I just can't even imagine how long that would take to do. AT LEAST a few days....I guess it will have to wait for summer vacation.Flylady it. Just work on it 15 minutes at a time. You'll be amazed at how quickly it will be done. My friend had a room like that--she was for sure it would take her about 2-3 days STRAIGHT to get it clean enough to allow her grandparents to sleep in it. It was a guest room/craft storage/pampered chef storage/junk room that had gotten completely out of control. No horizontal surface was exposed to air. The bed and dresser were piled about 2 feet high with stuff. The side tables were piled with stuff. The floor was piled with stuff. The closet had stuff pouring out of it. At least half of which was just stuff with a home, but had been tossed in there during CHAOS cleaning the living room/dining room and family room/kitchen.She did 15 minutes of actual work, then took a 10 minute break in another area of the house. She did not leave the room during the 15 minute sessions. (If she came across something that belonged in another room, she put it into a laundry basket in the hallway to be put away later and kept working.) She said this massive job took her just EIGHT 15 minute sessions of actual cleaning. That's only 2 hours, for something that she was sure was going to take a minimum of 2 days. I was shocked. I was planning on going over that night to help her out with it, and when I called and found out she had finished it, I was absolutely flabberghasted. (Me, speechless!)I can't guarantee that your day's long job will only last a few hours, but it's probably not as bad as you think, unless you are planning on moving everything out of the room and sorting it before putting it all away.
