If one of your goals for the new year is to declutter your home, we have some top tips to help you get started. Whether you’re aiming for a total overhaul or just want to tidy up a few areas, these decluttering ideas will help you achieve your goal.
1. Set a goal for how much you want to declutter – be realistic
Setting a realistic and manageable goal for decluttering your home is essential to creating an achievable plan. If your goals are too ambitious, you may become overwhelmed very quickly and will be less likely to stay motivated over time.
Instead, keeping your decluttering goal simple and organised makes it much more doable.
2. Start with one room at a time or one area of your home
When it comes to organising your home, the thought of tackling all of your clutter at once can be overwhelming. A good first step is to pick one room or area of your home and focus on that specific space. This helps you break up the work and makes it feel more manageable.
A good starting place is to declutter countertops and surfaces such as dressers, tables, and desks by removing knickknacks, paperwork or other items that are no longer needed. From there, you can create a plan of attack based on the room’s specific needs.
3. Throw away anything that is broken or damaged beyond repair
We all know how easy it is to keep things around that are broken or damaged beyond repair because of sentimental value, but it’s important to recognise that decluttering your home also includes getting rid of anything that won’t bring any use or joy in the long-run.
Throwing away damaged items can help make the space around you more inviting and functional. So when it comes to clutter-clearing, don’t be afraid to get rid of anything broken or damaged – it may be hard at first, but in the end, you’ll feel much better.
4. Organise what’s left so it’s easy to find and put away
After a long day of spring cleaning, it can be hard to keep track of what has been kept. To make life easier, take the remaining items and reorganise them in an efficient way so that it’s quick and easy to find and put away.
Begin by sorting items into categories, then group together anything closely related. Finally, create specific storage areas for each item or category so that everything is within reach and straightforward to return. With this approach, you’ll save time and effort every time you tidy up!
5. Use a self storage facility for items that need to be kept
If you have items that must be kept, but don’t necessarily have room for them in the house, self storage is an excellent solution. Self storage facilities like Incredible Bulk can provide a secure place to keep belongings while also freeing up space in your home.
You can either use short-term or long-term solutions depending on the items in question and the timeframe.
