Decluttering can be overwhelming. My strategy? Approach each space with these 3 steps in mind:
Gather like things together to decrease the span across your home. This allows you to see the “stuff” you have to store as well as the available closets, drawers, and cabinets you have to store it all in. Store like things together; everything will have its own place which makes staying organized easier!
Consolidate, donate, or toss anything non-essential. This is where you will use the trash bags, recycling containers, and storage bins. Create piles so you can easily see what needs to be donated or recycled.
When you put it back, organize it and make it pretty! This is the fun part. Organize as you put everything back in place (after wiping down surfaces and clearing out the trash). Use cute bins and labels, like these adorable stickers, to make it look cute! We’re naturally more likely to keep things organized if it looks beautiful.
