Good for you, Alex! Going through this myself. It’s a daunting task but getting started is key. I’m trying to rearrange and re-jig my home studio, to give myself some space. It’s amazing how much “stuff” turns out to be “crap” as the years go by. I’ve started selling, gifting and pitching things that I once thought had some intrinsic value. I don’t think I’m in “hoarders” territory but I’ve definitely amassed a large amount of vinyl, art and sundry that I’ll never play, hang or use.My next project to keep busy and occupied here in isolation is to turn my unfinished basement, well a corner of it, into a prototyping workshop for my cannabis accessories and jewelry. The main obstacle was removing massive piles of junk I have accumulated over the years. None of it brings me joy, but there might be something I might need in there someday. The procrastination double bind.
Starting was important. I have cleared much of it away now, and I'm starting to think about where I will put the workbench and table for the lathe and drill press.
...and you should see my garage!
Forward productivity and a little breathing room seem a little more important than stockpiling and stashing right now.
