Has clutter started to dominate your Lancaster, PA home?

Household clutter is sneaky. It accumulates a little at a time so that we barely notice there is a problem. Before long opening the closet door becomes a challenge as stuff comes flying down from the top. But it is a well known fact that the amount of clutter in your home can determine your stress level. Getting rid of clutter is often a great tactic to turn over a new leaf. So how do you get started?
Start small. List the rooms with the most clutter in your home. Start with the most cluttered space. Take a look at the room. What doesn't belong in there? Give yourself a half hour and round up things that do not need to be in that space and either put them in another location or put them in a box to figure out at a later date. After your half hour round, assess the space one more time. Does it feel bigger, cleaner and more open?
Next, look over the furniture in the space. Is there too much furniture? Are the furnishings in the space too big? Consider moving extra items and replacing them with scaled back pieces. Don't want to part with mom's intricate china closet or a special heirloom chest? Don't decide now.
