Use the Categorization Method to Get Your Decluttering Done
Okay, enough of my rambling, here's how to declutter via the category method.
First determine the categories of stuff in your home. Then list all the items you have under that category.
Pay attention to the "Own" and "Use" columns. This is the number of these items you own and how many of them you actually use. I'm sure you see by now how helpful this exercise can be for decluttering your home (just get rid of the unused stuff).
One word of warning though before you start- do one category at a time- do one item at a time. This will avoid any confusion and also avoids creating to much of a mess while you're trying to declutter.
