When you want to declutter and organize your home, the first thing you will probably feel is OVERWHELM.

Tips from Professional Organizers - how to declutter and organize your home fast like a Professional Organizer

Organize Your Organization

1. When working on decluttering and organizing a room in your home, be sure to take multiple boxes or bags with you.

Professional organizers use 5 separate boxes.

– One for trash
– One for things to donate
– One for things that belong in another room
– One for things to give to a family member or friend
– One box for your “think it over” items.

What are “think it over” items?

Those are the things that you’re not quite sure what to do with at the moment.

Professional organizers will have you put those “not sure” items all in one box and then put that box away.

If you don’t need and/or look for anything in that box after a few months, you don’t need that stuff.

Makes sense, right?

The Best Time To Declutter

2. Procrastination is NOT your friend.

For example, in our house, dirty dishes are THE thing that build up and at times I don’t really even remember when they were used.

If each time a plate or dish was dirtied it was put right into the dishwasher instead of just piled in the sink, keeping the kitchen clean and clutter-free would be SO much easier.

Know The Rules

3. Make your decluttering rules BEFORE you start.

For example, tell yourself that if you come across anything that is broken, stained, or in any sort of disrepair, that you ARE going to throw it away.

And above all…

Do NOT make one of these decluttering MISTAKES!

Setting your own boundaries BEFORE you start will actually make the decluttering process easier and faster.

4. The first step is the most important step – get rid of the junk and unwanted stuff FIRST.

My House Was a MESS!
And my anxiety was through the roof!

I needed a plan to get it together - it was all pushing me over the edge.

Thing is - we LIVE here... I never had the fantasy that my home would ever look "Pinterest perfect".

I simply wanted more control, less clutter and much less anxiety.

I finally found something that worked for ME.
  • My house is now easier to clean - I can now clean it in minutes, instead of hours.
  • I can now actually FIND the things I'm looking for.
  • I learned some simple decluttering systems that make me much more efficient every day - and I'm more relaxed and less overwhelmed all the time (finally)
  • My house now looks pretty darn good almost all the time.
  • Best of all - I no longer stress about guests unexpectedly showing up.
Turns out, it was so much easier to do than I ever expected.

This is how I did it.
