I love watching home improvement shows. The other day they were remodeling a kitchen. The owners were not quite horders but their kitchen was messy and no counter space left to even eat. The remodelers made a few boxes to put stuff in as they cleaned up. Of course there was a garbage can, a not used in 12 months box, and a couple others. But my favorite thing was when all of the utensils, small items, and junk drawer items went in a box. For the next couple weeks the owners were told as they used the items in the box they could put them in a drawer. What was left after a couple weeks got taken away (sale or giveaway). I like this idea and it could work for anywhere in the house. Our clothes closet, put the clothes to one side of the closet and as you use them, pull them forward. Get rid of the rest. Guys, do you really need the container full of spare cable wires, connectors, etc? If you haven't watched the show Horders, it is great.
