Large-scale decluttering can be a multi-day process, especially if you’re using the KonMari method, and sometimes you just aren’t feeling up to that—not yet, anyway. You have to be in the right mindset to take on a whole-home cleaning adventure, and taking a few baby steps in the right direction can be a good way to pump yourself up.

To help ourselves get in the tidying-up spirit, we asked certified KonMari consultants for their favorite tiny decluttering tasks that make a noticeable difference. All of their suggestions will take just a few minutes, but you’ll immediately see the results—which will hopefully get you in the mood for spring cleaning. Even if it doesn’t, your house will still feel a little bit neater, and we count that as a win.
