Declutter tip: Tackle a prominent surface

Over the last three days, I’ve decluttered at least 80 things, mostly given away, some thrown away. It was actually quite easy to get to 80. I donated a bunch of books to my sister, as well as bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel (see previous post), hair bands and clips, and some left-over kitchen items she might find useful. What I threw out was mostly paper (old notes and print-outs). Unfortunately, there is no visual improvement to our home. There is simply too much stuff!

So, a tip for the next purge: tackle a more prominent area that will quickly yield a big improvement. Preferably a surface that you look at and/or access multiple times a day.
