This means trying to get rid of more and more mess before things can be put back together. Set aside a few days to inventory everything in your storage space intensively. Each object needs to be assessed, and you have to make a tough decision to relocate or get rid of it.

Remember, everything you find during the decluttering process in your garage/attic/storage space should be put in some organizational zones. They could include areas by season (summer, autumn, winter, spring) or type (toys, Christmas, etc.). Make big, highly readable labels for each zone and pilot objects for each label.When your areas are coordinated, you can experience a well-earned sense of achievement.
