One evening set aside some time to create a to-do list. Break the tasks into bite size bits that can be done in 15-30 min. Write down the things that need to be done and each morning or night, do just one of these tasks or as many as you have time for. Just continue in this fashion until you have rid yourself of the clutter. Another piece of this plan is to not create any MORE clutter. Put your things away before the end of each day. A good way to help yourself is to designate space as you create your to-do list , so that you won’t get frustrated and stop the process. As you begin to succeed with getting rid of the clutter, the feeling of accomplishment should help to motivate you to stay motivated.
Remove anything that you don’t use.
Find furniture that doubles as storage.
Only have 1–3 pieces of décor per surface.
Try mixing big, medium, and small pieces of décor to even out the space.
Bottom line, if it’s not supposed to be in the room, take it out or stow it out of sight.
Between the seasons is my biggest challenge. Sometimes Christmas still pops it’s head at Easter 😉
As for maintaining the low clutter doing a little bit each day keeps down on the mess!
I hope this helped you 🙂
