I'm watching a show called "Hoarders" and it's breaking my heart. These people are so attached to their stuff that they never throw any of it away. A man is faced with cleaning up his yard or going to jail, and he's still having difficulty letting it go. The people from the show are there to provide labor and assist with the logistics, but he still doesn't want to let it go.
It's a little frightening. My home is nothing like what I see on TV, but those people weren't always like that. It started slowly and built up over the years. The only difference I see between them and me is that I don't have the emotional attachment. If someone showed up at my door and offered to haul everything away, I'd let them. If I could afford to start all over, I would. How fun it would be to tell someone, "Take it all. I'm going shopping."
My problem is disorganization. Time to get organized. I'm thinking if I devote 30 minutes a day, I could get a lot accomplished. I've said I was going to do it before, but I didn't have a plan. I'm going to plan it out on a project planner. I'll report back here in a week on my progress. I could make it a regular feature: Progress Report Sunday. What do you think?
