Amanda, what a good job you're doing! It's a good idea to take it one small area at a time - one day at a time. That way you never get overwhelmed and it doesn't feel like work! What did you throw out so far that made you feel really good? When you get going, you'll find that you take energy from letting stuff go. Let me know how it goes. You're example will encourage a lot of people!
