Less is more when Decluttering

Often times when thinking about areas in your home that need attention and organization, people become overwhelmed because they think of the big projects, like the basement, the attic or the playroom. If you take smaller “bites”, you’ll be less overwhelmed and more successful.

Here’s a list of 50 areas to declutter. Most should take 20-30 minutes. Print it out and get started. Decide if you are going to tackle one task per day or one task per week and get it done! Don’t forget to schedule donation pick up for those items that haven’t been used or worn in over a year. Find next available donation pick up in your area at www.GoodDonor.org. Happy organizing!
