I wish I could take credit for this, but a very wise woman named Marla Cilley (aka Flylady) taught me that you can do anything for 15 minutes. And she's right, if I promise myself I can quit after just 15 minutes, I can get myself started and once I'm going, I can usually keep going.
Flylady sells fold-able mesh carry alls for sorting through stuff. Give away, Put Away, Throw Away. http://www.flylady.net/pages/FlyShop_declutter.asp Now, I don't use the "throw away" for trash, because it is too pretty, but I use it for other sorting activities - pack away, etc. These are great! You could use for laundry, kids toys, whatever needs to get returned to its rightful home.
Get support and a day by day organizational system that leaves Tues, Sat and Sun free of most chores-Read fine print for the Cozi Calendar-otherwise the site is great-play bingo cleaning on her Facebook page and talk to other people as they need help or fly through their cleaning.345285
