I know many who’ve wanted to declutter their homes, but put it off for years. One major reason for putting it off is they’re overwhelmed by the project. They don’t know where to start.
Another reason is a lack of leverage. If there isn’t a big enough reason to declutter your home, it’s easy to be sidetracked by other “more important” things.
If you are willing to put a little extra time in, you can turn that clutter into your next weekend getaway through the use of garage sales, consignment shops and eBay. For me, a two-day paid vacation offers plenty of incentive!
As for being overwhelmed by the project, follow the suggestion of Flylady and don’t try to do it all at once. I’m a big fan of her process of cleaning and decluttering in 15 minute increments.
Make it as fun as possible. Pull your hair back, put on your “cleaning clothes”, turn up the music and get started.
Even it if takes a few weeks or even months to get through your house, in a few weeks or months you will be done!
