My brain can't handle it!

So I need to clean and organize two rooms in my house right now and just the thought of these two rooms is turning my brain to mush.  You see, I am a bit of a hoarder.  Ok, not really.  Not a pack rat either.  BUT, I do like to hold on to stuff.  Not broken or useless stuff.  If a clothing item is ripped or stained I toss it.  If something, say a cooking pan, is burned beyond recognition (long story) I have no problem getting rid of it.  I do, however, almost always funtion in the "what if" mode when it comes to getting rid of stuff.  What if someday, eventually, we need it??

Our laundry room also serves as a storage room and has the small "closet area" where we go if the sirens go off for tornadoes.  It's a fairly large room.  The closet area where we are supposed to go though, is filled with stuff.  Fans, heated mattress pads, pool table, headboard, etc.  All of it's in there just taking up room.  The pool table and the headboard just need to go for sure, everything else, I don't know.  I guess it just needs to be organized.  Because what if we need the old medicine cabinet that came with the house that was in the basement bathroom since 1971?  See what I mean?

The other room that gets ogranized today is my "studio".  It's got all my "creative" stuff in there.  But my mother in law moved and we "inherited" some of her stuff (and by we I mean Steve wanted some of this junk stuff) so it's been sitting in my studio.  Taking up lots of room.  I literally have to step over stuff to get from one end of the room to the other.  I don't know where to begin to clean this stuff up.  I'm in summer mode.  That means my brain is in the OFF position and I can't handle thinking about it! It makes it all mushy in there and I give up without having done a thing. 

But today....today is the day I start something in one or both of those rooms.  I am running out of summer time and I need to get a move on with these rooms and make it happen.  I'm enlisting the boys to help.  That actually might turn out to be more of a hassle.  But I'm willing to try.  At least one of them can snap me out of my brain mushyness when I just stand there, slack-jawed, staring at the vastness of it all. 

Ok, here we go....
