Grab Some Clutter - Organizing Decluttering Hints

I was just doing a cleaning burst yesterday, when I realized something important. Decluttering doesn't ALWAYS involve massive organizing efforts. Sometimes, it's as simple as grabbing a few things here and there that have piled up and dealing with them, instead of letting that pile get even bigger.

I think that we stop noticing clutter around our homes. That pile of old papers due for recycling has been there SO long that it looks part of the decor. Or, that collection of old kitty litter containers becomes a piece of nouveau art. (Haha, if that's the case, I'm a real artiste.)

Today, make an effort to notice where stuff in your home is piling up - and then just deal with a few things at a time. A huge project can seem entirely overwhelming, but dealing with clutter a bit at a time makes it a lot more manageable!
