How can I deal with clutter?

Sheri D. Pruitt
Psychology
For clutter at home, don't try to organize your whole house or even a whole room. Instead, pick one small section of a room to organize. Then pick a day and a set amount of time to get the job done. When you've got the first section done, pick another. Same thing at work; tackle office clutter one corner at a time.

Remember, it took weeks or maybe even years to accumulate that clutter. Tackling the job one section at time will make the task much more manageable and a lot less stressful.
