Crash Course in de-cluttering with five S-words

Recently I wrote about how important it is to clean up regularly…not only at home but especially in your work space. As I know how hard it is for horders and messies I have developed this quick course with five S-words. Here is my quick guide for de-cluttering:

  • Systemize: Create an overview and make a plan. Decide on color-codes, three box system and buy a laminator.
  • Start: Start with the smallest possible entity and work on it for only half an hour.
  • Sort: If you clean out drawers take out all items, then sort them and decide what you would like to throw away. Then throw it away and take the bins outside. Return to the same content and review again. You might want to throw out more. Celebrate again. Clean the empty drawer right away.
  • Space : Create an empty space between fuller spaces. See what happens. Review the way you work with space. Share work space to keep it clean and tidy.
  • Standardize: Use same colors and basics your wardrobe. Reduce the amount of handbags and shoes you are using. Donate them if you don’t want to throw them away.

I would be interested in coaching you if you have an issue with clutter. Let me know if you are interested in a first conversation.
