1. Make The Decision.
Decide clutter is a way of living you are choosing not live anymore. Clutter makes you feel unfocused and unproductive. It literally sucks the energy out of you. You're probably always running late to work and to your other appointments because you're looking for what you need in all the chaos. Sound like you? Well, this is how I lived for years. I had to overcome the clutter in my home because it was getting in the way of my dreams. I had a vision for my life but I always felt tired and uninspired when it came to taking action, due to the clutter I lived in. Being disorganized leads to procrastination on our dreams. Make 2013 the year you DECIDE to live clutter free and really get your house together, start NOW!!
2. Take one room at a time.
DE-cluttering can be very intimidating because we look at the project in its totality. When you look at it in smaller steps, one room at a time it becomes less intimidating. You have to get excited that you are getting started and not how long it's going to take. Take it one room at a time and don't worry about the rest of the house right now or you will get overwhelmed and give up. Start in your bedroom. Your bedroom is the most sacred place in your home. That's where all your sleeping and dreaming takes place. When you wake up in the morning you want to feel refreshed, clear, energized and clutter free!
