The High Cost of Clutter

My husband and I just finished moving from a house we’d lived in for 26 years. It took a move to really drive home the fact that we had collected too much stuff over the years, much of it junk. For weeks before the move, we dropped off loads of stuff at Good Will, put furniture and unwanted garden tools out to the side of the road for whoever wanted them and put out several bags of garbage for pick-up. But it wasn’t enough. Not nearly enough. On moving day, we were overwhelmed by the amount of stuff we had left to move.

Things that have outgrown their usefulness will, more than likely, end up shoved into a corner in the garage, the back of a closet or in the basement. In our case, the trouble zones were two home offices and a basement furnace room.
