4-Step Process to Organize Any Pile of Clutter

Need a declutter-plan? Here are some key steps for making a plan to organize the piles of clutter in your life:

Step 1: Make a declutter-plan. Schedule time and gather your supplies.

First of all, block out a specific amount of time you think you can handle for your first initial sort. For example: a standard clothes closet: 2 hours; a kitchen pantry: 1.5 hours; a garage: 4 hours.

Because setting a realistic and specific goal before you start will help improve your odds of success. Do you have time to finish the whole room? Can you reach everything on the top shelf without the ladder you don’t currently have? Do you need to ask for help or can you command this mission solo?
