Simplifying is Not Simple

Simplifying is not simple for me. There are six humans living in approximately 300 square feet. There are five small cabinets in in my kitchen, a reasonable pantry, and a small refrigerator/freezer. The adults each have a cabinet for clothes. There is a wardrobe for the kids, but their clothes are in under-bed storage bins, stacked. The wardrobe currently holds a few hanging clothes, but mostly craft supplies and toys. We have too much stuff. I've pared it down over and over, but I can't seem to make it fit. Thank the Lord, the weather has been kind to us and we can eat outside. Our dining table is covered with boxes of clothes and other things that are homeless. I have 2 bags that are ready and desperate to get to the Good Will, but haven't made it. We had a wonderful time making hats for the Kentucky Derby, but now they need to go... somewhere. I keep telling myself we will figure it out, but we haven't. I guess I'll just keep shuffling stuff around!
