Thanks to holiday preparations and being extra busy at work this Fall, I haven’t checked in as often as I used to.  I didn’t realize I had so many readers comments waiting for moderation!

If you left a comment, I’ve replied!

Even with using an anti-spam plugin, I get a great deal of bogus comments.  Imagine my surprise when I logged in and saw 9 readers comments waiting to be approved.  And really insightful, honest, and heartfelt comments at that!

I’m glad to create a place for you to feel safe and comfortable to share your thoughts.  Please continue to do so.  I’m SO motivated knowing the conversation is starting.  THIS is how we improve the general understanding of compulsive hoarding as a real mental disorder.  THIS is how we turn the looks of disgust into compassion and empathy.  THIS is how we work it out for ourselves, and feel a little less alone.  And for those who aren’t ready to reply, I encourage you to continue read the comments from those who’ve shared so much here.  There’s a lot to be learned.

Thank you for your comments and your emails.  They are treasured gifts.


My little blog about compulsive hoarding is a pretty niche topic.  It’s not likely to have a lot of people stumble across Not Just Clutter, but I’d sure like to think I’m writing for humans.

I’ve noticed a get a lot of comments, especially after posting Our Ikea Kitchen Renovation Experience.  I hope some are really from people who’ve read my posts and been moved enough to leave a few genuine words of their own.  But I thought I’d share a few that amused me in their obviousness.  Turns out, Louis Vuitton loves to read about compulsive hoarders!  Who knew!?

Anyway, these have been clogging up my comments queue waiting to be sorted through.  I decided to deal with this digital kind of clutter in a big batch today and thought I’d share some of the ones I didn’t approve but just made me chuckle anyway.
