The first step in winning the Clutter War is to de-bug your own mind! Most of us don't recognize clutter when it falls out of the closet onto our heads, so how in the world will we conquer it? Let's start by defining what clutter is. Clutter is anything in your home:
* That is out of place.
* That is broken.
* That you have not used or worn in more than a year.
* That you dislike.
Now don't panic. I won't be telling you to throw everything away that falls within the above definition of clutter. BUT, once you get a clear picture in your head of what constitutes clutter you will be better able to deal with it! In the next installment we still start in one small place to give you some practice in sorting through all that clutter.
