My name is Susan.  I have one husband and two sons.  I am thirty years old.  I live in Queensland, Australia.  I am a Christian.  I play the piano.  I used to work as a school teacher.  I would like to be a writer.

I have too many things.  Too many pots and plates and cups.  Too many books.  Too much floor to sweep and mop.  Too many towels.  Too many different ingredients in my kitchen cupboards.  Too many spare tubs of moisturiser in my bathroom cabinet.  Too many unfinished sewing projects.  Too many un-started craft projects.

I have been a hoarder since I was a child.  More on that later.

I came to a realisation about six years ago that I have Too Much Stuff.  More on that later.

I came to a realisation in the last few months that, actually, deep inside, I actually want to be a minimalist.  I love order, organisation, efficiency and functionality.  That's how my head works, but you wouldn't know it from my house.

That is all about to change.   That is what this blog is about.  Me working through the things that have made me a hoarder, and solving the problem.

I'd love to have you aboard on my journey.
