It is very difficult to declutter when you’re overwhelmed. You wonder where to start, how to handle the excess stuff, whether you want to keep something “just in case.”

Fortunately, there’s help.  In this zen habits article, Leo Babauta explains how decluttering your home starts with just 10 minutes a day.

Once you’ve set aside 10 minutes a day to declutter, here are the 5 steps you need to take.

  1. Create space in your schedule – decide when you’ll spend 10 minutes decluttering.
  2. Pick a spot. It can be the entryway, junk drawer, or closet floor. Where you start doesn’t matter, picking one spot does.
  3. Pile it up. Clear the space and make a pile of everything in it.
  4. Decide on one thing at a time. Make quick decisions and keep moving.
  5. Create a home for each item you decide to keep.
