Are you like me... when there's  too much clutter around it also seems to clutter your brain?  Whenever I clean out my closets, pantry, office, storage room, etc. I end up feeling much lighter mentally and my energy level soars. But I also know that for many the process of decluttering and throwing things out can be challenging, both in terms of making the time to do so and often just in terms of throwing something out. (I have a brother who is congenitally incapable of throwing anything out.) Decluttering and organizing isn't only for when you are getting ready to sell your home.

 

We are about to start the second week of 2018 and the first flurry of New Year's resolution-making is over.  I know that lots of people have resolved to be more organized in 2018. So if you're one who resolved to be more organized in 2018, here are three great hacks to help you on your way to organizing:

 

 

Use one or use all... but if you follow at least some of these suggestions faithfully, by the time 2019 rolls around, you'll be well on your way to starting next year much more organized organized and decluttered!

Nina, Charlene and I constantly purge whatever is clutter and even the clutter in our minds.

 You are singing my song, Nina. I am ruthless when it comes to throwing away crap and donating stuff. My husband, on the other hand, is not. Yesterday he told me a gaming company back east somewhere offered him $600 for his old gaming console that collected dust, which is not good because now he thinks it's not crap if he keeps long enough; it becomes an antique. He also disposed of his 13-inch TV and got rid of 5 computers. Now he just needs to purge the other 95% of crap he's hoarding.

Nina, I find that clutter or too much stuff piling up has a numbing or paralyzing effect. It's like you can't think or move.

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents ~ hi Elizabeth.... I am forever organizing and purging. Fortunately my husband is not a "saver." (Except for certain books.) We've moved so many times neither of us has the patience to pack, unpack, find a home for stuff we don't use.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel ~ hi Alexandra and Ron... I seem to mostly know people who don't have much clutter and are organized... and then I showed a home today (not cheap) where every room looked almost like that room in my featured picture. Just don't know how people live that way.

Nina,  I am not able to focus or work well without a clean and organized environment. Clutter is not my thing.  I need quiet to work as well.

Love these ideas, Nina. It becomes much easier if you don’t try to do it all at one. We still have work to do on our garage, and I have been cleaning up my office.

Jeff Dowler ~ good morning, Jeff. Too many people try to do too much all at once and then give up. Having been sick the week after Christmas I missed my annual office clean out week and will now be scrambling this month.
