Along with decluttering, you might also have to make the difficult decision of parting with a furniture pieces that you have had since adolescence.

Whether you're in the middle of a chaotic remodeling mess, or were overambitious with decluttering, it's easy to loose motivation. But take a step back and remember, that at the heart of improving your space, is the desire to have your space support you and your family. Enjoy the future amidst the chaos and think about how your children will enjoy that revamped living space, even if you're in the middle of the "it gets worse before it gets better stage".
