I've been reading and posting here for about two weeks now.In some ways, I don't have a lot of the challenges that others here do. But here I am anyway!I don't have dependents--Mom is in a continuing care retirement community, my kids are on their own, and I have no pets. I'm retired. I don't have hobbies/activities or anything else that leads me to accumulate stuff, and I don't go shopping for fun. My laundry, dishes, and bills are all under control. My health is decent, and I have medium (?) energy.In other words, my difficulties are due to my past errors in letting stuff pile up, and my current lack of drive to get rid of that stuff.My house was sold a few years ago, and I now live in a small apartment within a house. So...too much stuff in a much smaller space than I had before. There is also a storage unit, and maybe thirty boxes of things (plus a little furniture) at a friend's house.I don't have a lot of willpower, housework has always bored me, and I have ADHD.When my grandmother died a few decades ago, my father rented a pickup truck to haul away her mostly worthless stuff. He might have said 62 loads. At any rate, my parents were disgusted. I do not want to do that to my kids. Additional motivations: 1) storage is costing me money; 2) I'd like the place to be more pleasant-looking for me and for guests; and 3) when I do get my own house again I want to keep moving costs down, and unpack stuff that I consciously want to keep, not the stuff I've dragged with me through several states and decades.Thanks, everyone, for your support. I've been lapping up your posts and learning different approaches. What a great community! <<<<<<<<<< I know this. Just working on deeply believing it.P.S. The main things I need to get rid of are papers and sentimental things, including sentimental papers.
