Start off Small If You Need To
You might be scared to start decluttering your entire home if it’s currently in chaos. Don’t panic. Just start off small and slowly work your way up as you feel ready. For example, clear out a clutter draw and keep that tidy to begin with. You can then expand your clutter free zones to the room the draw is in, and so on and so forth. You don’t have to tackle your entire home in a day. Give yourself a realistic timeframe.
Get Rid Of Something Every Day
This might sound strange, but the people who have the tidiest, most stress free lives tend to get rid of something every day. It can be something small, like a letter you’ve kept for no reason, or something bigger, like an appliance you no longer use. Ask yourself what you can get rid of, and set yourself a rule that if you bring something new into your home, you have to get rid of something else first to make the space for it.
Don’t Go It Alone
It can be really tough to get rid of junk all on your own, especially if there’s a lot of it. If you need some professional help disposing of junk then make sure you research your area for people who specialize in things like this, such as an expert rubbish removal service. A professional removal company will know how to get rid of your things in a way that isn’t harmful to the environment, too. If you need help from family and friends, make sure you get them on board. They should be happy to help you clear out your life.
Think Carefully Before Bringing Something New Into Your Home
No more impulse buying. You must think carefully before bringing something new into your home. Keep an eye on it for a while rather than buying straight away, and if you still think you need it after a month or so, you can get it. Try to adopt a more minimalist lifestyle in the meantime.
Get Into A Good Routine
Get into a good routine where you tidy and clean a little every day. For example, monday you could do the floors, tuesday the windows, wednesday tidy the junk, and so on and so forth. You could even do it room by room – whatever feels best to you.
Hopefully this guide has helped you to declutter your life – have fun!
