Have you been meaning to give your space a deep clean? Do you want to get more organized before the holidays? It might be time to declutter.
And cleaning up around the house doesn’t have to be an overwhelming project. You can take your time going room by room to purge and put away all your belongings slowly.
Not sure where to start? Follow this guide to decluttering your home.
First, remember to take it one step at a time.
Set a timer for 30 minutes, then focus on one area of your home. Maybe you’ve been meaning to clean up your entryway or reorganize your closet. Work only in your chosen space instead of trying to tackle your whole house at once.
Sort and Label
Once you’ve picked your area, sort your items into three piles:
- Keep what you need, such as important documents and sentimental items
- Donate what you don’t use, including clothing and furniture
- Toss or repurpose broken and torn items
After you’ve made your donation pile, it’s time to organize what’s left behind. This could require new shelving or storage baskets. The important thing is that you’re able to find your belongings (and keep them organized) more easily from now on.
Nothing feels better than a newly decluttered home. Sweep or vacuum the floor, clean surfaces and organize as you go through each room.
A decluttered home is more comfortable and may be easier to maintain. After tending to your space, you might also work on updating your home inventory list.
