Michele, as I continue this massive purging, I am thinking about the fact that twice in the past I have hired a professional organizer to come in and help and advise me. Both suggested all kinds of systems… (the 2nd one actually found that the systems were there) but neither suggested this first step of purging! And it is not only having the step but supporting us with the logic that allows us to get rid of it when coming up with reasons for why to keep all this stuff. It has been gut wrenching and I could probably use a little therapy as a result :-), but I know that it is going to change my life when it’s done! Thank you!
