Clutter can be a huge issue for many people with Attention Deficit Disorder. There are probably 101 reasons as to why people with ADD have accumulated clutter but in this post I would like to focus on moving forward and starting to eliminate clutter. I’m sure many adults with ADD would like to begin decluttering but often get stuck on where to begin.
As an ADD Coach I have found that starting with 3 basic categories can be very helpful. In addition to having these 3 categories having 3 different Containers is even more helpful. The 3 categories are:
- Throw Away
When stuck on where to begin just start sorting the "stuff" into these different containers. Having these containers in the specific room may also help prevent moving from room to room and getting distracted.
