The following are simple steps when trying to declutter your home.

  1. Start by removing trash.
  2. Start organizing drawers and closets, one at time.
  3. Sort items and decide what to keep, donate or toss.
  4. Find a home for all items that you want to keep, such as bowl or hook for your keys and/or wallet.
  5. Keep similar items together so you know where they are and can find them easily.
  6. When you purchase something new you should try to toss something out to make room for the new item.
  7. Ask your family which items they would like to inherit instead of keeping heirlooms that they may not want.
  8. Don’t get overwhelmed with organizing. Take your time and don’t try to do it all at once.
