this is a common problem and is addressed in the book Buried In treasures. you get overly focused on the small details of organizing instead of on the big picture of getting rid of stuff. It's a great book and they have exercises to help you get past this.
Where do you get the idea that OP's mom is letting him/her do anything?
OP, do not clean the fuck out of anything, unless you want it twice as bad in a fraction of the time.
There are a couple books you might want to read to help you understand the thinking patterns of a hoarder, and might help you figure out how to best talk to your mom...
