We're finally moved in and mostly settled in our new place. But the anti-hoarding fun has just started!
Behold, the leaning towers of crap:
Don't forget the spare overstuffed queen-size mattress we squeezed into a 1-bedroom apartment in addition to our normal bed.
It's bigger than the oversized furniture!
The financial toll of my habit of hanging on to everything was almost $1000. It cost over $900 to move my junk three blocks away. Three blocks. $1000.
I've moved nine times in the last ten years and knowing that the next move always was coming soon helped get me through the emotional issues I have when I throw stuff out. But we bought this place so we're here for at least five years (hopefully longer!) The constant fear of having to pack and move on little notice is gone.
How do I motivate myself to stay decluttered now?
