Stay on Task with This Decluttering Strategy

By Real Simple Magazine Jun 28, 2012 4:18PM
One of the hardest things about tackling an organizing project is staying on task. But following this decluttering strategy will help you maintain your focus and get the project done.Wherever you’re organizing (whether your closet, desk, or kid’s room), start in the upper left-hand corner and work your way down and to the right. That way, you won’t be jumping around from mess to mess getting distracted along the way. You’ll also be able to see your progress by looking up and to the left. It’s a great way to stay motivated and on task.

I don't ever have to de-clutter because I always stay organized.  As a retired teacher and administrator I learned to be organized on my job.  It transsferred over into our (my husbands and my) home.
