When you’re feeling overwhelmed, this can be the hardest part, where do you even start? Of course, there are many answers to this question, but I’ll just tell you what worked for me. Start with the area of your house that drives you the most crazy, embarrasses you, and quite possibly is the dumping ground. It will be the most motivating, you’ll see the biggest difference, and it will make all the other areas a bit easier to handle.
The trick (and hardest part) is to really push yourself. It might be a hard decision to make, but try to think about it logically rather than emotionally. If you know that you don’t need it, let it go!
