Ultimately, we all have clutter—whether we like to admit it or not. In fact, there are a lot of easy and effective ways to hide all that clutter taking up your home. It’s now become a proven fact that when our homes and spaces are neat and uncluttered, we can find ourselves being more productive and energized overall. As a result, making decluttering a priority can have a massive shift in your life. Here are some tips to get you started on your decluttering journey.
Get Rid Of It Altogether
A lot of people are not big fans of this step. It can be tough for many homeowners to declutter and rid their homes of the things that they’ve been holding onto for many, many years. However, once you take this big step, you can expect to feel instantly better and lighter overall. Look at all the items you’ve been keeping over the years. How many are sentimental? How many are necessary? Do they even bring you joy? The general rule of thumb should always be that an item should serve one of three purposes: you need the item, it brings you joy, or it’s sentimental. You must be able to answer yes to at least two of those questions before you can keep it. Otherwise, it has to go.
Get A Proper Container
Once you’ve finally gotten rid of the items that no longer serve you, it is time to organize the things that you’ve decided to keep in your home. You’ll have to get out baskets, crates, or boxes to ensure that all your items can be stored in a proactive way. Having baskets in your home is the best way to declutter your home. Think about it: for shoes, you can have a separate basket so they’re easy to grab when getting ready in the morning. You can always have a basket dedicated to your comfy and cozy blankets. For quick cleanups, keep a basket at the bottom of the stairs and another at the top.
