Is it time to de-clutter my home?

That’s a massive question, for some of us. De-cluttering is a great idea, but can be overwhelming. If we try to do the whole house in one go, we will never get anywhere, and sometimes it’s not so much about getting rid of stuff, as being organised with our storage.
