Create a Task
After you know what you are supposed to do, let's make it work by creating a task with realistic target. Don't worry, you can do it just one step at a time as long as you keep your focus.

the list goes on, and don't forget to mark the finished section. Try focus in your current task so it will be a lot easier for you to handle.
Every Piece Has its Place
Sometimes during the process of tidying up, we often stumbled upon objects that we have no clue where to put at. Maybe it's the stuff we impulsively bought but not really useful, or maybe it's a gift, or something you really have no idea about. Be aware, that every piece has its designated place. If you really cannot find a place for them, but you feel that they are important enough to keep, then use a container that would temporarily store them until you know how to deal with all those stuffs. But remember, don't make this a habit. You can't just add new container every time you are confused!
Now, filter your stuff for the unused ones. You need to discard those you don't need. Expired products, torn clothes, broken electronics, stack of unimportant papers, etc. The more you can get rid of, the better. You'll save some space for future usage.
