I moved & didn't even realize how much STUFF I had. Had a yard sale & sold over $1000. the next weekend sold $800. Took it to my parents in NC sold another $300. Le some one else dust & clean the clutter from my life. I kept those things that really meant something to me and cleared out the rest...
As I get older I do think about the inevitable & do I really want my child to have to deal with all my junk? I have her keepsakes boxed, when she gets married it will go to her and she gets to decide what to keep. That will be even less stuff in my house. Hope this helps some one!

From book, 'Out of the Crayon Box' (living vibrant, organized lives). They have a website. Their philosophy is "Do more living, not more work!". They simplify everything into 6 steps (Declutter first; then Organize, Maintain, Observe, Refrain and Enjoy!). Biggest steps Declutter & Organize, are easy the way they do it. Then it's putting things back where they go, with a simple (not complex or tedious) system which they teach. 'Observe' teaches to evaluate what works for you personally.
They encourage you to become generous...making a habit to donate (if an item still in good condition) or to toss it away whenever you bring an item into your home...so it never becomes cluttered again. Cleaning is so easy now and my family & I love the space we regained!
