How To Declutter Quickly And Stop Buying Stuff

Well, I’m talking about how to declutter quickly and stop buying stuff today. You know, stuff, we don’t really need. You may remember me talking about my 15-minute timer trick.

How To Declutter Stuff In Your Home Quickly

Well, it’s that time of year when I feel the need to declutter stuff around the house and garage. Again. I actually helped a friend yesterday declutter stuff in her master bedroom closet. I don’t know about you, but if someone will just come and talk to me as I start pulling stuff out of closets, it’s a lot more fun. I had gone to breakfast with her and she mentioned how overwhelming it is to organize closets and cupboards, etc. I told her I would help her, then I went to pick up some zippered bags and called to see when we could get started. I brought my Minute Timer but we didn’t use it. We jumped in and started tossing, recycling, and boxed stuff to sell. I like to clean my house in 15-minute increments because then it makes me work faster as I hear the timer tick.

How To Declutter Bedrooms And Love It

Do you need a little help on how to declutter bedrooms in your home? Someone called me yesterday and mentioned she had seen my declutter post with a Minute Timer to help you clean in 15 minute time periods. Time To Get Organized In 15 Minutes Or Less by Linda. She said it’s overwhelming to think about all the rooms that need to be cleaned and decluttered in her home. Are you like me and you may have let the decluttering slide for a few months or maybe years? Mark is happy with never decluttering, so you may be like him. That’s fine, I’m just OCD with “stuff” in our house the last few years.
