#ConsciousConsumer: 8 Simple Strategies For When You’re Struggling to Declutter, from Becoming Minimalist:

Here are eight ideas for when you’re struggling to declutter:
1. Take things one step at a time.
If you are struggling with overwhelm, concentrate on one room, one piece of storage, or even one shelf at a time—especially if the job as a whole seems insurmountable. Your speed doesn’t matter, a step forward is still a step forward.
2. Find your people.
Online support can be a huge help, but there is nothing like meeting up face-to-face with other people who are pursuing simplicity. Depending on your immediate surroundings, this may or may not be easy to do. But the more you share your story of the change you are trying to make, the more people you will find drawn to it.
3. Take before-and-after photos.
Often times, being able to see the progress you have already made is helpful —especially if we start to feel frustrated during the process.
4. Do half-a-job (at least for now).
So you still have, let’s say, a vintage teddy bear collection and you’re afraid to say goodbye to it completely. Could you let go of half of them? This strategy can be particularly helpful for some of those hard-to-remove items (books, sentimental collections, souvenirs, hobby stuff).
5. Inject some fun into the process.
There are loads of decluttering games you can play. I came up with one called the five-in-five challenge: can you find five items you don’t want in just five minutes? You could even challenge your whole household to compete against each other. Or check out some of these ideas.
6. Quarantine your belongings.
Try boxing up items you fear you might need one day, and hide them away for a set period of time before letting them go. If there’s anything in there you truly do need, you’ll realize before you’ve given it away.
7. Work out your weak-points.
What have you found easy to declutter, and what have you found hard?home, but don’t fear the process.
Don’t beat yourself up if you’re not seeing instant results.

Homemade Spot Remover for carpets:
What you will need:
1 tbsp Vinegar (I use white distilled)
2 tbsp Baking Soda
2 drops Lemon essential oil (natural stain remover)
Mix ingredients together to form a past. Then, work the paste into the carpet stain with a rag, sponge, old toothbrush or whatever you want. (always test out on a small area first. All carpets are different)
spotremoveron
Allow the paste to dry; then vacuum up the baking soda, and the stain should be gone. My stain was gone the first time! It took about 20 minutes to dry completely.
Note: Some stains may need to be treated more than once.
