Everyone’s given great advice so far, but something no one’s asked yet is whose clutter is it? Is it yours and your husband’s? Or did your kids leave stuff behind when they moved out? Can you ask them to remove their stuff from your house? Can their stuff be packed up or stored more efficiently?
DEFINITELY don’t give up. It may be hard, it may be painful, your husband may or may not be on board, if he is he still might annoy you… but don’t give up. Think of this like a sort of diet – people don’t get thin overnight (and if they do they tend not to stay that way), neither do houses. If you need to hang on to some things for awhile, that’s OK. It gets easier to let things go with time and practice. It’s all a journey.
