Declutter Your Home Fast: Our Top Clutter Busters

Do you remember when you first moved into your home?  How spacious and empty it looked, a blank canvas full of possibilities.  Then the clutter came.  And your blank canvas became more crowded and cramped with each passing year.  Where did all that space go?
Did you know, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, 32 percent of people with two-car garages are only able to park one car inside due to clutter?  And the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) says 80 percent of what we keep we never actually use.  Crazy, right?  Well, here are some tips to help you beat these statistics.

Clutter has a way of sneaking up on us, and whether you plan on making it a part of you New Year's resolution or maybe just want to get a beat on spring cleaning, a clutter free home is within reach. Here are four can't miss way to make it a reality.

Getting Started Is Half The Battle 
A cluttered home or garage can seem daunting at first, and even just taking the first step to getting started clearing it might feel terribly overwhelming.  Don't be your own roadblock.  Pick one room, break it up into sections, and work through one section at a time.  This will give you results you can actually see.
Pace yourself while you're at it.  These tips will help you declutter fast, but it's not a race.  Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither was a accumulation of clutter you've built up around your home.  To improve the organization of what goes and what stays, try to keep your items separated into three categories: trash, donate, and keep.
