Creative Decluttering, Star Trek Style

by Katy on July 17, 2010 · 7 comments

It was really funny that Max, my Compact friend sent me her boyfriend's collection of Star Trek action figures. But a year and a half later, they had turned into clutter. So what did I do? I gave each actor from last weekend's "Star Trek in the Park" their own toy. Now Spock has a Spock, Uhuru has an Uhuru and Kirk has a Kirk. The actors were super excited, and I received many Star Trek style hugs, which turn out to be remarkably similar to human hugs. (Who knew?) And the above photo was from the never televised pilot, "Jews in Space." 😉

Chekov, Spock and Kirk are all Jews, so they just ditched the title “Jews in Space” for being too redundant.

Oh, that is brilliant.

My husband just walked in and was intrigued by the photo. Love the juxtaposition of elements.

Star Trek action figures are _never_ clutter. (But what a great way of offloading them should you get the delusional thought process that they are ;).

ROFL! That is too funny!

Hilarious! And I’m so jealous that you got to meet the actors!

This is awesome! And so great that you found just the right loving home for the Jews in Space. 😀

A way belated comment but I LOVE this kind of decluttering. It makes my heart warm that it was decluttered/gifted to you, you enjoyed them, and then did the same!
