Decluttering never ends.
While my daily checklist is the make-or-break issue in my deslobification process, decluttering makes real progress possible. A daily pick-up can only help so much when there’s just . . . too . . . much . . . stuff.
As I’ve decluttered (and decluttered . . . and decluttered some more), I’ve found strategies that work well for my Slob Brain.

My two decluttering questions keep me focused. No big list of things to think about. There is just too much stuff, and too little attention-span on my part to do that much analyzing.
Decluttering supplies for sorting clutter? I have some different-than-what-the-experts-say thoughts on that.
When I stand in the doorway of an out-of-control room and feel overwhelmed, I’ve learned to do the easy things first.
I’ve had to accept that other people’s memories are not my responsibility.
I’ve learned that establishing limits is key.
I have finally realized that contrary to my natural slob-inclination to declutter a closet that no one ever sees . . . it’s better to prioritize decluttering projects by visibility.
And most of all, I’ve realized that it is okay (and home-changing) to JUST declutter. To stop worrying about getting organized and just declutter.
And finally, re-decluttering is a thing. And it’s okay.

I’m excited about my new e-book: Drowning in Clutter? (Don’t Grab a Floatie . . . Drain the Ocean!)
