This is the first post of a series called Day-by-Day Decluttering to help those of you who are just getting started–or starting over again–on decluttering.
If you’re overwhelmed with a cluttered, messy house, where do you start to gain control? Well, with the garbage, of course. You know what garbage I’m talking about, right? That empty chip bag your teenager left on the coffee table. The empty water bottle or soft drink can on the side table. Those bits of crayon labels on the dining table. Stuff like that. Recycle what you can. Throw away the rest.
