How do you slowly declutter?
The best way to slowly declutter is to do a little each day. You can even use my 31 Days of 10-minute Decluttering Tasks Challenge to help. If you commit to decluttering 10 – 30 minutes every day, you’ll slowly work your way through an entire decluttering projects.
It’s most important to be consistent, so commit to an amount of time that you can realistically accomplish each day. You’ll also find that as your space begins to be less cluttered, you’ll be motivated to work for longer periods of time or more frequently.
Once you have decluttered and organized, then commit to 20 – 30 minutes each week to declutter to maintain your organized space and home.
