Depending on where you are in the great decluttering and organising spectrum there are many different tools you can use to get into the right frame of mind to declutter.
From a sign saying JUST DO IT to using a journal with prompts, stopping at to do lists, ta da lists or get it done strategies on the way.
Which one is right for you?
How do you view your clutter?

I need to put aside some time for this
This is a weekend project
I have no idea where to begin
1 A quick declutter and I'm done
You probably just need a JUST DO IT sign and a spot of motivation! Can you get someone to help? Put on some fast, upbeat tunes - gather together some boxes, label them - PUT BACK, DONATE,RETURN TO PROPER HOME, RECYCLE/THROW, UNSURE. And away you go!
2 I need to put aside some time for this
This will need to be decided ahead of time - try a TO-DO LIST. What area will you work on? How long do you think it will take - double this figure (!), when can you fit this in? What do you need to have on hand before you start? Then refer to No.1 above. And away you go!
