Bye Clutter

I find decluttering my house satisfying. Do you?

Maybe it causes you anxiety and you have no idea where to start.

How about we talk about a checklist to get you started!

The keypoint in removing clutter is start and finish in the same room & then move on to the next room. Starting in several different rooms will have you losing your mind.
