Everyday make it a habit to tidy up. If you pick up along the way it stops the piles and clutter from becoming overwhelming! Take advantage of every step of your day. If you see something that belongs in the direction you are heading take it with you and drop it off in the room or area it needs to be. You can see how this would help declutter fast! Don’t be afraid to get the family or roommates involved, it only makes everyone’s areas easier to manage.
Just remember every step is important to your day, just like a personal trainer will tell you to keep your core tight, flexed and straightened all day, you can keep your clutter to a minimum by picking up the laundry or shoes tossed to the side and bring them to their proper home!
