Keeping up with accumulated clutter is one of the main areas of challenge during this pandemic. With so many people at home for longer periods of time, getting a handle on this is so important!
Find a basket, box, or bag that is portable enough to carry easily.
Pick one room and do a clutter sweep! For example you can start with your living room.
Everything that's in the wrong place or needs to be thrown away should go in. Make sure you look around all the nooks & crannies that can collect clutter such as: under and around coffee and side tables, under the sofa and chairs, any drawers or cubbies, bookcases & shelves, corners, and by the TV.
Because the living room is so heavily used you'll find everything from unused decor, exercise equipment, marker, crayons, pens, blankets & pillows, items from the bathroom, bedroom closet items like shoes and clothes, unused technology, games & DVD's, food and dishes, papers, mail, and magazines, and toys.
After you've finished the room, look at the contents of the receptacle and place them in piles to decide what you want to do with them.
Don't dawdle! Set a timer for 10-15 minutes of de-cluttering with an added 5-10 for the organizing and re-homing at the end. This may seem fast, but, the idea is to quickly sweep the area so you don't get hung up on one area or get bogged down by a project that will take more time.
