For some people, the process of decluttering is energizing, freeing and downright enjoyable. This is not a blog post for those people.

If the thought of decluttering makes your heart pound, your palms sweat and your teeth clench, keep reading for some easy ways to make the process less painful.

Focus On the Worst Spot First

You already know where this is. As soon as you read “the worst spot,” a vision of it popped into your head. Maybe it’s the kitchen counter, or your bedroom closet. It could be a single drawer or an entire corner of your garage (or more!).

Wherever this spot it, concentrate on it first. Start by tossing out trash, then return any objects that should be somewhere else to their rightful place in your home. Finally, straighten up what remains. If it still feels like too much “stuff,” keep reading for additional steps to take.

Get Rid of Extra Stuff

Chances are you have some amount of duplicate items cluttering up your home. And typically, one of these duplicate items gets used more than the others.

Do you have two cleaning products that do the same job? What about kitchen appliances — do you really need a regular toaster and a toaster oven both taking up counter space? How about your clothes — how many grey sweaters do you really need? Which one do you wear most?

Part with as many duplicate items as you can. It may not seem like much, but it could really make a dent in the amount of clutter throughout your home.

Tackle One Spot at a Time

You already tackled the worst spot in the house, now it is time to move forward with the rest. It can be overwhelming to imagine decluttering your entire space at once, so just keep focusing on one area at a time. Before you know it, your home will be decluttered and you’ll have more space for the things you love!
