I am getting a handle on getting the clutter out of this house. So far have both attics done, and a storage room. The next one to tackle is an upstairs hall. It is unreal how much stuff can be stuffed into a long hall.
But first before I get to the hall, I have to get to my sewing/craft room. Can not walk into that room without knocking something off of something else.
I shift the room every year, to accommodate a Christmas tree in the living room. Since we need to access the sun room in the winter, and the tree blocks the door to that room from the living room, I have to use the door in my sewing/craft room. So everything in front of that door has to move. Then after the tree comes down, it all shifts back again. Since everything was shifted, there is no where to put anything, so it just gets stacked somewhere, and those stacks tend to slide when they get too high. There have been a few avalanches so far, which means the floor is now covered with stuff as well.
I figure 2-3 days and it should look nice in there again, and I should be rid of about a quarter of the stuff in there. All the supplies for things I no longer make can go, as well as fabric I know I will never use, and patterns I will never use.
I have, after the sewing/craft room, 6 more rooms to clean and declutter and the house will look nice again. I am planning to be at least half done by the beginning of summer.
