Move at least 30% of your household out. This might sound extreme, but will make a big difference. Get a head start on packing by boxing up seasonal items, décor, and items you won’t use over the next 6 months. Consider renting a storage unit, or temporarily storing items at a friend, relative or neighbors home. Out of sight is best, but if you’re out of options, stack neatly labeled bins and boxes in a basement corner, storage shed or along one wall of the garage.
