You know the feeling. You're looking around your home, and you feel like there's too much stuff, but you can't find any inspiration to start decluttering. Do you have a cluttered and disorganized home that is driving you nuts? If so, then it may be time to declutter.
Decluttering your home can be a daunting task. It seems like there is never enough time in the day to get it done, and you have no idea where to start. Decluttering your home will not only make your space more organized and aesthetically pleasing but can also free up storage space for things that are more important to you.
The average American spends more than a year of their life searching for lost items. Imagine the time and energy you could save by decluttering your home. Decluttering your home is a daunting task. It's easy to get overwhelmed, which can lead to procrastination and excuses not to do it. But with the right tips, you can declutter your home faster than you thought possible.
1. Schedule a day or weekend to focus on decluttering your home
We've all been there. You wake up on a Saturday morning and find yourself with an entire day to spend cleaning. It's not that you don't want to clean. It's just that no one ever told you how long it would take or what needed to be done for your home to feel truly decluttered.
Decluttering is a difficult task because we have so much excess stuff in our homes. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to think about all of the things that we want to get rid of, but it's important to remember that decluttering should be an ongoing process and not something you do one day then forget about.
If you're like most people, your home is a reflection of who you are and what you care about. It can be overwhelming to realize that it's time to declutter and organize your space when everything around us feels so chaotic.
2. Start getting organized by sorting your clothes by season
The first step to getting organized is by sorting your clothes. Most people can find everything they need if their closet and dresser drawers are well-organized, but it's hard to do that when your clothes are all mixed up. One way of organizing your clothes is by season: Winter in one area, Spring in another, Summer over here, and Fall on the other side. If you're feeling really ambitious, then go ahead and separate colors too.
Have you ever found yourself digging through your closet in the middle of winter, pulling out a sweater that is now way too hot to wear? Maybe it's because you don't have enough clothes for all four seasons.
It's time to take a break from your hectic routine of trying to keep up with the laundry. You're not alone - this is one of the most common household tasks that people put off doing. The best way to get back on track is by sorting your clothes by season to ensure you are only washing what needs to be washed and when it needs to be washed.
3. Get rid of anything you haven't used or worn in the past year
If you're anything like me, your closet is bursting at the seams with clothes that are just sitting there. That's because I have a bad habit of buying things and then never wearing them. It's difficult to find what I want to wear in my closet because it's so full and cluttered.
One of the best ways to get organized is by getting rid of anything you haven't used or worn in the past year. Just go through everything and decide which items should be donated, which ones should be given away, and which ones can stay. Even if some things don't fit anymore or don't match your style now, they might come again down the road.
It's time to get rid of the old and start anew. This is your opportunity to clean out your closet, dresser drawers, and anywhere else in your house that holds clothes you haven't worn or used in over a year. It can be hard for many people to let go of clothing they've grown attached to over the years, but it's important not to hold on too tightly as this could lead them astray from their true style.
4. Sort remaining items into three piles: keep, donate, and throw away
I still have a lot of items in my house that I don't use. This includes clothes, kitchen supplies, and other odds and ends. Some things are useless to me now but could be useful to someone else, so I'm looking for the best way to get rid of them without feeling guilty.
Do you have a closet that's overflowing with clothing, shoes, and accessories? Take this opportunity to sort through your items and consider what is worth keeping. It can be easy to get caught up in the excitement of buying new clothes, but it's important to think about how many things we really use each day.
I recently moved into a new home, and I was faced with the daunting task of sorting through all my belongings. Being that I am not a hoarder, I found it relatively easy to separate items into three piles: keep, donate, or throw away.
5. Set aside 15 minutes each week to declutter so you can maintain a clean and organized home
It's often said that the average person spends 90% of their time in their home. Yet, most people don't enjoy spending time at home because it feels cluttered. The truth is that clutter can make you feel weighed down and stressed out - two feelings you're better off without.
It's hard to believe that just 15 minutes a week can make such a difference in your home. When you're occupied with work, errands, and family life, it may seem like there isn't enough time in the day for everything. But if you set aside one hour each weekday night after dinner followed by an hour on Saturday morning before everyone wakes up or goes out, cleaning is no longer something you need to worry about when it comes to the end of the week.
