I started decluttering about 3 months ago and have gotten rid of 1250 items. It does feel great. I can find what I need when I need it. Everything in my kitchen has just one layer--no more struggling to open a drawer because it catches on the junk. Decluttering has spilled over into other areas of my life in such a positive way. Our finances are on track for the first time since the babies were born. We've paid off most of the credit cards and are putting money into savings. I'm eating a whole lot more healthier and have lost nearly 20 pounds. Is that enough motivation? I know I never want to go back to where I was.
