Step 1: Learn how to break it down
It might sound a little overwhelming that I am asking you to organize your entire life belongings, but it doesn't have to happen in one day. You've already convinced yourself that what you own is enough, now draw up a plan of how you are going to attack the apartment clutter. Whether you decide on 1 hour or 1 day at a time, don't try to be superman and burn yourself out.
Step 2: Set up an area for the purge
By cutting clutter out of your apartment, you will ultimately highlight what matters most to you. Items that are current and useful keep. If you don't use it, then lose it! Set aside an area and make a purge pile and a donate/sell pile and get started.
Step 3: Get a storage solution
Clutter attracts more clutter, therefore you must learn how to manage the clutter in the first place. Once you have purged then your next step is focus on organization. Carefully fold clothing and organize the shelves in the closet. Set up simple storage solutions in key areas of your apartment to help you stay organized and clutter-free.
