This is my dresser. I've learned only to keep things that I really want people to see on it! This reduces a lot of embarrassement (who wants to see a whole whack of papers up there?!) and clutter. I keep special artwork there. The last thing I have is a "junk drawer". Meagan (10) and I actually have 1 each because yes, we have that much junk! This is the 1 (or gazillianth!!!....) drawer that I actually allow and encourage to be dirty. I think about going through it, but I shake my head. It's like that song: 'Black socks, they never get dirty the longer you where them the stronger they get. Sometimes I think of the laundry but something keeps telling me no, no, not yet'. .
