I agree! A couple of months ago I went through the 8 Weeks of Decluttering (or 40 Day Purge), and then found myself at a standstill afterwards. I really did feel burned out. For two months I had been so focused on purging and decluttering that I even felt those efforts were taking priority over my real duties as a wife and mom. I also didn't feel as though my husband was on board with my efforts.
Now, it's been another two months since I finished the 40 Day Purge, and I am feeling the urge to purge This time, however, my husband definitely seems supportive. I am tackling the basement, and he bought me new shelving units the other day.
I think it's good to take the decluttering in steps, and not drive yourself (and everyone you live with) crazy!
