THE DECLUTTERING STARTER KIT
Step-by-Step system to conquering your clutter and prioritizing what you care about
Fill your life with freedom and clarity by following an action plan built for you. Skip the overwhelm and declutter with confidence.
There’s no greater reward than having the freedom to prioritize more of what matters
But chances are, YOU ALREADY KNOW THIS.
You’ve spent months (maybe even years) frustrated with the current state of your home, life, or mindset.
And you’ve started to hear a voice inside saying:
Maybe I can motivate myself to declutter this weekend.
Maybe I can get faster results if I organize better.
Maybe I declutter without going as far as minimalism.
But whenever you even think about starting to declutter or continuing to work on your existing projects, you end up overwhelmed and stuck in the frozen zone.
To make matters worse, no matter how many videos you watch and podcast you listen to, it never seems to make a lasting difference
You’re still surfing YouTube videos, trying to piece together all the varying advice.
Yet you don’t feel any closer to knowing where to start or how to achieve your decluttering goals without feeling overwhelmed.
You acknowledge that you have too much stuff, but because of your rocky experience with decluttering, you wonder if owning less is even suitable for you.
Hey there, my name is Ronald L. Banks
I’m a YouTuber and founder of the Clarity Club, and my audience has a mild fascination with my poetic communication style.
When I started decluttering in 2016, I had no clue what I was doing or the best place to start.
Even though I’d been writing poetry for four years and had grown to be very reflective, I knew next to nothing about how to live with less.
I mean... look at how many unnecessary clothes I had
(This was just scratching the surface of the clutter that consumed my life.)
At the time, my primary objective was to reinvent myself and use decluttering as a means to create my life rather than just stripping things out of it. But I had no roadmap or clear plan for how I would achieve that.
Whenever I attempted to declutter, I felt like I was making a bigger mess.
I’d spend hours pulling things out, only to put most of it back. My ‘strategy’ wasn’t much of a strategy, if I’m honest.
Occasionally, my decluttering efforts produced tangible results. But it was quickly followed by frustration, overwhelm, and periods of just existing in the frozen zone.
There were a few times when I could have called it quits and reverted to my old habits, which would have been easy. But I had a vision for my life and was determined to bring it to fruition.
My progress was slow, but I knew I was heading in the right direction.
As I continued to persist with the journey, I eventually broke through and decluttered everything that was no longer serving me.
But first, here’s what I didn’t do
I didn’t obsess over counting my positions or attempt to organize my way to becoming clutter-free.
While those tactics may create the temporary appearance of being clutter-free, it’s not enough for sustainable change. (It’s just a bandaid on a wound that needs stitches).
Instead, a true clutter-free life goes beyond the appearance or number of possessions.
It’s one where you get to
- Prioritize the things that matter to you without feeling guilty
- Put your family first and create valuable memories
- Enjoy using your home rather than spending all your time cleaning it
- Connect with inspiring people and build relationships that add value to both your lives
- Pursue meaningful work that’s fulfilling and rewarding beyond the paycheck
Now, the path to achieving this can be overwhelming...
At least if you go at it alone.
But, if you've ever wished for a guide to show you the way – look no further.
