Have you been accused of being either a packrat or hoarder? I personally don’t like the terms. However, I do remember when my family probably thought I was a packrat. To me it was just my future projects and past memories that I had on hold for future projects. Sadly, it did not look that way to others.
Getting control of the stuff in your home can give you a new outlook on life. I found that I began to declutter in layers. I started tossing and organizing and it felt so freeing. I no longer felt guilty when I sat down to watch a movie or went out with friends because I did not have boxes of stuff waiting to be sorted through when I got back home.
I remember waking on Saturday mornings and taking mental inventory of what I “should” be doing and balancing it against what I wanted to do. I wanted to have fun with my grandchildren and have them over to play, but my family was the biggest critic when it came to the stuff I had sitting around in boxes and plastic tubs. So, it was a project in the making.

I found that when you declutter your home, it can change your environment and change your outlook on life. As I gained control over the stuff, I also began to focus on living a healthy lifestyle. I believe I was doing guilty eating since I did not seem to have control over anything else. Being organized can become a habit for you and certainly helps with stress management in my experience.
