Everyone brings clutter into their home. No one is immune to it. It is what you DO, what action you take, with clutter that either keeps it to a minimum or lets it become overwhelming. At its most basic, clutter is the result of unmade decisions. The trick is to create boundaries and rules to follow. These things (boundaries and rules) help you deal with clutter more effectively.
Clutter Control Services & Advice
What’s Wrong With Clutter?
Clutter distracts you. Even though it is just stuff, clutter crowds your mind with reminders to do something about it. Clutter creates that overwhelming and stressful feeling. It can also be dangerous. When piles of clutter spill over into walkways in your home it becomes a tripping hazard.
When Clutter Is A Problem, Where To Begin
You have two choices. You can begin with something easy or with the place in your home that bothers you the most. No matter where you decide to begin decluttering, always start small. By that I mean one drawer, one shelf, or one small pile. Give yourself success with something small and you’ll be able to do more.

How To Stop Hoarding
What often looks like hoarding may not actually be hoarding. A home can become filled with things because of a variety of things like life events, a lack of organizing skills, over-collecting, or a very busy life. Whatever the reason, you now have an abundance of things you don’t know what to do with. You want to organize but you have no space. You want to make decisions about what stays and what leaves your home but don’t know where to begin. It is overwhelming so you do nothing. Let’s work together so you no longer feel like you are living in a hoarded-up home.

Tip From Dolores The Busy Lady
Let’s say that every morning while the coffee is brewing, you take five minutes and tidy the family room. You bring any dishes, glasses, or trash left over from the day before to the kitchen. After breakfast, you do those dishes along with those from your breakfast. This is a simple way to do a little clutter control in those two rooms.
