WHY DO I NEED TO DECLUTTER?

The aim of any decluttering is to get rid of anything that doesn't belong in the space/schedule/system that you're tackling.

Getting rid of things you don't need will free up time, energy, money and LOADS more for you - you can't afford NOT to really!

HOW DO I DECLUTTER?

The aim of any decluttering is to get rid of anything that doesn't belong in the space/schedule/system that you're tackling.

Just as with organising, the key to decluttering is to not procrastinate – it will take you forever if you keep going back to items that you can’t make your mind up about – therefore the main thing to remember is to ONLY TOUCH THINGS ONCE.

If you don’t you will only be moving the clutter to another part of the space, and you will have the same problem all over again and achieve nothing after spending all the time sorting – this will leave you very disillusioned with the process.

And talking about the Decluttering Process - I have created a system that will help you declutter more easily - based around the word D.E.C.L.U.T.T.E.R.

WHERE DO I START?​

There are a LOT of differing opinions on where you should start with decluttering - but really it all boils down to how cluttered you are in the first place.

If you need to tackle most areas, then a quick declutter of more obvious items will thin things out nicely - so you can see things a little more clearly.

And you're in luck - I have a FREE DECLUTTER CHALLENGE you can take right now to get the ball rolling.

The other option is to go through your home more thoroughly straight away (perfect if you're wanting to get things straight but haven't got an overwhelming amount of clutter to deal with). 

I have helped countless clients to declutter using my methods - and have written everything down in my Clutter Book. You get all the info and tips you need, plus a workbook that feels like I'm with you every step of the way: -
