I don't know what a tardis is or what exactly you would like help with.

The TARDIS is a space ship from Doctor Who where the inside is a whole lot bigger than the outside (which is shaped like an old British police call box).

Habbyworld, I'd see if you can get "Organizing from the Inside Out" from your local library (so you aren't buying stuff to add to the other stuff). It teaches you a lot about how to organize your space so that you know where things are, while not being too picky on clutter.

Flylady.net is more on keeping things clean and organized if you are the primary home-cleaner. It has a good system of "baby-stepping" your way through things. But it's not for everyone.

When I was little, I remember my mom going through the house for what seemed like a long time with little coloured dots. Turns out she would put the dots on everything that she used over the course of two weeks, and anything that didn't have a dot on it she would seriously consider getting rid of (things like clothes, appliances, even some furniture!)

That dot thing sounds like a really good idea, but when your have the problem of not wanting to throw anything away because the little voice in your head says "you never know" or the fact you think you could sell it for a quid or 2, it`s just not that easy, although i know some stuff no one will buy or it will cost too much to post, or the landfill sites are already getting full, there is just too many factors here, lol So what does one do then.

You could always move out to the American Midwest - there's loads of room out here!

My very first knitting project when I was "little" was a Doctor Who scarf! Too bad it got lost somewhere along the road.

You could move out of London to somewhere where you get more space for your money! :P

I would seriously consider getting rid of stuff. Get organized and have, what do you Brits call it, a jumble sale? The fact is, you know that you are not going to ever use certain things and continuing to stock and store stuff like that will make your life hell! Give the darn stuff to charity if you have to, but scale down and make your life more livable!
