From the Author:

Years ago I attended my first glamorous party at the lavishly furnished Beverly Hills home of a Hollywood bigwig. His long career had provided lots of awards, mementos, photos with other famous people, and an income that allowed him to purchase whatever elegant accessories caught his fancy. The party was a thrill, but the house was positively claustrophobic! Furniture tightly crammed into each room; every flat surface covered with photos and decorations; walls smothered with paintings and more photos. That was when I realized that even expensive, beautiful and sentimental possessions can turn into plain old clutter.

Yes, you can suffer from having too much stuff even if your home isn't in such a catastrophic state that you'd qualify for one of those reality TV clean up and makeover shows. Suffering is based on your response to your environment. Maybe the Hollywood bigwig was comfortable with his crowded surroundings. Are you comfortable in your home?

My tastes lean toward simplicity so it takes very little for me to feel overwhelmed by my possessions. That doesn't mean I've avoided serious battles with clutter, just that I'm easily driven crazy by it. I was driven crazy for years. Renting storage space wasn't the answer because I still had the stuff in my head. Eventually, something had to give. That something was giving up holding onto unnecessary things.

So, if you're ready to dive in but don't know where to start, or if you're paralyzed by the mere thought of starting, I understand. Maybe what you need is a little TLC and sympathy from a comrade-in-stuff. Well, you've come to the right place. Good luck and let me know how you're doing!
