Declutter Using the Visibility Rule

If you’re just getting started on your decluttering projects for the year, choose a space that you see every day. We recommend starting right at the front door. 

If you don’t have much of a drop zone, maximize the space you do have by installing a small bench where you can take off wet shoes as you come in the door. Then store shoes under the bench until they dry. Add a basket for hats/gloves/scarves.  Install a few hooks on the wall so you can hang your coats as you come in the door.  Keep only one coat per family member here. Any extras go into closets elsewhere.

Once the area is completed, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment and will encourage you to continue to work on other areas of your home.
