Once you have a good system in place that will help you remember the things you need to do, you can start getting rid of some of the clutter around your home. Clutter can really disrupt the flow of your home and even cause depression. In other words, it has no place in a home. Depending on how much clutter your home has, this step may require a great deal of work. De-cluttering your home does not mean moving the clutter from one spot to another.
