Do You Have S.T.A.R.S. in Your Eyes?

Posted on 28 July, 2014 at 19:01
After 6 years working closely with a wide variety of people looking to organize their homes, their offices, their files and paper, and their lives, I have come up with a term that describes a common experience that is a key factor leading many to the cluttered situations they exasperatingly find themselves in. 

The term is S.T.A.R.S.  "Shiny Things (© Annette Reyman) Syndrome". 

Want to know if you're suffering from seeing STARS? Here are the symptoms -  

Characterized by:
Distractibility
Impulse Purchases
Forgetfulness
Disorganization

Can sound like:

I love this, where can I use it?
It’s so much cheaper if we buy it in bulk.
This is a great price; I know I’ll find someone to give it to.
It’s so cute, I have to have it! (even though it doesn’t fit just right and I have nothing that matches it)
Do you know how much these used to cost? I can’t believe I found them at such a great price.


Can lead to:
An excessively cluttered environment
Feelings of overwhelm
Goal derailment
Anxiety & depression





Not to be confused with:
Healthy, natural curiosity
Imaginative minds
Frugality
