Decluttering Tip of the Day

Use a list.

I’ve provided an extensive checklist in your Clutter-Free Countdown workbook, but it isn’t your bible. Don’t let it rule your life. If you have other categories to add, or some of the ones I’ve listed don’t fit your home or your life, that’s totally okay.

What is the list for? It’s a¬†good way to make sure you don’t get stuck doing the same things over and over again. It’s a great way to be accountable to yourself – finish a category completely before checking it off and moving on – rather than starting a bunch of things and never following through with completing them.

I’ve listed categories, rather than areas in different rooms, because decluttering by comparing “like with like” items, in one place at one time, is how I managed to get rid of well over a ton of stuff easily, from my honestly not-very-cluttered home in 2014.

If your home is too overwhelmed with clutter to even think about gathering everything from one category into a space to work on, start by room first, and get rid of the more obvious things first, THEN move on to the category list once you’ve made a general sweep through your house.

I also recommend going through by room/area once you’ve completed decluttering by category (which may take many months – don’t feel pressured about this!), to double-check and make sure nothing miscellaneous got left out.

Use a list to stay focused. And when you’re focused, you can finish the job.
