I've been in the process of clearing out a lot of clutter too, as I'm moving up to olympia from southern CA. So i'm hoping to fit everything into my car. Might not work out so well, but..
I looked under my bed...so many magazines! What I usually do is, I throw away all the months that aren't in the recent few. So it is july, and I've been throwing away everything that isn't April-July 2008. I came upon some 2006 ones, it's been awhile..
As far as the closet goes, it's pretty clean - rather spare, because I go through it often and throw out what I don't wear. I can't stand to have clothes hanging up that aren't my style anymore. I like the aesthetic of the colors/prints all working together when hung up, as they are in plain view (if that makes any sense); I don't have closet doors anymore.

Don't throw anything away. Well, I do (when I'm short oncash).

My mother doesn't throw anything away. Anything she's not "feeling" she will store away. She'll get the box out maybe a few months later, and she will find something that she used to hate but with the changing fashions, she'll like it again.

^ Well, I used to not throw anything away ... that's why I have to have a clutter-clearing style now Although really anyone who lives in an affluent society needs one, if only to deal with what the post office is delivering ...

Seriously, though, clutter keeps you stuck and weighs you down ... it's not a good thing

I'm trying to clean my closet, because I have to many clothes I dont wear. But I can't throw anything away, I always think maybe I need it one day.

My closet used to be stuffed but I downsized drastically. I really felt relieved.

My situation is similar, with newspapers in lieu of magazines. I'll read the articles, fold the paper, then toss it into an ever-growing stack. My hope is that someday, years from now, I can look back and reminisce on the big stories from long ago.

Still, I fear the pile will soon take over my house - newspapers come every day, after all.

I can't wait to move into our new house and clear all of our clutter... I have mild OCD when it comes to cleaning, lol.

^ Be careful not to create a fire hazard, seanut There is microfiche of all that stuff at the library you know, in case you get nostalgic

My sister is too, B, as I learned when she visited this past weekend & scrubbed things down for me It's amazing what she can do with vinegar

Maybe you could do something similar to what my dad did, Seanut... He collected every front page of his favourite newspaper - from every Sunday for each year, and made a little book/album out of them He is a delightful man

That is a great idea! It'd save tons of space, and if I put the pages in plastic protective covers I wouldn't need to worry about getting newspaper ink on my hands. Thanks for the suggestion!

Glad to help!

We're moving into our new house on Saturday, and I have my clutter clearing hat on! If we haven't used it and I can't see any need for it, it goes!
