I know just about everyone on this forum has dealt with clutter, and cleaning out an elder's house, apt or whatever. How have you done this without totally losing your mind. I am very organized and like minimal surroundings, not too fond of many knick knacks, etc. It makes me crazy, and I just don't know where to begin. When I first came back to my mother's house, I was gob smacked, I was so upset with the state of her and the place, it has been just over six months, and I feel like I am just orienting myself to this country and all of it, but this house needs work, and I am an apartment dweller and not used to maintenance of any sort, no idea how to take care of this place, but heck, I guess I will learn. Bungalows for dummies.
