2. Get organised – a spreadsheet can help you decide on what you need to orgnise. 
3. Declutter the easy stuff – remove all the items from your home that you can easily declutter that no one wants and its been on your ‘to do’ list for a while or any of those broken items that are in the garage – if you clear these out first, you will be able to see from there what is left.
4. Downsize sustainably – start with ways to sell items, then work on recycling or repurposing.
