Living in a messy home is stressful and inefficient. But how many times do we buy the latest and greatest organizing system, only to fail in our attempts to use it? The problem most likely isn’t our lack of ability, but merely the overabundance of stuff cluttering our lives.
Rather than tackling all this extra stuff with the intent to organize it, Dana K. White of A Slob Comes Clean provides the steps needed to declutter, making organization so much easier. White asks two simple questions designed to determine if an item is useful or valuable, and where it belongs if it passes both tests. If it doesn’t, it’s trashed or donated. These questions are applied to each room in the house, as she guides us through the decluttering process. Beginning with our most visible places, we tackle each spot, one at a time, making progress as we go.
Decluttering at the Speed of Life doesn’t asks that we make a huge mess while we declutter. We can grab a few moments as we have time, maybe clearing off a kitchen counter or dining room table as we go. But as we continue to follow these steps, we’re guaranteed to have a neater home. I highly recommend this wonderful resource.
