Re: My inadvertant experiment in clutter

I love your stories - it's been fun to follow your journey.

We rearranged the living room, just the one room, and found a bunch of stuff that wasn't needed in there anymore. Needs change constantly, it seems.

I'm still trying to get DH on board, too. I just keep moving his unused stuff downstairs into a dresser.

the "neat treasure everywhere"......I totally understand what he's saying. My grandma wasn't a hoarder, but as she aged she wasn't able to get down in her basement much, so there were desk drawers full of old notebooks and receipts and old pens and other stuff. She had a big storage room and it was full of boxes of nifty stuff. Pictures and cards and everything you could htink of saving. She had shelves full of old Redbooks and I would read through all the articles on intimate relations....oh, the things I learned from Redbook! We spent a hundreds of hours digging (neatly) through her stuff because it was so dang interesting.

That's funny. It's cliche, but soo true that it's hard to appreciate what you have. But it sounds like he's learning I bet you are really looking forward to getting your living room back in order!

Re: My inadvertant experiment in clutter

Great story. We moved all the contents of our master to the playroom to rip up the carpet. What a week we had. I swear we got rid of more stuff that week than we have in months. It felt like procrastinating, purging while I was supposed to be working on the floors, but I knew that I was on a roll and needed to keep going. Now our bedroom is so minimalist, it echoes. I LOVE IT!!!!

I wonder if I have to empty EVERY room of its contents to really purge properly?!
