I just read your blog
There's nothing in your pictures that I haven't seen in my house
My house is slooowly getting better.
This may be hard to hear but I have to say the ONLY thing that's helping me recover from clutter is getting rid of stuff. Even "good" stuff.
I can't help noticing in one of your posts that you are saving a non-working phone. I mean this very gently but I'd say toss it. If it doesn't work, don't keep it. They are not that expensive.
I've so BTDT. I know what it's like but I truly believe that the only way to get rid of clutter is to throw out good stuff. Not your prized posessions but the things that you are keeping to fix up.
FE I have thrown out toys with missing pieces because I decided that 1) I was never going to get all the pieces together (I've been working on the same toys for YEARS) and 2) they weren't that great anyway. IME stuff that really gets played with is generally kept together-it's the stuff that no one really plays with that ends up in piles/boxes of clutter and it gets moved around for years. It doesn't matter if someone could use it. I really believe that your time could be put to better use. Think of all the hours you spend dealing with clutter, heck, think of the hours I'VE spent. I could have done so much.
All those clothes that are really good or could be good? NO, NO, NO -I'm talking about myself here, not you
I'm NOT fixing them up. I'm NOT. There's so many projects I could do-I don't need to fix up used clothing.
I have to go now-kids are calling.
