Many people will take advantage of the weekend by decluttering their homes.

While I advise spending the weekend in activities that involve a little more fun, decluttering your space  may lead to a happier life.

In this blog post, Joshua Becker shares 7 tips to speed up the decluttering process.

Here are a few highlights:

1. Start with the low-hanging fruit.

Declutter in waves. Go from room to room, and quickly fill boxes with the items you no longer need.

2. Forget about the garage sale.

Instead of planning a garage sale, donate your items instead. Not only will you help someone else, donating is a much quicker process than planning a garage sale.   Some charities will make it easier for you by picking up your donation.

3. Get accountable.

Tell a friend about your decluttering plan, and invite them over to see your progress.

As our client Deb writes:

Walking into my house after Sponge & Sparkle had cleaned it was fantastic! They cleaned every nook and cranny, steamed the cabinets, got the cobwebs from our vaulted ceilings – even set my daughters doll on a pillow with a blanket. These folks care about what they do and it shows! They do a fantastic job, are reliable, honest and a pleasure to work with. My house was a mess and they fixed it! Read Deb’s review here.
