Thanks for the help Lexxiss. I have a box on the floor right now and two box lids with stuff in them from the boxes I tackled today. I know where they will go, but I have to clear out those spaces next. It's all a chain reaction kind of thing. I do feel the spectre of perfectionism rising in me though, and wanting to "do it perfectly" as in find everything a home. This may not be possible, but I can make significant improvements. It doesn't have to be perfect or totally ignored. There is some middle ground here...
