1. Empty the Space
Simply clear the space of all its contents. If you are working with a very large space you can do this step in segments, working only with a given section of the room.
Decision Time! If you don’t love it or use it, toss it! Less really is More. Clutter creates physical and mental clutter. Create four piles in this step:
“Keep: Relocate to another space”
“Keep: Belongs in this space”
Place like-items together according to size, kind, color, shape, etc.
4. Replace Items
Put all the items that you love and use back into the space and you are finished!
