit of fun too!
