Five Simple Ways to Unclutter Your Life

OMAHA, NEBRASKA | Sunday, November 20, 2005

As each new year presents a fresh, clean slate, clearing the clutter typically makes the top 10 lists of our most popular resolutions. Yet some of our seemingly colossal projects can mean procrastination and little follow-through. Here are a few tips from the experts at Merry Maids on how to sort through the mess with ease! Take charge by prioritizing your tasks with a checklist. Start with the most important jobs first - those that appear the most disorganized. Then take on smaller ones, step by step. Be realistic. Organize and categorize in a way that caters to your personal habits and work styles. Are you going to buck the system a month from now, or is this really going to help you stay organized? Clear out items that do not belong in the room. Get two plastic bags - one for items to discard and another for items to donate. At least place questionable items in a box to consider discarding later. If you can't remember the last time you used it, chances are, you don't need it anymore. Let it go. Fill the most convenient shelves or areas with items you use frequently. Store aside seasonal items you are not currently using. Clearly mark boxes if it's not immediately obvious what they are. Make an appointment on your calendar to go through your home or office once a week and discard useless items. By doing so, you prevent clutter build-up and your space remains tidy.

So take a deep breath! Begin using these five essential tips to organizing your surroundings, and start enjoying a clutter-free household
