We found these tips from the Becoming Minimalist Blog excellent recommendations to help you get an handle on the clutter (http://www.becomingminimalist.com/creative-ways-to-declutter/)
- Take five minutes a day: Just do ONE thing around you to pick up
- Give away one item per day: this can transform your space if you decide to toss or give away one thing a day.
- Fill one trash bag: grab a bag and fill it. It might be trash or it might be a great donation to a local thrift shop.
- Try the hanger experiment: once you wear an item, turn the hanger around. After a few months you will really have a good idea what you actually wear and what you can donate.
- Lists: create a list of where in your home you want to clean up. Then do one item on the list and stop. Slow and steady.
- the 12-12-12 challenge: find 12 things to give away, 12 to toss and 12 to return to their proper place.
