Advice from de-cluttering experts:
•Handle every piece of paper that comes into your house only once.
•Don't bring anything home that you don't have a place and purpose for.
•For every new possession that enters your house, one must leave.
There is one room in my house that looks like a bomb went off. I've been trying to get it cleaned up for years. When company comes, we just shut (and lock) the door to that room. So there it sits. It's such a mess that even thinking about starting to clean it makes me feel overwhelmed and helpless.
Sometimes the things I need to and even want to do are the hardest to face. I am searching for the will to just get started! Do you have a Room of Shame where you live?
