Clutter-related fun

Since yesterday’s post was melancholic, today we’ll keep things on the lighter side. The first post today is a series of fun links related to clutter and uncluttering.

First up, Naomi Seldin at The Times Union in Albany yesterday posted a new Clutter Game (pictured). Using your arrow keys, catch the “clutter in the donation box before it fills the house.” My high score is a lame 270 — when you need a quick break, see if you can beat me.

Up on deck next is a strip from the comic Basic Instructions. Scott Meyer’s “How to Accept an Unwanted Gift” is a new favorite.

Finally, a number of Unclutterer readers forwarded me the links to two great strips on the cartoon site Wondermark. Enjoy “In Which Beth Keeps Her Books” and “A Rat Has Many Hobbies.”

    390 on my first try (well, actually my second, but the first time I was trying to use my mouse instead of the arrow keys. Guess I should read the instructions first next time!).

    Erin, you did much better than I did the first time I tried it. I got a 70 because I couldn’t figure out how to move the box! I think I’m actually better at getting rid of clutter in real life.

    And thanks so much for linking.

    OK…an embarrassing 150. I always did stink at video games. Ditto to being better at uncluttering in real life…

    Obviously at 120 I have poor eye hand coordination for games…but seriously I am good at donating…I am on my way right now to the Boys and Girls Club with a Lego donation from the boys.
