Ok girls, I need a slap in the face or a swift kick in the butt! LOL

I cannot get motivated to get these boxes unpacked! Everywhere I look, it's just stuff and boxes and I get so overwhelmed that I give up!

I'm trying in my scrap area (which I might add is much bigger than my little corner I had before we moved) but I still feel like I have so much stuff. I want to purge a bunch of it but I can't seem to pick what I want to keep and what I want to get rid of! Shocked

Any ideas or motivational speeches? Help me pleeeeze! Shocked

I have purged a few time and only keep the basics.
Cardstock , stamps and tools.
any Pattern Paper & Embellishment over a year old
I give a way to ministry.

It's always hard getting rid of stuff you have paid for but once you have done it,
it feels so good !

Good Luck !!!!!

take it in time bits. just decide to spend 1/2 hr. working on one certain thing. you will inevitably end up doing more, but at least you know you have given yourself permission to stop at 1/2 hr., and it kind of takes the pressure off. The more 1/2 hrs. (or even 15 min.) you do, the better off you will be!!!

Thanks Norma and Rachel! That's great advice!

Renee, I know your pain! I'm just hoping I can get these boxes out of here before a year is up!

Ellen, I'm so glad to know I'm not the only procrastinator in the group! I really don't like that part about me! LOL
