It can't be done.
We've all tried it and lost the battle.
The only way to conquer clutter is to REMOVE it!
Tip # 11 is "One in? Two out!"
Until you truly have a clutter free home, or at least clutter free room, you cannot simply take in a new item and get rid of an old one. You must send more things away than are coming in!
For every new item you bring in, send two or more away.
Give them away...or throw them away...but say GOODBYE!
