I am a pack rat. There, I said it.
My husband told our 5 year old son the other day he was worse than me. That is a very bad thing!
I am a pack rat, I also am probably adult ADD, and slightly OCD. OK, maybe more than slightly. Decluttering in one fell swoop is very difficult for me - I cannot concentrate on that much stuff, and I get overwhelemed very easily. I have decided I am going to start finding one thing a day I can live without - it may be one item that gets tossed or donated, or something that gets moved to a new home, like the stack of Twilight books that have been on my headboard for the past two months (among many other things that do not need to be there).
Welcome to my world, and wish me luck!
