In getting ready for the holidays I am imposing a no clutter moratorium on my house. I have given myself a reverse New Year's resolution to have all of the clutter gone by 12/31/11. So, as I decorated for Halloween this year, I took all the old decor, costumes, etc. and got rid of them. I am going to do the same with Christmas and other holiday decor. I also take one room a week (or two weeks depending on the need) and really go through the area for clutter - magazines, mail, papers to file, papers to throw away, pictures, anything that needs a home or needs to go. I can't tell you how much better it feels to not hold on to the STUFF anymore.
Anyone else ever had this epiphany?
