Simple Tips for Decluttering Your Home

Are you afraid to open that hall closet door for fear that piles of objects will come tumbling out? Does your kitchen counter look like you are auditioning for an episode of hoarders? If so, then it is probably time to think about decluttering your home.

Anytime is a good time to declutter your home when the clutter gets more than you can bear. However, the very best time to declutter your home is while you are  doing a major cleaning such as spring cleaning so that your home is  truly cleaned and organized from top to bottom.

When to Declutter

Start from one area/corner! Although there is no one spot that is best when trying to declutter your  home I would suggest that you start from one area/room and work your  way through.

Where to Start Declutering

You also need to get somewhat organized before you actually dig in. The  best way to get started is by getting large bins or boxes you will use  to collect things you no longer need. These bins should be labelled: – Throw out – Give to Relatives – Sell – Donate – Recycle

Get Your Boxes/Bin Bags Ready

Declutter your closet and drawers, getting rid of clothes, shoes, purses and other items you no longer use or need.

Decluttering Your Bedroom

Your living room normally does get filled up with items that need to be tossed or given away. Pick up items and put them away where they belong. Keep only the most current magazines and finding a permanent home for various items that belong in the living room such as  the remote, and other such items.

Decluttering this space can be a real challenge since these areas are  often packed floor to ceiling with things you’ve saved to use later. You’ll need to remove everything from this room and sort those things  you really want to keep, those items that are still good that you no longer need and those items that you really need to dispose of.

Decluttering Your Storage Closet

The garage is where everything in your home that doesn’t exactly have  a place to go in the house or you simply do not have time to put away  the right way goes. The first thing you should do when you go to declutter your garage is to hunt down these items.
