A space that is cluttered, messy and unloved can quickly make many of us feel overwhelmed, anxious and defeated. After all, who wants to relax and unwind in a room that is cluttered?
If you’re looking to declutter your home but don’t know where to start, you’ve certainly landed in the right place! Here are our top tips for decluttering your home.
Allowing you to get organised, with minimum stress, these tips will have your home in shape in no time at all.
Allocate a set amount of time each day to declutter each room
Rome wasn’t built in a day. When it comes to decluttering your home, it’s better to make your way through your decluttering tasks in stages, rather than trying to tackle it all at once. If you take on too much at once, you risk feeling overwhelmed and giving up at the first hurdle.
Give items away
Just because you don’t use an item anymore, doesn’t mean that it can’t be loved by someone else. With this in mind, don’t be afraid to give items away that you no longer need. Whether you pass them on to family or friends or donate items to your local charity shop, they are sure to be much appreciated. And the chances are, you’ll feel better about getting rid of some of your clutter if it’s going to a good home.
Donate clothes you never wear
The vast majority of us keep clothes that we no longer wear. If you haven’t worn an item in the past 6 months, you should consider donating it. This will not only free up much-needed space, but it will also make you feel good too! You can also sell clothes online via platforms such as eBay and Depop.
Tick off your decluttering checklist
It’s a lot easier to declutter your home when you have a plan of action to follow. So, create a decluttering checklist and tick off each task as you go along – you won’t believe how satisfying it is!
Take before and after photos
When you’re in the process of decluttering your home, it can often seem like you aren’t making much progress, when you really are. Taking before and after photos is a great way to monitor your progress and it can be incredibly motivating to see just how far you have come.
Put your items in storage
Remember that decluttering doesn’t mean that you need to dispose of your favourite items completely. If you need to free up some space in your home, there’s always the option to store your belongings in a storage facility, where you can keep them safe and sound until you need them again.
