If you've tried decluttering in the past only to find yourself back at square one, it's possible you skipped the first step. So let's talk about exactly what to do before decluttering so you can start on the right foot.
Trust me, I know what it's like (because I've been there many, many times) – you dive into a decluttering project full of energy and enthusiasm, but then somewhere along the way you start to backslide.
Usually, it's because you didn't have a plan in place for how to tackle your clutter.
As the saying goes, fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
That's why day 1 of the #ClutterFreeIn5 challenge is all about the things you need to do BEFORE you begin.
Missed the 'Clutter Free In 5' memo and want to find out what it's all about? There's an intro post:
