getting ready to sell

i've made a list (gasp!) of things we need to check off in order to have a house that's ready to sell. i figure we have anywhere between 1-2 years left in this house. 
so! i'm trying to get rid of things daily, clean, and organize. i'm constantly looking at houses for sale (i think i should've been a realtor in another life)--i just like house dreaming.

My main area of concern is clutter, so:
    -master bedroom closet, side tables, armoire

    -office desk, closet
    -entryway cabinet, closet
    -kitchen cabinets, drawers, counters, shelves, pantry
    -living room console, ottoman
    -backyard shed
