For your first project, spend this week straightening up your living zones:

  1. Put away EVERYTHING that already has a designated home.
  2. Grab a laundry basket and pile in any items that belong in another room. When the basket is full put the items away!
  3. Grab another laundry basket (or 2 or 3) and fill it with items that are “homeless” and you just don’t know what to do with them. Put them aside, we’ll get back to them!
  4. Find a box and fill it with items to donate or to sell.
  5. Have plenty of trash bags handy for items that need to be disposed.
  6. After your basic straightening is completed, go through any drawers of furniture that have become clutter magnets. Skip over drawers of toys, games, or media items–we’ll get to them in the next few weeks. Concentrate on “junk drawers” and papers.
  7. Empty your “homeless” basket, finding appropriate homes for each item.
  8. Repeat the above in as many of your living spaces as possible.

I love the laundry basket idea — I have several I bought at the dollar store to use just for sorting projects like this!
