Do you ever feel like you can’t relax because there’s clutter everywhere you look and you don’t know where to start or feel like it’s pointless to start? Or that unsettled feeling of not making any progress despite your best intentions? You clean up the clutter only to find it returned and multiplied. There’s a pile of last week’s mail on the counter, the kids have toys, shoes, and backpacks strewn from one corner of the house to the next and people need to eat tonight.

Is it too much to ask to have a calm home to walk into to? Is it even possible with everything else you have going on? Maybe you’re just destined to live a life of clutter forever.

If you’ve ever felt like this, you aren’t alone. Any time I survey readers about what they struggle with the most, it’s clutter. Instead of moving the piles around, I want you to be able to get rid of the clutter for good, enjoy a life with less stuff, and have systems in place to help you continue to succeed. If clutter makes you crabby but you don’t necessarily know how to get rid of it for good or everything you’ve tried before hasn’t worked, I have something to share with you.


I love living a life with less clutter. It’s easy to find just what I’m looking for, the house is always a few minutes from picked up and we just have more space and less visual noise to be in as a family. Clutter is overwhelming, but the process to get rid of it for good doesn’t have to be. Living a life with less clutter is calming.

THE CLUTTER HANDBOOK is a 50 page pdf guide and resource webpage designed to take the guesswork out of decluttering your home. It doesn’t matter if you’re starting from a room you can’t walk into or if you just have a couple of annoying clutter piles, this guide is designed to take you from clutter to decluttered in simple, manageable steps. Here’s how THE CLUTTER HANDBOOK is structured to help you find success in decluttering you home:

  1. Learn to declutter ruthlessly and in a way that makes sense for your schedule, home, and current clutter situation.
  2. Set up systems to effectively deal with your existing clutter.
  3. Learn how to navigate incoming clutter.
  4. Deal with clutter daily so it never piles up again.

THE CLUTTER HANDBOOK is a step-by-step manual for decluttering your home. I’ve simplified my own personal decluttering method into an approachable system perfect for busy households and people with a time budget. Let’s face it – if you don’t have time, that might be why your home is cluttered in the first place. You might have piles and stacks of stuff that’s been waiting for you to sort through for years or maybe it’s just piled up in the last weeks or months during a particularly busy season of life. Whatever your current state of clutter is, you’re going to get to the bottom of it and get rid of it for good.
