How to get motivated to clean out/organize?
Hubby and I are within a handful of years or retiring. When we do we will be downsizing to a smaller place. At the moment we have a 3200sf home. Full attic, basement and a 3 bay garage. All are packed with items you accumulate over a 33 year marriage, raising kids, etc. I want to start getting rid of the majority of stuff we have. (bags and boxes of baby clothes-the "babies" are now 25 and 22 years old, furniture, old clothes, kitchen wares,etc.) When I go up into the attic to try and start I get so overwhelmed, I don't know where to start. How did you all even attempt it? Any and all suggestions would be very helpful. I figure if I start now by the time we retire it should all be done and organized. lol. I tried the search function, but as always on GW it was useless. Thanks, NancyLouise
