What is Cluttercast?
Clutter: n a confused multitude of things
Cast : v to send forth, to shed
Clutter + Cast = To shed or send forth a confused multitude of things
Clutter is complicated. Not just the clutter itself, but why we collect it. And clutter has a way of morphing from the physical to the emotional. My own clutter collects not only in my house, but in my brain.
So this year I got serious about my annual New Year’s resolution to clear it out.
Most of my clutter will contine going where it always has—to local charities like this one, where I dropped off a whole carload.
But some particular items have real or sentimental value. How much more satisfying it would be, I thought, to know those things will go to someone who will truly want and appreciate them.
Which is why I created Cluttercast.
I post an item and tell the story behind it. You help me decide what to do with it. If you want it, or know someone who would, let me know. I’ll send it to someone for free.
There are no strings attached. But there is a connection.
A connection from the cluttercaster—to the cluttercatcher. Everybody wins.
it’s the perfect solution for clutter. And for the times.
There’s the economy. There’s our new president and the spirit of unity and cooperation.
It connects us. And it’s contagious.
For everything I’ve given out, I get back far more.
And the response convinces me that the concept goes far beyond me.
You won’t find the word “cluttercast” in the dictionary yet. But hopefully, pretty soon , you will.
About the Author
I’m more than my clutter. More than my stories.
Among other things, I’m a proud and lucky mom; an accidental artist; a 14-year survivor of Stage III breast cancer; a committed chocoholic; a former TV journalist; a technologically-challenged, baby-boomer blogger. And all those facets of my life contribute to the stories and the clutter I’ve collected along the way.
I live on the central coast of California, far from where I started, in Miami Beach. My life’s path has been as disorganized as my desk and as jagged as the pieces in my mosaics.
And absolutely nothing turned out the way I expected. That’s why I called my blog “I Never Signed Up For This.”
And that includes Cluttercast.
Yet here we are.
I’ll be here ever day– with something new. Hope you’ll be here too.
