    And here again my bad habit of writing before reading others comments so as not to get influenced by them and I missed your comment about the messes not being so bad when it means you've lots of love and it reminded of a favorite poem of my Mom's... And though I like a tidy house, I have to agree with what it says as long as the house isn't dirty to the point of being unhealthy. Messy... okay. Dirty... not so much.

    I agree with @Z TOO MUCH OF THE WRONG STUFF. Usually this means .... things we don't need, free stuff we got, sale items, is it really sentimental,pictures/photographs we never look at, but that shirt is really cute (haven't worn it in 8 yrs), etc. So .. clean out all the closets, shelves, storage boxes, under bed, garage and most of all store nothing on the floor anyplace....
