I have been reading a neat blog, Unclutterer, and it has gotten me really thinking about all of the "stuff" in my house.
I used to live in a 679 square foot house that literally had no closets in it. Although I longed for closet space, one of the things I liked about the house was that I couldn't bring anything into it without getting rid of something else to make room for the new item.
Last summer, I got married and moved into my husband's 1650 square foot 3-bedroom home. It's a beautiful house (that's it above), and I especially love that there is a ton of built-in storage.
After I moved in, we had a huge rummage sale and got rid of all of our "doubles". Our house is now pretty uncluttered; in fact, we have empty drawers and shelves! Even so, I feel like we could really get rid of a lot of excess stuff.
How do you get the ambition to declutter when your house is more than big enough for all of your possessions? Do you even bother? Any advice?
ps- We don't want to downsize since we're hoping to have kids in a couple of years.
