I'm amazed that no one here has mentioned that used dryer sheets seem to work pretty well as a subtitute!

Re: Motivation

I can relate to this one! Today is the one month anniversary of my last day at work. I started out ambitiously decluttering the basement, then the finished attic, then the pantry. I gave away a bunch of my "professional" clothes, sold some old furniture on Craigslist, etc. I'm watching the "clutter shows" on cable (Clean Sweep being my current favorite). I've seen some progress, but not enough.

Anyway, it is hard to keep focused. I keep jumping from one task to another. Interrupted by working out, knitting, cooking, talking on the phone, reading this board, planning vacations, and taking naps. I can't bear the idea of a "to do" list, though I do have a paper calendar to keep track of my appointments. (golf lesson, pedicure)

So far so good.

Re: Motivation

Watching "Clean Sweep" episodes helped me get through many months of getting rid of stuff. Every day when the episode came on, I would spend the hour decluttering another section of a room in the house. It was fun sorting through my stuff while listening to impassioned arguments and counseling on whether a certain item should be kept or given away....


Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
