Top Posts of 2016 - To Help You Declutter in 2017!

I know I'm a little late posting the top posts of 2016, but better late than never right?!

If you want to get organized this year and you aren't sure where to get started, these posts are a great starting point!

I'm going to share the top 5 posts that were published last year as well as the top 5 older posts that were still popular.  There's a bit of a pattern... can you find it?

Organizing and Decluttering in 2017

So did you pick up the theme? I'll give you a second to scroll back...

All of these posts had a decluttering focus! Yep... decluttering is definitely the most important and most challenging part of getting organized. And it's what overwhelms people the most.

Does this sound familiar?

You often feel like you’re just one step away from going crazy. Just when you get one closet decluttered, you find another closet door that won’t shut. Or when you finally get your inbox empty, another stack of papers comes in the mail.

So you start feeling overwhelmed, wondering how to find the time to develop a system that works for you, how to squeeze in more decluttering, and how on earth you can get your family to participate. You wind up feeling MORE overwhelmed than you were in the first place.

But what if you could find systems that work for you, not against you? Solutions that will {at last!} be the organizational remedy you’ve been waiting for?

I think the Conquer Your Clutter Super Bundle from the Ultimate Bundles team will help you :)

Ryan and Stephanie and their wonderful team from Ultimate Bundles have been putting together incredible eBook and eCourse bundles for several years now.

What I love about Ultimate Bundles is the quality and value of the resources included in each bundle, how easy it is to download and use, their amazing customer service team, and the bonus offers included with each one.

And you're still reading this post, I know you're looking for help to get more organized. So I have a feeling you’re going to love this newest bundle.

The Conquer Your Clutter Super Bundle contains 38 incredible eBooks, eCourses, and printables designed to help you:

  • Declutter and organize your home
  • Create a “touch it once” system for paper
  • Get your photos organized
  • Get your family organized with systems that work
  • Manage your time like a CEO
  • Plus so much more.

I bought a copy of this bundle and I'm LOVING the great resources in it!  I've started reading Step By Step Decluttering by Sarah Meuller and it's great! She's included action items and printable worksheets to help you get started decluttering and get some easy wins.

Also included in the bundle are two bonuses: a tool that can help you manage your inbox and a four-month free trial to a popular budgeting software program to handle your finances! I haven't tried them yet, but I checked them out and they look really helpful.

The resources are created by people who have learned how to conquer all the different types of clutter (physical, mental, digital) in their life – and win!

The combined value of the resources in the toolkit is over $650, but you get EVERYTHING for a ridiculous 95% off!

If you’ve struggled to find systems to help you streamline your life and inject some much-needed peace into your home, the Conquer Your Clutter Super Bundle will remove that barrier for you.

Worried you won’t know where to start with all the resources in the bundle? Or that you'll have information overload? Don’t be! Inside the bundle you’ll find a handy Getting Started Guide so you can take action right away.

Ryan and Steph (and their awesome team) are extremely picky about what they include in their bundles and spend a whole lot of time researching which resources would be BEST suited to the needs of people like you.

Here are some other posts I've written about the bundle if you'd like more details:
