4 Great Tips 
       for De-cluttering Your Home
  1. An ordered home brings inner calm. Find serenity in your home by following the “one in, two out” rule – whenever you bring in an item, get rid of two.
  2. One step at a time. Start by tackling one room in your house. Spending time in that room once you have finished will feel so good, it will motivate you to do another!
  3. One person’s junk is another’s treasure. It’s easier to get rid of things when you know that you’ll be giving them to someone who can use them – donate to a charity.
  4. Enlist your friends and family. Schedule a de-cluttering weekend and and take turns helping each other. The more hands pitching in, the better. Get boxes and trash bags ready, and plan a trip to a charity to drop off donated items.
Thinking about selling your home? De-cluttering is an essential part of your preparation – it can attract more buyers and help you get the best price.
