I need help uncluttering or just regaining control of my environment. My husband, my cat, and I downgraded from a one bedroom apartment four months ago to renting one 10íx15í bedroom in a house (I have only been in the house one month & it is already driving me insane). In our old apartment I strived for a clean, neat, and minimalistic apartment, and because of this I rarely had to clean and knew where everything was. However, the house we have moved into is extremely cluttered (which is the way the owner likes it) and maintaining everything we both need, along with the catís food, water, and litter box, in one bedroom has left the room in a constant mess. Now I should mention the bedroom did come fully furnished and decorated to begin with (12 pictures/prints/paintings/wall hangings, two dressers, two night stands, and a bed. I actually moved out one of the dressers and both nightstands just so we could get some floor space. I just do not know what to do! I canít keep this room clean (it is much cleaner than the rest of the house), every horizontal surface keeps getting cluttered as fast as I throw things away and the small 3x3 closet barely holds our clothes/winter coats/shoes much less the hampers, but we donít have that many non-essentials left we can get rid of anymore. I am just so overwhelmed and it is bleeding over into the rest of my life. We chose to live in the bedroom since we didnít want to sign a lease and may not be staying in the area, so this is a temporary situation. Any adivce?
