I am Overwhelmed. I am a Hoarder. Please, No Bashing

Please Don't Bash Me. I already feel as low as I possibly could.

I'm new here. My house is a total disaster and I don't know what to do. I don't know how to organize things and I have no idea how I'm going to clean up my cluttered, small house. Even the garage is packed with stuff. My house is not filthy, but it is packed with tons of stuff-no junk, broken stuff, rotten food or anything like that, thank goodness...just way too much stuff is consuming my life and our home. I got so caught up with trying to take care of my kids and trying to keep up with everything that I just lost all control and my house is in total disarray.

me and the kids would go to garage sales and thrift stores just to get out of the house and I would buy stuff that we didn't even need.

I feel depressed living in this house and I know it is affecting my kids terribly too. I don't have anyone in my life right now that could help me through this and help me to get my house in order-I don't really want to talk about my husband and me right now....I'm just alone.  can't afford to hire help. I don't want anyone to come into my house  because I'm too embarrassed by the condition that it's in.

I could really use some support from all of you clean, organized mommies out there. Please send along some support, not bashing. I would really like someone to talk to. I wasn't always like this by the way. In fact, I grew up in a spotless home. Thanks for reading and hope to hear from some supportive mommies:)

One box/bag at a time. Get a dumpster delivered and just start throwing stuff away. After youve made a dent then try to organize and area to put sale/give away items. Work on just one room at a time. Start with the kitchen, and dont move on until that room is done. Dont put anything into the kitchen from other rooms when you start to clean out. You can do it...just have faith in yourself!

Start small, just one thing at a time.  Start in one room and make your way through.  Have a garage sale.

Have a yard sale and donate anything you don't sell to goodwill. Go through it one room at a time.

I can't. I don't have a camera or phone. I think I 'd be too embarrassed anyway. Sorry.

Why not? I don't understand? Isn't this a group to confess?
