Betsy Miller of 2B Organized considered all of the challenges she’s witnessed clients struggle with over the past 25 years when designing her new home and barn. She knew she must take into account the usual clutter issues, but the way a family lives, too. Organizing isn’t just about keeping a clean home, it is about having a space that works with and for you. It might seem like a lot to tackle, but you can start your journey to an organized and decluttered home with just a few simple steps.
Don’t feel like you have to go through everything all at once. Start with one small task and complete it before moving on to the next. If you are unsure where to start, 2B Organized’s website has free downloadable guides that are helpful. The first step could be as little as removing all of the trash from your junk drawer.
Miller believes letting go of stuff is always the first step toward an organized home. If your attic or garage isn’t the resting place of stuff you were sure you’d use, your closet probably is. It is difficult to part with belongings, but Betsy recommends being honest about what you truly use, and let the rest go.
