    Hi 👋🏻 I’m new from California. I was inspired by this. I’ve always been very organized at work (medical field) and with my girls sports/dance/school life. But on a personal level I just didn’t have the time or energy, or so I thought. I spent too much time keeping everyone on track, clean and fed, and kept the house clean enough. Now retired I realize I can do it better, starting with ME. Thank you for the inspiration

      Excellent Video clip! Excuse me for chiming in, I would love your thoughts. Have you thought about - Mahorrla Control Clutter Method (should be on google have a look)? It is a good exclusive product for decluttering your home without the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my friend got astronomical success with it.

    I realized that i have so much stuff. I donated 10 garage bags and still have alot of stuff that i need to go through 😭
    I'm lucky that i started doing this last year because i think i realized i was almost about to become a horder like my grandma.
    For me that's not healthy.
    Plus I'm finally moving out of my parents place and moving with my boyfriend up north to Washington with his stuff. So i have a year to get ride of alot of things. I honestly feel great getting ride of stuff.
    I remember filling up two garbage bags full of clothing and things for the victims of the fire in paradise city last year.

    Great video! Just beware of what Warren Buffet calls sucking your thumb syndrome or what other people call the stickability factor. If there is something that you can do right now don't put it on a list, do it right now. You can create what scientists call cognitive overload. Benjamin Franklin said "don't put off till tomorrow which you can do today." I would always make these lists of things I could have just gotten done at that moment then would look at the list wondering what to do... Okay, off to declutter! Thanks for the video, cheers!

    I think the only declutter I'm good at is clothes. I live in a place where seasons aren't a thing like you need I thicker coat to get through "winter" so every 6 months I try stuff on, evaluate what I look like, get rid of things that dont fit or look funky, and mainly end up keeping basics like basic tees and Jean's a few shorts and a couple dresses. I can lift my whole wardrobe with two hands 👌 plus going through every 6 months let's me see the style in really enjoy and replace things that dont suit me with clothes that actually make me happy.
    I'm so bad with sentimental items. Not clothes but like, physical things like cards stuffed animals trinkets books. This week that's what I've started tackling. I've learned it's time for me to be brutal with it. I'm now 22, these things used to make me happy when I was young but now I cling to it from guilt and nothing more.
    Also I wanted to say to anyone just starting out, it will be hard, you will slip up and get messy from time to time. That's ok. Just get yourself back up, and start again. It takes time to form a habit and change how you keep your space. Just keep going and dont give up! You can do it! Just be patient! ❤

    why do people say "if you haven worn something in six months, throw it out"? I don't wear winter things in summer.
    I don't even wear things from one year to the next, but fashion (and my size) is always changing.. so some things I pack away for later. and later does come! by the time I fit back into something. its back in fashion!
    ... OK, my version of it ; )

      lisa sommerlad obviously you’re not going to wear winter clothes in summer. But if you have winter clothes which you haven’t wore in the past winter you need to get rid of it
