Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
I have a couple of regular cat-sitting gigs, and I spent the last four days going back and forth to a house that is just under 5,000⏍, on an acre of well-tended land. They manage to not have clutter around and the house isn't overfull of furniture and stuff, yet there are plenty of things on display. They collect rocks and coral, rugs and Southwestern art, but if they have more it is put aside for another time: there isn't too much stuff out.

I have theories. That size house, with two people (now) living in it, plus a guest house across a porch next to the second garage, means they don't have a guest room in the house were stuff gets dumped. They have built in lots of storage. There are multiple bathrooms to hold various products so it isn't all bunched up on one or two rooms. They have a weekly housekeeper and a robotic cat litter box.

All of that said, if they were slobs as large as the house is it would be full of stuff. So there must be some discipline involved there. I'd love to tap into it.

And yes, I was playing with the html symbol for square foot - it doesn't look as good as the written box with a line through from top to bottom.
