How To Declutter Your Home Once and For All (Even If You Have No Time and Don't Know Where To Begin)
Imagine waking up a week from now, and every room in your house is now beautiful and uncluttered...
You deserve to live in a home that is peacefully organized and exactly the way you want it.
But instead, every day, you face the clutter that is getting in the way of the life you deserve.
Every week you tell yourself you're going to work on the clutter.
You start decluttering and get overwhelmed, because you don't know where to start.
You can't get the energy to work on the piles of stuff.
So the clutter sits there day after day, staring you in the face.
Sometimes you don't even see the clutter, but in the back of your head, it's making you depressed!
Some of this stuff isn't even yours, but you're stuck with it anyway!
When you do start a decluttering project - you end up with a worse mess than you started with!
All this leads to less and less energy and just feeling TOO TIRED to try!
It's true. CLUTTER is keeping you from having the life you deserve.
That's because clutter is more than just clutter.
Clutter creeps in and sneaks up on you, like a thief.
Clutter robs you of happiness and energy.
Clutter keeps you from reaching your goals, day after day.
But starting today, you can break free from the clutter that's getting in the way of your life and your joy.
You're Not Alone, Because Most People Have a Clutter Problem!
That's right - most people have a clutter problem.
That's why there are so many "Get Organized" books!
There are even TV shows about people with wall-to-wall clutter... so the rest of us can hopefully say,
"My problem is not that bad... yet!"
The good news is that it really doesn't matter how bad your own clutter is, because there is a way to conquer the clutter...
To start with, here are two secrets I want you to know.
It takes MUCH less time to declutter than it does to look at piles of clutter and feel bad day after day after day.
The time we spend fretting about our clutter and putting ourselves down is time we could be enjoying our surroundings and feeling like a winner.
You may have already tried several of those books on how to get organized. Some of them are great. Others make you feel exhausted just looking at the Table of Contents!!
Why make this task harder than it needs to be?
You can declutter your home EVEN IF YOU WANT TO KEEP ALL YOUR STUFF.
(But I hope you want to get rid of MOST of it. That will make your life so much easier.)
When you create order in your life, and see how good that feels, most other people are still going to have their clutter problem. But you won't.
I won't tell a soul if you feel a teensy bit superior! After all, you earned it by following the methods I'm going to tell you about.
Try not to turn into a Decluttering Evangelist - but it's hard not to once you realize how truly easy it is to create order in your home even overnight.
I know this sounds hard to believe. But you'll be surprised how quickly you can go from living in a depressing disaster - to living in a home that makes you feel proud every day.
The difference between depression and happiness is waking up to a home that cheers you up every single day. This energizes you to reach all your goals.
History Lesson: How Your Clutter Added Up
Have you ever thought about your Clutter History? You probably have.
You weren't born with all this stuff!!
Let me guess - when you first started out in your adult life, you bought LOTS OF STUFF.
You didn't have much stuff at first, but in just a few years, it was a different story!!
Then whenever it was time to move, it was a freaking nightmare.
You found yourself moving boxes of stuff - and sometimes you didn't even know what was in the boxes, because you hadn't looked in them in years.
Like most people, I bought tons of stuff over the years. I bought hundreds of books, too. I couldn't pass up a yard sale without buying some cool piece of furniture. Years of this behavior led to more and more STUFF.
Finally I STOPPED accumulating stuff - but I couldn't make a dent in getting rid of the years of stuff I had accumulated.
Every time I tried to declutter, I'd go down a "rabbit hole."
I'd get sidetracked by papers and objects I hadn't seen in years.
I started organizing things and made a bunch of file folders... but did I finish organizing everything? No.
The worst part was that I couldn't figure out where to put everything. There simply was not enough room.
But for a long time, the clutter wasn't such a big deal. Why? Usually I had a garage where I could park EVERYTHING (except the car).
After the kids grew up, my home had NO garage. That's where the trouble started...
So what did I do? Sometimes I just blissfully ignored cluttered areas. But usually, every time I looked at rooms that had STUFF, it drained my energy.
It affected my mood, my confidence, my happiness, my motivation, and my work!
So finally I got a storage space and just hauled everything in there.
That worked great for a while... (except for the monthly storage bill which kept increasing...)
Then later, my relatives passed away and guess who had to deal with all their STUFF???
So I got a bigger storage place - the size of a small studio apartment! Then I paid the ever-increasing bill for YEARS.
(When I add up how much I spent on storage spaces... I don't even want to think about it!!)
When the monthly storage bill got shockingly high, I decided enough was enough. I emptied the storage place out and brought everything BACK to my home. (The same home with no garage and no storage place.)
Now I was saving hundreds every month... but I had a disaster of epic proportions!! So much stuff and nowhere for it to go!
More than half of my home was FULL of STUFF, including boxes I hadn't opened in well over a DECADE, not to mention OTHER PEOPLE'S STUFF - including people who were no longer living!
Oh, and I knew that if I got rid of my mom's beautiful stuff, she would have a fit from beyond the grave...
The "stuff" felt like a bottomless pit that would never end!
What a nightmare. Talk about depressing!!!
I felt stuck. I felt lazy. And I felt trapped!!
Surely life was not supposed to be like that!
Clutter is the Worst!!!
There's nothing that drains your energy more than living with clutter.
Your basic STUFF should not have a hold on you.
It should not get in the way of your life!
But here's the crazy part; I have always LOVED reading books about getting decluttered and organized.
I spent so much time getting into this subject and loving it, and yet, now here I was having this exact same problem!!
And what's worse, I was starting to almost not even care!!
(I did care, but I pretended to myself I didn't so I could get through the day with as little stress as possible.)
My dream was to have a perfect home where relatives and friends could come visit and the house would look like as dreamy as a bed and breakfast inn!!
I knew that's what I wanted to wake up to every morning too. I'd look at older pictures of the inside of my home and think, "My home used to look so adorable - WHAT HAPPENED??"
And I found that my cherished books on decluttering were mainly INSPIRING... but they didn't have the solutions that I really needed.
So it was time for me to take my passion for decluttering solutions and come up with my own!!
And over the years, I finally found a way you can get things organized on your own terms, in your own time: fast, slow or a little of both!
I fully admit that some of my methods are a bit controversial because some people give me a LOT of flack for my methods - BUT THEY WORK.
My name is Mimi Tanner, and thank God, I'm NOT a professional organizer! I've been accused of a lot of things, and being professional is not one of them.
But I am passionate about the subject of decluttering, and always have been - despite my own frequent clutter challenges!!
I tried just about every method to get control of my clutter.
I read every book on the subject there was, and I loved most of those books.
Some of them inspired me - but the clutter still OWNED me.
After years of seeking solutions but not getting very far, I finally had to get real.
I had to get EXTREME about decluttering.
I had to do what actually worked, whether other people approved or not!
And I found a better way to get order in my life.
This way is not for everyone - I'll grant you that...
But there is nothing in this world that feels quite the same as looking around your home and seeing it in order JUST the way you've been wanting it to look for so long.
I want you to live every day with the peace of mind and soul that results from having your home exactly the way you want it - where you are in control of your stuff, and not the other way around.
And it gets better. The effect of decluttering will open door after door for you.
Decluttering releases the bonds that have been holding you back.
Decluttering ignites the fire of energy within you - energy you didn't even know you had!
The stress in your face and body will melt away and your confidence will return.
Things start to fall into place in every area of your life when you get things in order!

I have all these 'demons' under my bed, you know old papers and stuff, suitcases etc. I did start out on my own with the decluttering and was I overwhelmed!

"So, I grabbed your program and actually applied the tips before even reading it till the end. Tonight, I have very few 'demons' troubling my sleep. Also, I've managed to create some empty space in my closet for that special someone yet to enter my life.

absorbed in what they are doing that they don't

tends to develop. Clutter always seems to affect the
busiest people, yet clutter-free surroundings are
optimal in order to have peace of mind and good

P.S. There are three things that we can do with clutter - set it on fire (not recommended), leave it alone (which causes you stress and makes your life harder) or deal with it - so let's choose to deal with it!
Now let's take care of that clutter once and for all - together!
"I've never commented to anyone about anything I've ordered before. That is until now. I came across your program and have to admit that I was hesitant to purchase it, however, I took the plunge and made the effort and boy am I ever glad I did.
"I have read one or two books on organization but never cover to cover as it was too tedious, somewhat boring and then the plans of action became just too overwhelming (e.g., the four-box method didn't work for me either). Your program is easy to read, understandable and offers totally simple techniques. I read it quickly and put forth the efforts to de-clutter that same week. Matter of fact, I couldn't wait to start de-cluttering.
"I'm actually writing this from a desk that is completely de-cluttered and it feels fabulous. I still have quite a bit of de-cluttering to do, but with your techniques it actually will be kind of fun. Your program made it so much easier for me.
"Thank you, thank you, thank you."
