TrustDale Tip of the Day: *Five-Minute Decluttering Tips to Start Conquering Your Mess

We don't need to increase our goods nearly as much as we need to scale down our wants. Not wanting something is as good as possessing it." - Donald Horban
  1. Pick up 5 things, and find places for them. These should be things that you actually use, but that you just seem to put anywhere, because they don't have good places. If you don't know exactly where things belong, you have to designate a good spot. Take a minute to think it through - where would be a good spot? Then always put those things in those spots when you're done using them. Do this for everything in your home, a few things at a time.
  2. Spend a few minutes visualizing the room. When I'm decluttering, I like to take a moment to take a look at a room, and think about how I want it to look. What are the most essential pieces of furniture? What doesn't belong in the room but has just gravitated there? What is on the floor (hint: only furniture and rugs belong there) and what is on the other flat surfaces? Once I've visualized how the room will look uncluttered, and figured out what is essential, I get rid of the rest.
  3. Create a "maybe" box. Sometimes when you're going through a pile of stuff, you know exactly what to keep (the stuff you love and use) and what to trash or donate. But then there's the stuff you don't use, but think you might want it or need it someday. You can't bear to get rid of that stuff! So create a "maybe" box, and put this stuff there. Then store the box somewhere hidden, out of the way. Put a note on your calendar six months from now to look in the box. Then pull it out, six months later, and see if it's anything you really needed. Usually, you can just dump the whole box, because you never needed that stuff.
