How to Declutter Your Home in 5 Easy Steps


Most of us could stand to have less clutter in our homes. After all, who wants to wade through piles of unwanted clothes, unread books, and issues of discarded magazines just to go from your bedroom to the bathroom? Declutter your life by following these five easy organizing tips. Happy Cleaning!

    1. Stuff in a Box
      You shouldn’t let random events and whims determine what items you save and which you throw away. If you own items with which you are not yet ready to part, put them in what you will call “maybe boxes.” Label all of your maybe boxes and keep in a safe and dry location. While you should throw away any possessions that are obvious trash, putting some items in a “maybe” category allows you to declutter your house without making a tough decision on a favorite item right that second.

 

    1. Get Help
      Use your friends as important allies in the fight against needless clutter. You should enlist people who value sentimentality and not let you part with stuff that may have special meaning to you. In addition to your sentimental cohort, you should also ask the ruthless cleaners and minimalists in your life to help you. These friends will force you to question the use and need of every item you have in your house. Institute a cleaning rule: If you haven’t used it in three months, throw it out with no exceptions. Your ruthless cleaning friends will help you enforce this guideline so that you can declutter your life.

 

    1. Work in Short Bursts
      If you plan on taking the bulls by the horns and cleaning out your home in one big session, chances are you will procrastinate until the cows come home. Instead of trying to declutter your home in one day, take an hour here and thirty minutes there to declutter your house. You’re less likely to put off the job because you can think “it’s only half an hour.” Make your decluttering session lively by putting on some of your favorite music while you clean.

 

    1. Take a Picture. It’ll Last Longer
      Are you an empty-nester wondering if you should keep every crayon drawing your kids ever gave you? If you’re serious about making your home clutter-free, keep your most cherished gifts from your children. You can take pictures of the rest so that you’ll have some sentimental record of them. You can also give the items you don’t keep to your children. They’ll get a kick out of having things that they made as kids in their home.

 

    1. Give It Away
      Has your friend always admired the vase in your living room? If you’re neutral about that vase, give it to your friend as a gift. Gift your friends with your items that they would like and buy for themselves. But don’t give your family and friends junk that no one would want. There are plenty of thrift stores and non-profits that could use your castaways.
