Divide and Conquer
Dividing up a large task is one of the most basic ways to make de-cluttering your home more bearable.
Most of us, when faced with an enormous amount of work—such as a big house full of stuff—feel reluctant to begin. In fact, because of the enormity of the task at hand, we may put it off indefinitely, allowing clutter to reach unhealthy levels.
But fear not—there is a way out!
Don’t think about de-cluttering your entire home at once. Instead, try this: section off one room of your home. Now, section off one area of that room. That’s your task for the day.
Sounds a lot better, doesn’t it?
Even better, if you have a few helping hands, you can assign different parts of a room to different people, and none of you will have to bear the burden of the entire job.
Best of all, you don’t need hours to do this. You need only an hour or so to clean a single room, or a part of a room. If you’re easily overwhelmed or simply don’t have the time, divide and conquer your clutter for a better home.
