When you make the decision to organize your living space, it is best to start small. Begin with one area, like a counter top or bookshelf. Go through each item and make decisions about where it belongs. Would it be more useful in another room? Does it belong with items that are stored somewhere else? Is this something that you can donate or throw out?
Take everything completely off of or out of the space. Once you can see the empty space, clean it well and replace the items that you have chosen to keep.
Be sure to leave space between decorative pieces, and by all means don’t replace paper clutter!
If you choose just one space a day, follow these tips, and take baby steps, you will find that you can get the clutter under control with minimal effort.
Best of luck to you on your journey to living with less clutter!
