Declutter Your Home Checklist: 50 Things to Declutter Free Printable

Decluttering feels overwhelming when you don’t know where or how to start.

It makes it worse when you come across an item that makes it hard to decide what to do with it.

Should you throw it already? Perhaps you can just give it to a friend? Or should you keep it just in case you may come to use it again?

This is why when you’re just starting to declutter, it’s important to focus your efforts on those items that are easier to decide whether to keep or let go.
