Taking inventory can help show how little we actually use on a daily basis. See something on a shelf you haven't used in months? Do you have duplicates of items like books or kitchen utensils? Sell it or donate it to charity! Those things will benefit someone else’s life by being used.


Make a List of Your Possessions

Begin with one item at a time, and discuss with your family or roommates which items should stay and which should go. With a little bit of elbow grease, together you can relieve the mountains of stress that a messy environment can bring.

Before you get started, decide your overall goals for decluttering. Is it to get more organized, or are you wanting to embrace a more minimalist life? Are you needing more space to work from home, or is an older parent coming to live with you? Having a better idea of why you want to declutter can keep you motivated during the process.

First, pick one room, and focus on that room until it is clear. If it’s your bathroom, don’t overwhelm yourself with a whole room. Instead treat each drawer, toiletry bag and shelf as an individual tasks. Finishing one space at a time will give you little victories to cheer you on until the room is completely organized.

Assess the desk and counter spaces in your home. While stacking bills, letters and magazines in a pile can clear off a spot temporarily, it's best to file them in their proper place to look at later.

As you move things around, valuable desks space can open up, and a chaotic mess can slowly transform into an organized and efficient space.
