Announcing the Step-by-Step Decluttering Workshop

"I ordered this a couple months ago.
I have tried to declutter for years without success.
You have helped me to not feel guilty about the things that need to go.

It's unbelievable the amount of stuff that was hiding in my home. I have taken a huge amounts of stuff to the resale shop, goodwill and the curb.  

I can and will get through it one step at a time thanks to you!"

- Carol Larimore Boeker

Do you avoid inviting people over because you are too embarrassed of your house?

Have you stopped trying to organize and just settled for shoving clutter under the bed, in closets?

Have you spent hundreds or thousands of dollars on organizers, closet systems, and STILL can't get the house under control?

Do you feel like your house is too small and there’s not enough room to put everything away?

I hear you, friend!
And the good news is that you're not alone.

Did you know that a cluttered home causes on average:

  • $183 in food waste every month per US household because our kitchens are too messy to cook in (that's $2,196 per year!)
  • $30+ in late fees for every bill lost in a paper pile on the kitchen counter
  • Countless hours spent looking for lost items
  • Thousands of dollars spent on organization and storage products just to contain the things we're not using
  • $90 / month on a storage unit (1 in 10 households has one). This adds up to $1,080 per year and often goes on for years!
  • $150-400 per month spent on clothing - the average for women who have so many clothes that they can't easily put away their laundry or see their closet floor

And this isn't even counting the emotional cost of clutter.

No one tries to fill up their house with "stuff"...

... but it just happens over the course of many years if you're not paying attention.

Maybe you've inherited your parents belongings (or their frugal habits!)

Or maybe you can't pass up a good deal.

Or maybe you used to be organized but illness or a family crisis threw your home into chaos. 

how to declutter home

What if things were different?

clean kitchen

Imagine for a minute that you walk in the door after a busy day.

You breathe a deep sigh of relief because it's so good to be at home where you can relax.

The kitchen counter is clear because you did a 5 minute kitchen reboot before you left that morning. Easy peasy. 

The mail used to give you so much anxiety that you'd let it pile up for weeks before you could work up the energy to look at it.

But since you've gotten your home under control, the mail doesn't stress you out any more. You sort through the small stack of mail and file the bills immediately. you don't worry about them because you know you'll pay them on your upcoming office day.

You're so glad (and quite proud as well) that you can now look around and realize you love every single item.  You don't feel weighed down by your stuff. Your friends comment on how organized you are.

It feels amazing to be able to have visitors over without panicking over the state of your kitchen or bathroom.

Your home that once felt cramped now feels spacious and open. 

It's truly a pleasure to come home and enjoy that peace that you've created.

Do you want to say yes to a home that feels great?

The Step-by-Step Decluttering Workshop is the answer you've been looking for. 

This workshop is for people who:

  • Are frustrated and overwhelmed with all the STUFF in their homes
  • Are "stuck" and don't know how to make any progress in decluttering
  • Are overwhelmed by their homes because they don't have time to dig out
  • Feel like they're constantly cleaning
  • Know they need to cut down on their possessions but don't know where to start or what to get rid of
  • Have tried to declutter in the past but got burned out
  • Maybe even have a "room of shame"?

Hi! I'm Sarah.

    What Readers Are Saying

    “I try to declutter regularly and surround myself with only the things I use, love, and need. However, it seems like “stuff” comes in about as fast as it goes out, and I end up decluttering some of the same spaces yet again.

    I love that Step by Step Decluttering tackles the tough questions. Yes, please, I totally need that!

    Laura Smith
    I Heart Planners

    I am an organized person. I have systems that I think work well to keep clutter out of our lives, but in reading Sarah's book I loved the steps she took you through to REALLY work through it. Her systematic approach made everything so easy.

    Plus, Sarah has four kids. She totally gets how small hands can wreck your plans for clutter domination! If you're overwhelmed by what is in your home -- her steps will make it SO much easier on you. I totally recommend it!

    Hillary Erickson
    Pulling Curls

    Thank you so much for this book! I feel like I can finally go through my kids keepsake totes. I think there are like 8 totes of “keepsakes” that I’ve just not let go of and your book makes me feel better about setting stuff free!
    I’ve wanted to cut in half at least the number of these totes but just have been in the “messy middle” with them.
    Thanks for the encouragement!

    Morgan Tyree - Morganize with Me

    Let me tell you decluttering has been the best thing I have ever done. I work full time and we bought a new home five years ago. When we moved in I was working 10-12 hours a day, most weeks 6 days a week. My son-in-law became disabled and my daughter started working two jobs. Needless to say our house was a complete mess. I believe we had just gotten so overwhelmed that no one knew where to start.

    I cleaned the dining room which took me all day to do but it’s done. The table is clean, we have been eating at the table and on Saturday night, we have been having game night and playing games and clean the room afterward. Life is so much easier with our house clean and decluttered. I don’t think this would have ever happened without you and your help. You never made me feel bad about the house being such a mess but you gave me hope that we could get it done.

    Thank you for all your help and encouragement.


    Great suggestions and motivation to do what would make a serene environment

    Beth Chapman Oliver

    I absolutely love your book & have told several friends about it (& sent them your website).

    It has been very helpful to me in that I can understand more about the cost of my clutter & now I have manageable tips to tame it. I finally did the easiest thing & cleaned out my kitchen drawers- I was able to throw things away that we have no reason to be holding onto, gave my kids random measuring spoons for their toy kitchen (because 3 full sets plus random ones was just way too much) & am gifting several items to a friend.

    I was also able to clean out my plastic containers but that is still a work in progress but I have thrown a good bit away.

    Thanks for such a great resource!

    Shannon - mom to 3

    Step-by-Step Decluttering has given me the boost I needed. The best thing I have done is setting a timer and working 15, 25, and then 30 minutes at a time and then stopping. Decluttering is overwhelming and many times we feel we must tackle it all at once.

    I can't thank you enough for Step-by-Step Decluttering and all the valuable tips and lessons offered. I didn't take pictures but I will for the next room and send to you!

    Thank you so much! I am so thankful I found you!


    Love the simple, no pressure approach to decluttering! Been decluttering little by little over the course of a year and am so much happier. I can do it how and when I want without worrying about being perfect. It’s also saved me money because I no longer lose things in the clutter that I end up re-buying. Thank you!!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is this a physical book that will be shipped to my house?

    No. This is a digital product. A physical book will not be shipped. You will receive an email with links to the complete workshop. You have lifetime access.

    Is this a book on organizing?

    Organizing and decluttering are certainly related. However, it’s much easier to organize when you’ve decluttered first. There is one section that talks about organizing, but the rest of the book deals with the decluttering process.

    How is this book different from The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and the Konmari method?

    I find that Konmari encourages perfection and taking things on too much at a time. My clients actually find that they feel worse about their clutter after attempting this method. 

    In addition, Step-by-Step Decluttering spends more time on the emotional aspects of clutter.
