Decluttering your house could be overwhelming especially when you are working in several rooms at once and you become side tracked. You should work at one room at a time and if you have pick something up, you should follow an “only take care of it once rule.” Through it, you’ll put the item where they belong or allocate it to bet thrown away, donated, or sold. In case you keep always keep going back to exactly the same items over and over then it’ll feel like you’re not making any progress.

Having a fresh set of eyes can help you decide which items need to be kept, sold, donated, or thrown away.
Deal with the book pile.
If there is one item that is commonly seen in houses that are going through home organizing, it’s the books. Just like inherited items, homeowners find it hard to give up their books. If you love books then you should have a place where to store them. If you have lots of books filling your garbage, you should consider donating or selling them.
