Decluttering is the best and most efficient way to get organized in the new year. You won’t ever have to deal again with an item once you’ve decluttered it. It reduces stress and can help you organize your home. Because it sets us up to succeed, we always begin the new year with a decluttering mission in our Insiders membership.
You don’t have to feel defeated if you try everything and nothing works. There is still something that works for you. I can tell that I get a lot from seeing the before and afterwards photos that our Insiders take in our annual Decluttering Mission. Perhaps you’ll find inspiration in my 23 Things to Declutter Today video. It can be found here. Or, you can read it to see the things I decluttered.

3. Get rid of duplicate photos from your phone
We all take 23 billion pictures of our kids blowing out birthday candles to make sure we have the right one. There is only one good picture, so get rid of the rest and make room for that one.
4. Destroy old emails
This is a legit photo of my inbox a while ago– yes, that’s 76,946 emails. Eek. Eek. The video is available here.
5. Declutter your Instant Pot!
It’s fine if you use your Instant Pot. If you buy it for the trendiest appliance of recent years, but you never use it, do you really need it hanging around in your cabinets? If…
