Tip 3: Keep your eyes on the prize

Remove distractions as much as possible. Don’t try to clean, don’t try to organize, just focus on decluttering. It’s a lot easier to do it with what’s left after you declutter.

Tip 4: Donate more

You can donate clothes that are still in good condition and recycle the rest.

Tip 5: Use the 80/20 rule

This is also known as the Pareto principle. It states that 80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts. One way to use this principle is by tacking the high-impact areas in your home. This might mean clearing the visual clutter off of flat surfaces. Another is your wardrobe. Are you only using 20% percent of it most of the time? Start letting go of the others you no longer use. If you ask yourself if you should keep it, then you probably should declutter it. If it’s not a clear yes, then it’s a no.

Tip 6: Be ruthless

Declutter the items that you haven’t used for years. Surround yourself with the things you only love and enjoy using.

Tip 7: Clutter drop zones

Create clutter drop zones. These are designated places where you can easily and quickly drop clutter off when you find them lying around.
