Laurie, if you can't tolerate having a bunch of stuff around, you won't be able to come to my house. I still have a lot of things to get rid of but my energy level doesn't allow for much activity. I have given away bags and bags of clothes to Goodwill and lots of other things to our kids, but still have so much more to do. Sometimes I wish the girls would just come in and box things up and either keep them or give them away. It is going to have to be done before Marty retires and we move. If I could do just a little every day, but I hate living with the mess in between.
And the last time I did this, instead of taki g it to Goodwill, Marty took it to our storage unit!! That was the last thing we needed. Now it will have to be sorted again!
