If you’re having trouble addressing your clutter, there are several things you can do:
- You can read articles or books about decluttering – If you’re disciplined and work well on your own, you can read about organizing principles and put them into place yourself
- You can ask a friend to help you – When you feel comfortable setting up systems, but you need someone else to help keep you accountable, ask a friend to come over while you work. Having an accountability partner can help when you struggle with procrastination.
- You can join a clutter support group – There are lots of people who are in the same position as you are, and hearing what works for them might be enough motivation to get you started.
- You can hire a Professional Organizer – You know you need help, but you don’t even know where to start; you’ll benefit from the advice of a professional who can customize processes for your needs.
Whichever method you choose, you want to find people who will provide understanding and encouragement. Don’t despair; whether you prefer to work by yourself or with others, there is a solution that will work for you.
