Recently I've been looking around and wondering how on earth did I get in the predicament? My place looks worse than an episode from Hoarders. The outside looks like a cross between a landfill and a junkyard. I will say in my defense that a lot of the stuff out there doesn't belong to me.
However, most of whats on the inside of the house does belong to me. And the inside is even worse than the outside. The inside of my house looks like somebodies overstuffed storage shed puked all over.
So, I'm starting over again. 15 minutes at a time. I know this works, I just have to do it. I just have to keep plugging away at it and keep going even when I'm tired and don't want to. So where to start? When everything is so overwhelming I like to start in the bathroom.
There are a lot of good reasons to start with the bathroom. It's a small room, even if you keep at it until every last bit of it has been scrubbed all over, it still won't take you that long. Most bathrooms are small enough that they can't accumulate too much junk to sort through, clean and put away. So here is the state of the bathroom at the beginning.
Having accomplished this much, I felt much better and more motivated to tackle some more of the house. But that will have to wait for my next post!
