My New (Insane) Bastille Day Resolution

Today I wrote several long posts to The Compact list about my insanity. I’ve written about my OCD nuttiness before, so it’s not like that’s anything new, or a secret revealed. It began with me announcing my plan on downsizing my belongings by 90% by the end of the year (as compared to what they were a this time last year). People of course wanted to know how I planned on doing this and if it was a painful process. I explained my Get Rid of 10 Things a Day resolution of 2001 and how that has kept the tide of clutter at bay. I also talked about how weird and liberating getting rid of my stuff has been so far, even the stuff I was forced to sell to pay my mortgage. I just don’t miss it. My second post was to a fellow compactor who is struggling to get her hoarding tendencies under control, about all the stupid things I do to keep my house from becoming Crazytown. The response to my posting has been huge. A group of compactors have started their own Get Rid of 10 Things a Day habit and I’ve gotten phone calls and emails thanking me for my concise and simple advice! Tweakers unite! Although I’m not sure that being the expert on being obsessive compulsive is necessarily a good thing…
