Every year it gets easier because there is less to sort through, and I get better at the process. I'm also better about tossing stuff all year long.
Yesterday, I started with clothes, today was books, tomorrow toys, then some drawers, and then on to sentimental and photos which I will probably handle next week.
I'm listening to Joshua Becker's The More of Less as I go for motivation. It's good. Most non fiction, self help books are terrible on audio. But this one is really fanning my flame to minimize my things so I can maximize my life!
Girls' clothes are always the hardest because they are so cute. But we have so much, no way we can wear it all.
Books are hard, too. But how can I justify keeping a book I've had for 15 years that I have not read and don't plan to?!
After: I got rid of one trash bag full of girls clothes!
Things I plan to do instead of managing a house full of crap -
have friends over
have a better attitude about helping my children with homework
Do you love a good declutter this time of year?!
