Most of us are drowning. In clutter, that is. And it just keeps getting deeper, doesn't it? Like most everyone, I'm always making promises about clearing stuff out and making a fresh start. Is 2018 going to be the breakthrough year, I wonder?
If you're with me on this, you may be interested in a few ideas I've just come across on the best way to de-clutter your home. Most people don’t know where to start so here's what the renowned LifeHack self-improvement website suggests:
- Start small -- one room at a time and just a quarter hour or so for each session. That way you won't feel overwhelmed.
- Start at the top. Begin in the attic or bedrooms and work your way down.
- Start in the middle of a room. That makes it easier to clear floor space and see progress -- to keep you going!
- Get rid of stuff that's broken, useless or outdated. Be firm!

While we're thinking about the New Year, I'd like to offer my best wishes for the year ahead. I hope it's a good one. And please remember I'll be here in 2018 for all your insurance questions and needs!
