Sharing is caring!

When it comes to decluttering, don’t let the fear of not knowing where to start to overwhelm you! After all, we all want to make our lives easier–not harder. But by breaking it down in small chunks, you can declutter in short bursts rather than spending an entire day cleaning out the garage. Because who has time for that?!

I feel like the organizing bug happens every time the season’s change. In our home, it’s often like a purge and then time to clean mode. If I don’t start to clear out some extra items, I know that I will start to feel stressed. Arriving home to our normal household items, plus holiday decor on top, and then adding in general life busy-ness is simply too much.

Anyone else? 

Let’s make decluttering to make our lives easier right now!
