    I have a combination laundry and craft room and for about 2 weeks I have let things accumulate in there, stacks of stuff etc. So it is really overwhelming right now but I have to tackle it.

    And the garage - it looks like a thrift store blew up.  Horrible mess in there.

      Use the power of "Just one thing", each time you pass by or "15 minutes and I'm done" once or twice a day. It is easy to start when you know you only have to do one thing or do just 15 minutes in there and it is surprising how quickly it works too.

      Great idea. I have used that method before and simply forgot about doing something like that. I will start that today--thanks for the reminder!

    During the winter, I used to dread going into the big living room in our house, it was so cold. But we are getting a wood burning stove in there in a couple of weeks and now we will be able to use that room all year round. smile

      Freezing rooms can be the pits. Hope the wood burning stove lives up to your dreams and that it will soon be a cozy room all the year around.

    I dread going into the kitchen, but that is only when I know that I have to do the dishes.  I hate doing the dishes.

    I'm not fond of clutter, and I prefer to keep things neat and clean, so I avoid the areas that are the hangouts of my husband: his den/office and the garage where he does editing. They should be comfortable for him.

    yes, I have a large closet that is packed to the gills that I keep the door closed on because I don't even like looking inside it.  Guess it is time for a yard sale.

      Yard sales don't generally make an awful lot. Better give the stuff away, one bit at a time. Once bought, that money is a "sunk cost",  you are unlikely to get it back. So forget the cost to put it in the closet, think about space you can reclaim.
