Declutter Decision Maker





Introduction: Declutter Decision Maker

Feel like you need to clear out something, but don't know where to start? Perhaps it's time to let fate intervene.

An easy to build octohedron paper model to help you decide what to attack first...

Step 1: Print Out Model on Card Stock

Print out the Declutter Decision Maker by saving the image below, then printing it out on card stock or heavy paper.

(There's a PDF @ that's of better quality - Acrobat Required for Download)

Print out on card stock or heavy paper, cut out, leaving tabs in place.

Step 2: Assemble

Score all edges lightly, pre-fold each scored edge, including the tab edges. Use white glue sparingly on tabs, fold and glue one tab at a time and hold for 10-20 seconds, then proceed to next tab.

(If you're really stuck, Fiddler's Green has more detailed instructions on building paper models - plus a lot of great models!

Step 3: You're Done!

Leave it on your desk for inspiration.

Just its presence may get you to clear out an area...

Note that one of the sides lets you off the hook.

Perhaps you'll get off lucky today!

    clutter that tells you what to do with the other clutter. This is just another way that the clutter is trying to gain control over the human race. soon we will be the clutter.

    Thats an odd, glass half empty, way to look at this Lee. I would say that this is a great way to creat esome clutter while procrastenating on what to do with the clutter you've created. Excellent mind warping instructable.

    This doesn't help me with my cleaning problem. I can't actually clean anything - I never finish the job and essentially just displace the mess somewhere else:O

    'themed' decision-makers are almost ready. thanks!
