One of the most important things that I realized was that I had to get a lot of the crap out of the house before I was going to be able to start organizing and getting a cleaning routine going.
I read Clutter's Last Stand and after realizing how much having all this stuff really cost me and my family I got angry, and then I got to work. I looked at each item in my house that wasn't contributing to the acheivement of my goals as something that was holding me back from my happiness. Draining time and energy that I wanted to have for my son, my husband, my dogs, and everything else that mattered more than these beautiful, perfectly good pieces of clutter. I didn't bother trying to sell anything, I decided my time was worth more to me than this junk. I peeled back layer after layer of this crap until there was enough for me to manage and organize without killing myself to do it, and then I got rid of more.
