Have a plan to tackle the clutter
It’s all about having a plan. And, the more basic the plan, the more likely you are to complete it. Knowing specific decluttering tasks ahead of time means you will have more time to actually get your home looking beautiful just in time for spring.
Make a commitment to getting on top of the clutter – one step at a time
Just for the month of March, make a commitment to complete a new decluttering task done each day. This is exactly why I created this super cute decluttering calendar that you can print off. Go HERE to grab yours, print it off, and hang it someplace you will see it every day. Then, make a commitment to just get it done.
Have a clutter strategy
Do you prefer to work on a decluttering project until completion? Or, do you prefer to tackle it in small increments? Knowing which you prefer can make the job much easier to get done. Don’t force yourself to get it all done at once if you just don’t work this way. If you prefer to work for just five minutes at a time, that is totally fine as long as you are still getting it done. Don’t force yourself into a mold that you just don’t fit in. We all want a cleaner home, but you can totally get it done in the way that works best for you.
Work with a timer
Never do I find a timer to be more beneficial than when I am working on decluttering projects. When you work with a timer, you can get the decluttering done so much quicker. Working against the clock will make you race against yourself, and spending less time decluttering means you will have more time for doing the things you really want to do.
Create a declutter schedule
It is helpful to be strategic in planning a bit of time for decluttering into your daily or weekly schedule. Whether you prefer to tackle managing clutter all in one day focusing only on that or if you prefer to clean and get rid of clutter a little each day, create a declutter schedule that is realistic and will fit into your specific daily, weekly, or monthly routines.
Recognize that progress is progress
When it comes to managing clutter, something is better than nothing. And, any progress you make is progress made. Taking care of clutter today means you will have less clutter to take care of tomorrow. Of course clutter will forever need to be maintained, but every time you work on getting rid of the clutter in your home you are getting on your way to having a clutter-free home, a clutter-free mind, and a clutter-free life!
Reward yourself for your hard work
Reward yourself for a job well done. Decide on some type of reward that you can earn at the end of the month for completing these decluttering tasks. Make it something worth working for. And, have the discipline to only reward yourself if the work has actually been done.
