The old adage about “How to eat an elephant?” definitely gives insight into how to attack large decluttering projects. I find that the best way to declutter is to break my task down to a small area within an area.
Don’t tackle the whole garage or kitchen all at once. Just focus on one drawer or cabinet. This makes the project less overwhelming and much more manageable. Set your watch or timer for the amount of time you have that day. When the time’s up you’ll have the satisfaction of seeing that one part of the chaos is under control.
Repeat this technique until the entire project is finished.
