Excuse the mess...

Originally a shamble was a bench. Butchers used to set up benches to sell meat from. In time the street where meat was sold often became known as the Shambles. (This street name survives in many towns today). However because butchers used to throw offal into the street shambles came to mean a mess or something very untidy or disorganised.

Inexpensive carpet sweeper. When pulling out the vacuum isn't worth the effort.
