Hello and welcome back to Declutter Fast

Oh, the horror - of horizontal surfaces.

I'm talking about the sheer terror of things piled on the horizontal surfaces of your home.

(Now if all your horizontal surfaces are clear and shining, then you definitely deserve an A-plus.)

And what happens when you run out of countertops? What happens when your desktops and tables all get FULL?

That's the moment you're forced to resort to yet another frightening choice - stacking your stuff on the floor.

The floor is just one more horizontal surface - and a big one.

It's oh-so-tempting to pile things on those horizontal surfaces - tables, countertops, desk tops, tops of furniture!

Things can get piled there and stay there for literally months - sometimes even years.

Horizontal surfaces are your own personal clutter horror show, and the plot just thickens.

The good news is that there is only so much that you can actually put on any one table or desk or chair.

When you finally start venturing through your horizontal horror show, it can be a real trip down memory lane.

"Oh, so HERE are those keys I've been looking for!"

But don't get sidetracked by photographs or even that long-overdue library book you have finally located...

Take each item and put it where it belongs. You don't need to rush this job. Lots of things will get tossed out - and that means fewer things in your home!

Even if you take more than one day working on one horizontal surface, you are making significant progress.

It feels good! And remember to clean the item also - if it's a wood surface, give it a wonderful polishing so it will shine.

You can even accomplish ALL your decluttering with this one project - because MOST of the clutter will be found on horizontal surfaces!

When you declutter your home, it liberates you like nothing else.
