We make a plan to declutter. We go through the decluttering.

But then what?
It comes back. Maybe it takes a little time, but it always seems to come back.
So how do we deal with clutter? What is the best way to start decluttering?
And, after we clear the clutter – how do we keep our homes clutter free?

Decluttering Made Easy
It’s hard to know where to start decluttering. It can also be hard to find the motivation to declutter.
When you make a plan, sometimes you just don’t want to stick to it.
That’s because your plan might have overwhelmed you even more, or maybe life got in the way and prevented it from happening.
That’s where the workbook comes in!

A workflow worksheet to help you make a plan, including space to reflect and make notes.
Two versions, to help you write a main goal and then break it down into big tasks and small tasks. The second version helps you break a goal down into priority tasks, and other tasks.
