I know (from reading many organization articles) that organizing is impossible before getting rid of the clutter.
I have some large furniture items listed on Craigslist in the interest of paring down our myriad belongings which came to be ours through inheritance and other people’s downsizing.
Now that a friend wants to live in the Cottage I have been trying to get our stuff out of there. We have moved everything back and forth at least four times.
The latest was to pull out the mid-century dresser listed on Craigslist when I received a text from an interested party. I rubbed it with some red oil to clean and nourish the wood.
And my friend muscled my king-size headboard into the space I cleared.
I know it doesn’t look like it but we are making progress.
Do you have a great organizing tip?
