Tip: According the American Heritage Dictionary on my shelf, the word clutter as a noun is defined as “a confused or disordered state or collection; a jumble”. As a verb the word clutter is defined as “to litter or pile in a disordered manner”. I often here my clients refer to it as their random things, mounds of stuff, or piles of junk.
The three best ways to combat clutter are:
1. Have a designated place where your items, things, and stuff belong, and return them there.
2. Schedule daily and weekly purging in your most lived-in areas of your home.
3. Allow less to come into your home. For example: less paper, mail, trinkets, and purchases
