Schedule a day when you can do a whole house clutter sweep.

This way you'll save on start up/knock down time.

Schedule the Salvation Army or another charity to come to your house soon after your decluttering day. this gives you a deadline.

Dress so you can put all your energy into the job. Wear comfortable clothes and sneakers.

Be prepared.  You will need several types of containers: boxes labeled "Give Away", Garage Sale, and store. Plastic storage bins, see through are the best kind.

Start with the most cluttered room in your house.  work your way methodically around the room. Remove clutter from shelves bookcases, drawers, tabletops, floors and walls.

Toss or give away as much as possible

Dont allow non emergencies to interrup your clutter clearing time.
