Nothing new learned yet, it's still early.
Something has been bothering me...I saw on one of those "Sell My House" type shows that a person should get rid of 30% of their stuff before they list their house, we're not moving but it stuck with me. And then I watched that 'Hoarder' episode of Oprah last week and I think I heard someone say that you should get rid of 50% of your stuff.
So do the number, get rid of every third thing, or every other thing...to cut down on the clutter...I think it's a good plan. Crazy, but probably works. Can I do it? I'm trying, really trying. I have boxes and boxes of stuff I never use. Linens, cookbooks, movies, clothes. The kids have even got in on the action and have each gotten rid of at least a large box of unwanted things from their rooms. And as hard as it is to see some of those 'beloved' toys in the box, I know that if they are willing to part with them, then I should too.
And in a weird parellel universe thing...my mom just brought over my bronzed baby shoes because she's de-cluttering too.
