At least I'm not a NASTY slob, just a lazy one. The rubbish I've found is mostly paper: junk mail, bags, &c.
Most of the books are now fit happily onto bookshelves in my bedroom (and will get alphabetized at some point). Most of the shelfspace I had- which when I got the new shelves in the hallway was SHELVES and SHELVES of space- is now eaten up.
Most of the dirty clothes are in a hamper waiting to get washed.
And somehow, it seems like I've done nothing. Pfui.
