I'm trying to de-clutter. I'm trying really, really hard. I've walked in and out of the wardrobe many times, charity bag in hand, and come out with nothing. Why can't I bring myself to throw things out? It's driving me mad now.
I never used to be like this. I was great at throwing stuff out, did it regularly and was ruthless at it. But a couple of years ago we built a walk-in wardrobe in our bedroom. I felt like Mariah Carey in Cribs; 15 shelves for shoes and 3 seperate hanging areas for clothes (only one area for my husband). I even treated myself to a special luxury; all timber hangers. Chuffed I was.
But now I can't get rid of anything. I keep saying "I might wear that again" even though I haven't in years. But the space if full to bursting and I need to throw stuff out. But I can't. I've tried reading the Organising Junkie but nothing changes.
I need help.
