I’m a horrible pack rat- one of my biggest fears is something pushing me over the edge and becoming a hoarder. I already have the “what if I need this one time in the future?” anxiety around getting rid of things.
I had the house to myself completely on the 4th, I also was off work. I spent 12 hours going through my craft room/home office, book closet, kitchen and living room. I took 5 trash bags and several smaller bags to the dumpster, emptied several boxes I was able to organize things and have my kids’ toy area and craft room almost totally organized- they can get to their toys and I can get to all my stuff.
I also cleaned out a bag from the bathroom and can see the kitchen counters.
It’s not finished, and still very much a work in progress but one day I am determined to have everything organized to the point of looking like a showroom.
