beautiful ocean and mountains WOMAN STANDING

I pinky swear that no pile of ‘stuff' big or small, can steal your crown or your fabulous energy. I know what you're thinking, “Easier said than done, Randi!” But, ladies, that's why I'm here. To arm (and charm) you with a pocketful of easy decluttering tips that will help you declutter your home and your life—without breaking a sweat or a nail!

Because, after all, isn't your home supposed to be your sanctuary? Not a shady lair for that souvenir keychain from 2003, or that blouse that “might” come back into fashion (spoiler alert: it won't).

Stuff-Management 101: How to Declutter Your Home

Alright, ladies, it's time to roll up those sleeves (figuratively speaking, of course, wouldn't want to crease that pretty blouse). Here's the lowdown on how to declutter.

Start with five minutes at a time. Yes, you read that right; just five tiny minutes. Got an ad break while binge-watching your favorite show? Perfect! Time to let go of a couple of “stuff.” You'd be amazed by what you can achieve in such a short time!

Quick Decluttering Tips: For the Fast and the Fabulous

I hear you, my lovelies, they don't call this the age of insta-(everything) for nothing. And for those of you who are more “Fast and Furious” than “slow and steady,” I've got some quick decluttering tips up my sleeve that even Dom Toretto would be proud of.

  1. The One-Year Rule: Haven't used it or worn it in a year? Get rid of it. (No, that doesn't apply to husbands!)

  2. One Room at a Time: Be graceful, be thorough, be one-room-at-a-timely.

  3. Donation Station: Items in good condition but not serving you anymore? Donation time, baby!


More Than Just Tips. It's Organizing!

Decluttering isn't just about tossing stuff out or stashing it in those colorful IKEA boxes. It's about organizing! It's about making your space a better reflection of the queen you are.

After you've decluttered, find a ‘home' for the items you've decided to keep. Remember, “A place for everything, and everything in its place.”

Learning from the Best: Emily Ley

Now, wouldn't this be incomplete without mentioning one of the queens of organizing herself, Emily Ley? Her philosophy is simple: Less stuff, less stress. Embrace the meaningful and ditch the meaningless, my lovelies.

Emily shares, “I've learned that clutter isn't just the stuff in your closet. It's anything that gets between you and the life that you want to be living.” Now, if that isn't a wake-up call to tell that clutter, “Thank you, next”, I don't know what is!

The Joy of Living Minimally

Purge yourself of clutter, and you'll find that you've not just decluttered a space, but also your mind. Believe me, it's like therapy without the hourly rate.

Achieving a clutter-free home isn’t just about throwing stuff away or cramming them into closets but about creatively organizing your space for things that you actually need, use, and love!

So, why wait? Don those cleaning gloves, fire up your favorite playlist, and let's get decluttering, darling!
