Charmion, welcome to the group. There are several years' worth of discussions, one month at a time. If you're looking for a published bit of inspiration, I used Don Aslett's Clutter's Last Stand. He started out as a house and business cleaner, and wrote a book about cleaning tips with one chapter on de-cluttering. He received a huge response to that chapter so expanded from there. You'll find that he's quite philosophical about why and how we hold onto too much stuff. And this one typically ends up in used book stores, so you can probably find an edition of it for a few dollars.

The last push on a publishing project today, then I get on with life as I know it. My kitchen is looking pretty good. As I waited for my tea water to heat yesterday I cleared the counter. It didn't take long to put things away (in other rooms) and wash dishes.
