I agree with the great advice that you already got. But a lot of decluttering is mental as well as physical. You cannot get yourself overwhelmed, you cannot be distracted. Start very small (as Amy suggested) but start with something that will make a difference in how you *feel*.
What I mean is - if you use the desk in your kitchen every day but it has become overrun with clutter, start with that. Then you will feel good every time you open that drawer.
If you have mountains of clothes in a room that you go into and it upsets you, start there.
Once you start, do not let yourself be interrupted. Don't answer the phone. It is easy to talk yourself out of decluttering if you are resistant to it.
It feels sooooooo good to purge! You'll be amazed! Good luck!

Good luck, and congrats on the babies!
