I need some inspiration.

I don't know, maybe some blogs with pictures?? I just need a push to get going again.

Anyone else feeling the same?

Re: I need some inspiration.

I previously googled 'declutter before after' and came up w/ some. The Hoarders tv show is also very motivating. I think about how they started w/ probably not much, then the clutter just took over.

I'll try to put up some pix today. It's too dark right now to take any. I'm not a true minimalist but am trying to be more like one.

I agree with watching Hoarders. You could also visit my parents' house.

Is that the same as Clean Sweep? I like that show. I'll have to google that and see if I can find some episodes. HGTV.ca has a show from last season called Consumed, I loved that show, but they don't have any new episodes out.

This was my project today, the fireplace. It had become a raging hotspot. So now there is just the plants, candle souveniers from a recent trip, one pic of each kid, the speakers (which cannot go anywhere else in the room, unfortunately), and the two metal bins of fire stuff.

IF I could only get the rest of my house this way, lol.
