You A Liar ?

How many times have you told your friends and relatives that we will clear out, or clean up the mess?

Did you mean it?

Were you really going to start to de clutter or were you just trying to get the family off your back?

I know. You meant it at the time.

Well , let me tell you something.  Its okay.

Don’t beat yourself up.

Sometimes our  “good intentions” have to be taken into account. If your serious lets get started .


Here are a few tips on getting started if you really serious:

1.   Keep it to yourself. Telling anyone will only put you under more pressure, and that’s something  you don’t need.

2.  Now you have to chose a day on which you will start. Gather a few empty boxes or bins.

Mark them …….Trash- it……Love-it………Donate-it.

3.  Prepare yourself for some misgivings. That’s are attached to these things and its going to be difficult.

4.  Keep in mind that  de cluttering takes time. Don’t start too big or you will discourage yourself.

Okay, so now you are ready to begin…

Get a kitchen timer and set it for 15 minutes. (you can use the oven timer as well)

When the timer goes off you must STOP. That’s it for today.

You don’t want to overwhelm yourself.


Remember this is a process and there is no rush. Just as it took time to get into the chaos it will take time to get out of it.

If you find yourself in need of help , its as easy as sending me an email……


Now you are ready to begin.

Do NOT pick up anything.  Yes, that’s what I said.  I REPEAT…..Do Not Pick Up The Object.

LOOK at the object and decide whether of not you absolutely love it, hate it or are willing to part with it.

Once you make that decision pick up the object and place it in the corresponding box.

REMEMBER….15 MINUTES THEN STOP !  Do not push yourself to go past the 15 mark. At that point your level of anxiety may be high. Its important that you NOT try to do too much at a time.

Let me know how you do.


Lets talk about your goals, desires and what you want as an outcome.
