The plan is to declutter your home in 30 minutes a day.  This guide will take you through each room in your home with specific instructions to declutter that space in less than 30 minutes.

As our expert Elizabeth Scott, M.S. writes "clutter stresses, order soothes." Clutter can also cost you money and time. Money because if you don't know where things are you may buy duplicates, and time because you are probably spending way too much time searching for things in your home.

This guide will ease you into decluttering on a more regular basis. I personally like to walk aimlessly around my home decluttering, but pros advise to concentrate your time in one place - a room, a corner of a room -- to be more effective.

So pick up a bin and plan to spend 15-30 minutes in one room or area at a time.
