Decluttering is a skill that you learn with practice, just like any skill. And just like other skills, there are many little questions and problems you need answered and solved as you get started.
Those of you taking the Clutterfat Challenge this month are facing these problems, and I’m here to help.
This post is a quickstart guide to decluttering — the most common questions answered. Also see last week’s Clutterfat Challenge post: How to Tackle Your Clutter.
1. Where do I start?
2. How do I deal with the piles of mail and magazines? How do I handle paper cluttter?
3. What do I do if my family is the clutter problem?
4. I tend to keep things just in case I might need them again.
5. How do I deal with things that have a sentimental value, that bring back memories/feelings about a time you might not think about without a reminder.
6. I want to clean my clutter but sometimes I’m just too lazy to deal with it.
7. My biggest issue is getting rid of things that where given as a present by people I care about.
9. I don’t have time to keep things clean.
10. Making time to declutter and follow through with disposal is tough.
