Plan to organize your home so you'll never need to "fall clean" or "spring clean" your home again! If you use the S.O.S. System – Streamline, Organize, and Systematize – you will have a home that is well maintained all year. Today we'll talk about the first step – Streamline.
Streamlining means eliminating all unnecessary items in your home…in other words, clutter. Don't spend time cleaning and arranging clutter. If you sort and toss or give away things that aren't necessary, enjoyable, or productive, you'll have les 'stuff' to clean and arrange.

Parting with clutter will be easier if you remember some facts about clutter:

1. Clutter wastes time. You can't find what you need when you need it because there
is too much stuff to look through. Or you get side-tracked looking through the
clutter, and never finding whatever you were looking for.

2. Clutter wastes energy. It takes energy to maintain it, clean around it, and move it.

3. Clutter is not attractive. A cluttered house never looks clean. Walking into a cluttered
house can even destroy a good mood.

4. Clutter wastes money. You might buy a duplicate of something you already own,
because you can't find it buried beneath a mound of clutter.

5. Clutter can be dangerous if it causes someone to trip or have an accident.

So dig through your clutter and resolve to sell, give away, or throw away whenever you don't need or want. Now, enjoy living in a streamlined, uncluttered home!
