I'm organizing and de-cluttering my wife's childhood closet. This is what I do when I am stressed. There's a giant pile on the floor for her to look through when she returns from shopping with her mom (which I so hope is going well). But really, who needs to keep this much stuff?
A combination of moving regularly in childhood, and having two houses and rooms, kept my things to a decent minimum. And I've always been a cleanser. When I'm stressed, I let things go - literally. Out with those shoes; away with these necklaces.
I just wish I could make the executive decisions here. But alas...we'll see how much sway I have.
