I am in.
I have been lurking here in the Decluttering forum for a few weeks now. I am ready to jump in and get started.
My main resolution for 2011 is to simplify and declutter our home. We sold our house and moved in with my MIL about a year and half ago and we have been working on sizing down and decluttering the two households, since then. The game plan is for us to stay here for my over 80 year old MIL and possible eventually buy this house, when that time comes. So, we have 40 year of my inlaws clutter and our own clutter to work through. And, we just found out we are expecting in early September. So, we need to step up the decluttering process big time.
I am a bit confused on how to count some items like paper clutter. Old bills. Newspapers and such. If I have an old filing box of paper does that only count as one item. It might take me a good hour or longer to go through some stacks of paper. But, obviously I don't want to count each paper one by one. Any general guidelines?
