Loretta sent in an email: Please, Please, Help me! I live in a double wide mobile home, and my husband (whom I love dearly) is a pack rat. He keeps everything. I need more storage really, really bad, and to organize this house. I am a neat freak, and this is driving me crazy. Please help!

We know that nearly everyone has dealt with this situation at one time or another, so we are hoping for lots of advice, ideas and support for Loretta in the comments below...
