De-clutter Your Home

Is too much stuff overtaking your life?

Are you having trouble finding things?

Do you want to reclaim your home and make your space more relaxing?

Here are a few tips which you may find useful…….

Create a sense of order by gathering related items and putting them together. By sorting your possessions you can see exactly what you have.

Decide what you need to get rid of. To make things easier, start small and work with one drawer, cupboard or space at a time. It is also important to begin with a room or space which you are least emotionally attached to. This tip is recommended so you don’t stall the de-cluttering process.

Options for dealing with your clutter –

Throw out items which are broken or worthless.

Give away goods to charity for someone else to use.

Consider advertising and selling items online if you would like a return on your money spent over the years.

Any goods which you decide to keep will need to be stored.

Decide exactly where goods you’re keeping will be stored. This will depend on how often they are used. Possessions used frequently need to be accessed easily.

Gather groups of possession and store them in appropriate size containers. Labelling containers, boxes etc can be very helpful, enabling you to see what you have stored at all times.

After you have de-cluttered evaluate your system. Ask yourself, is it working? Do you need to make any changes or improvements?

Finally, stay on top of the CLUTTER by tidying up regularly.
