Hello and welcome back to Declutter Fast

BY THE WAY: Did you know that I write a long-running email column for women?

And men are listening in too - especially the ones who want to understand women!

It's called "With Love" and it's all about your love life.

You can sign up for that column at:

With Love Mimi Tanner.

I hope to see you there. If you like this, you might really like that!

Okay, now back to business.

I spent the night in a brand new apartment that I've been getting ready for a family member.

Since this place has just been furnished, and it's not yet lived in....

Right now, it's a "doll house."

Because there are only a few items in the apartment now: a sofa, chair, table...

And no clutter!

It's a doll house - for now at least!

That's how most homes look before people bring in the clutter.

Then people add more and more stuff over the years...

Sooner or later, the clutter builds up and becomes a burden.

We want to be free of the clutter burden!

So why not just start going in reverse?

This is a way to declutter that really works.

As often as possible, start getting rid of items, one by one.

Take a chunk of time and round up the usual suspects... and donate them.

Or just be bold and trash as much as you can. I promise not to tell anyone.

Don't look back!

You'll lighten your burden.

Let go of the stuff that drags you down.

You know the old saying?

"You can't take it with you."

How come nobody actually believes that??

You can't control what ultimately happens to anything you own.

Sooner or later, it will be out of your hands.

THEN, someone else will not see the value in your stuff...

Or someone else will be stressed out dealing with all the stuff and will feel...


But I know, you just don't know what to do with This or That - the decisions are killing you.

Meanwhile, you're spending your valuable time thinking about stuff instead of living and enjoying it.

So why not let go and stop worrying about the stuff? Just let it go!

When you declutter by going in REVERSE, you start getting rid of your items instead of adding on more.

Pretty soon you'll see a big difference.

Clutter is one of life's challenges, but only until you get it controlled.

Then it gets easier and easier!

You can get there little by little, or quickly.

Whatever approach you take, the important thing is to do what works for you.

I want decluttering to be as easy for you as possible, because I know how overwhelming it can be.

Just keep in mind that you will indeed reach your goal as long as you continue making small efforts.

Declutter Fast has helped thousands of people to "cut to the chase" of their clutter and get the decluttering ball rolling.

P.S. From readers:

Mimi, I had a nice house at one time; then my hoarding mother started downsizing and gave lots to me.

Her instructions were to keep everything. Guilt immobilized me. I am now saying to myself, "It's my life. How do I want to live it?"

Life is short. I need to live it in happiness. I want to have my home as a gathering place for fun again.

My children are embarrassed and go to their friends' homes. I used to be a stopping place for my friends.

I just got 2 items free-cycled. I got half the living room cleared.

I will be getting rid of anything that doesn't make me relax and give me a calm, peaceful place again.

From Mimi:

What a great way to put this - get rid of anything that doesn't make you relax and give you a calm, peaceful place! I wish you the best in your decluttering project!

And thanks for sharing this great reminder: "It's my life. How do I want to live it?"
