6 Steps to Declutter Your Home


Are you tired of living in a home that is filled with clutter? Do you need more space to go about your daily activities? You may prefer the option of clearing out the clutter with friends or family. However, the fact that you may not do it alone does not make it any easy process.

Before you get daunted by the task at hand, you should know that several people face the same thing and also get confused about how to go about it. Those who plan to put their house on sale even have a tougher time since they have to ensure that it looks spacious for buyers interested in viewing the house.

Nonetheless, you don’t have to despair as there are easier ways you can make the decluttering process a breeze. With that in mind, here are six easy steps to make some extra space in your home without having to break a sweat.

1. Self Storage
An effective way to create more space in your home is to get rid of all the items and materials you do not use regularly. Perfect examples are winter clothes that you only wear during the season or furniture you only use during Christmas.

All these things inadvertently take up space, and the best way to do away with them is to place them in self-storage. This way, you get to make much-needed room in your home with relative ease. The best part is, self-storage prices are not over the top, so you’ll be decluttering at pocket-friendly prices.

2. A Step at a Time
The mistake several people make is trying to declutter their whole property at once. This can cause confusion, fatigue, and general frustration when it seems like you’re not getting anywhere. What you can do instead is to take a step at a time.

Rather than going all out, start work on one room and clean it out as best you can. For example, if you work on your bedroom first, you’ll get a sense of accomplishment, and you’ll move on to other rooms in the house with that same positive attitude.

3. Get Help
The decluttering process can be tasking if you decide to take it on by yourself. You can get help from cleaning companies, such as 1300rubbish or you could ask family members. 

You may decide that family help is best for sentimental areas of the house since they’ll help you select what to discard without touching items that might be useful to other members.

For example, you wouldn’t want to tamper with clothes and toys from your kids’ room. To avoid a potentially terrible situation, you can ask them to pick out the items that can be discarded instead.

4. Take out Excess Furniture
Usually, excessive furniture in your home gives it a cluttered look. When this happens, several people find it hard to clear out the furniture due to sentimental reasons. That said, you should take out excess furniture to make your home look a lot less cluttered.

You could clear out coffee tables, shelves, or other units that are full of rubbish.

5. Clear Your Wardrobe
Your wardrobe is an important place to work on. When you do, you realize that you have a bunch of clothes you do not wear, and this will create clutter. Since it’s your wardrobe, it shouldn’t be too much work. All you have to do is sort through the clothes you want to keep and create a donation pile. This way, you’ll be reducing clutter and also giving back to the community.

6. Donate, Recycle or Set Up a Yard Sale
The items you consider clutter will probably function better in someone else’s life. Items such as clothes, shoes, and furniture can be donated or sold if you set up a yard sale. You could also drop off glass, paper, or plastic in your recycle bin.

With these decluttering techniques, you’ll have peace knowing that some things you no longer need are going to be useful in someone else’s home. The best part is, you get to make cool cash if they’re sold.

Decluttering your home is a tough nut to crack. Besides the workload, the sentiment attached to discarding household items can draw you back. However, you can have a relatively easy process if you use our six tips. Try it out today!
