Early in March, I hosted my monthly planning workshop on decluttering. At the time I was in major spring-cleaning mode, ready to get organized for the season. Now, just a few weeks later the world feels very different.
Honestly, each day feels longer than the last. In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, things are changing FAST. We’re all doing our best to keep up and navigate a new normal. My team and I are working on resources to share. We want to provide as much as possible at this time and while we don’t want to push something non-essential, in times of stress getting organized can help. Making lists, planning, decluttering and cleaning can be therapeutic.
So today, I wanted to share more on how we declutter! Click here to watch my declutter workshop. This workshop was recorded in early March before COVID-19 was considered a global pandemic, but this three-step decluttering process is the strategy I use in our home. Decluttering can be overwhelming. Approach each space with these three steps in mind:
- Minimize – Gather like things together, decreasing their span across your home.
- Eliminate – Consolidate, donate, or toss anything non-essential.
- Organize – When you put it back, organize it and make it pretty!
