How To Declutter The Attic

The attic is an area in our home many of us try to avoid at all costs!

It is definitely a place that can be considered ‘out of sight, out of mind.’ However, the more clutter that builds up in the attic, the more overwhelming and dreaded it becomes to start the uncluttering process.

Once you get the attic decluttered you will have a feeling like you just finished a marathon in the heat of summer!

Once it is decluttered, I encourage you to take the necessary steps to keep it in this condition so you never have to spend your precious time on this job again.

As you get started on your decluttering mission, the following checklist, specifically designed for the attic, will give you a great start to getting this room in perfect ‘no-clutter’ condition!
