Organizing clutter

Dear Kathi,

Help! My house is piled so high with clutter that I can barely get through the front door!

Josh, Carlsbad

Dear Josh,

Start with the most visible piles in your front entranceway. Dedicate 15 minutes every day to making one pile disappear.
To make a pile disappear, you take each item in the pile and either put it back where it belongs, throw it away, or into your car to speed it on it’s way to a new home.

As the piles decrease you will feel better and generate a sense of personal mastery. Once you’ve knocked off a few small piles, you will begin to see results larger than the piles themselves.
You will also be paving the way to successfully tackling more challenging jobs. Please keep me posted on your progress.
