How to Declutter Quickly
Start by quickly removing all the trash. Carry a trash bag with you and move quickly.
This includes actual trash.
Take any items you can readily see that belong in a different area and put them away.If there are many items, create groups for each area that items need to be relocated to and then make one trip to relocate them.
Select items you can readily see and immediately know you can donate.
Have a box or large bag already marked as “donate” and place items in the box.
Schedule a time to drop those donate items off in the next 5 days. Don’t let it become a box of clutter in your home.
Begin grouping like items together.
Group all similar items together.
This allows you to see how many of each you have. You can then decide how many you really need and declutter the extras.
Consider how much space you have when you determine how many you really need.
Step back and reassess. Is there anything else you can remove from the space?
