“Visualize this thing you want. See it, feel it, believe in it. Make a mental blueprint and begin.”

-Robert Collier

Designate a home for everything

Everything you have, no matter what it is, should have a designated home.

Put things away immediately after using them

The sooner things are put back in their designated home, the less likely they are to end up lost or become clutter

Follow the “one in, one out” rule

When you get something new, whether it be an article of clothing, children’s toy, household item, etc., get rid of something that is used up or out dated.

Decide to decide

Make decisions instead of putting them off and letting them pile up.

Take baby steps

The big picture can be overwhelming, so divide into baby steps. For instance, instead of tackling your entire home office – start with just clearing off the top of your desk.

Rather than perfection aim for progress

Any small step toward completion is an accomplishment

Focus on the dream not the effort

Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Dream for a moment about how wonderful your life is going to be when your environment is clutter-free and organized.
