  • There is frugalvillage, wonderful information there! Then I found an awesome site where she even breaks down goals for each day for you...like the first day...clean your sink. Yep, that is it, but reading about it will give you a good idea. The next day is clean your sink then something else. I really loved how this site takes different tasks and helps you through them. http://www.flylady.net/

  • First, take a breath!
    Second, do one room at a time.

    Make 4 piles of stuff.... KEEP, DONATE, SELL, TRASH
    Ask yourself a few questions: Have I used this in the past 6 months? Why am I keeping it? Do I need it?
    Sort it into its corresponding pile, bin, or box.
    Do the normal cleaning and put away the KEEP.
    Take out the Trash.
    Drop of the Donations
    Set aside the sell for a garage sale!

    Start in your Living room or your Kitchen, a place that you see or walk through every day. This will inspire you to keep going. Take your time and before you know it, it will be done! Learn to let go of things. If you have lots of clutter just remember that they are just things and memories that they trigger you keep forever in your mind. You will be surprised at how much stuff you have that you really don't need.
