Scary but fixable.
Hello and welcome back to Declutter Fast

You've got clutter when things are piled on the horizontal surfaces of your home.

You've got clutter when things are piled on the floor, too. (That's 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.

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.

P.S. From readers:

Dear Mimi,

I so relate to [the emails from your readers. I am so overwhelmed with clutter that it is messing my life, and I feel has impacted badly on my family's lives.

I clean up when someone is coming, but it only gets dumped in some other room (my office ....can hardy be entered, let alone used.

I have moved three times in the past 10 years, but my clutter drags along like a daggy lamb's tail. I need to clear stuff, and your newsletter is my light at the end of the tunnel.

I have actually started, and I am planning to make good use of my bins and to recycle used items.

Thank you for your inspiration, and thank you to your readers for sharing, it helps to know one is not alone, and stops me from beating myself up about it, too.


Dear Mimi,

You are so Inspirational. You have made me get rid of not only items lying around the house creating chaos, but also negative thoughts. Now I see a clean beautiful home and think positive thoughts.
