    The bottle isnt going to help. The process of cleaning is endless for everyone appreciate what you have done so one can take away what you have accomplished

    The alcohol is probably why these things are all over the place, sweetie! You are doing some serious therapy on your own volition and that proves you are a super strong person. Don't be so hard on yourself! People pay thousands of dollars to get this kind of therapy and you are doing it on your own.

    Hang in there and remember that decluttering is the same things as losing weight! It doesn't happen all in one day and it is a PROCESS!

    So put down the wine bottle and keep kicking arse on that flat!!

    Forget the alcohol, it won't help you in your quest for a healthier lifestyle.
    Are you eating properly?

    Thanks for the blog! I too need to start decluttering around here. I like the idea of the timer -- focus on one area and go for it for 30 minutes. I can do that :)

    I hate de-cluttering too, but it has to be done! You must do this..Lol. You can do it. Once you're finished, you'll be so proud of yourself and you'll have a nice clean home. I know I have to do mine every week. Once u get yours done good, you'll only have to do it once a week or so. Just think of it like're doing the major work now then from now on it's just maintenance. Kinda like the weight loss journey, we're doing the hard part now and then it's just maintenance. You got this!

    Just as in everything that makes up life, the more you work towards a goal the better it will feel when you reach it.

    What ever you do don't stop. Lots of good suggestions here. You don't have to do it all in one day, limit yourself. You will feel so much better when you are done. Forget the alcohol it is so baaaaad for you.

    Stick with it. You can do it! Try setting a kitchen timer for 20 or 30 minutes, and work hard for that period of time, then do something else for a while. Try to keep things that are really beautiful or really useful and donate or throw out the rest.

    Skip the alcohol, it will just give you a headache! One day at a time, one room at a time, you can do it! Just think about how great it will be when you are done. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    nonono no quitting!!! ok heres what i do and it helps. i take ONE SECTION of a room. one day last week it was the bookshelf and piled up corner. i got a card table and piled things off the bookshelf, one shelf at a time. i determined what i wanted, what i could ebay or give away or trash. washed the shelf, the put what i was keeping back, by heigth. then i did the next shelf. it took me about 2 hours. then i tackled the corner...and got EVERYTHING out of there. vacuumed. got it all pretty. then stepped back and i was DONE. in 3 hours i had that dreaded corner FINISHED. and it looks WONDERFUL!!! and its STAYING that way.
    That was it for the day. i told myself NO MORE or you will burn out. The next day i found an area that i knew would only take 1/2 hour to an hour. and i dont allow myself to do more. its coming, slow but sure. my daughter walked in..i said nothing. she stopped dead..MOM!!! holy crap!!! this looks FANTASTIC!!! made every bit of it worth while. I have a houseload coming for Thanksgiving and i cant wait for them to see it!!

    Don't Give Up... but perhaps take a bit of a break and look at all you've done so far. I have a big project to do as well in terms of de-cluttering and doing it every single day can get overwhelming... Take a breath, take a break... but don't delve to alcohol for help. Reward yourself with something that is not related to food/drink.

    You can take a little time away and come back with fresh eyes but don't give up! emoticon Take a walk or do something fun. Set a limited amount of time you are going to put toward your decluttering and then move on. You are going to be so happy when this is done! emoticon
