Got this one area cleaned and looking good!
My advice to all you 20somethings: Don't let it get out of hand. Schedule one or two days a year to work on things like this. Send the Hubs and the kids away and tackle it. Then you won't find yourself in your 50's with less energy and more junk than ever to have to sift through! I suppose since you have grown up with computers you will probably have less physical papers and files anyway. But you never know.Also, don't get a big house with extra rooms! In our busyness, I tended to throw things in a box to "deal with later." Well, later is here and it stinks. I really wish I could do more things that matter or just more fun. But this is necessary. And January is the perfect month to tackle this mess!
