Do you cringe when you have an unexpected guest, just because you have a messy and cluttered home? The piles of dust-collecting items and dirty clothes are a representation of who you are as a person and what kind of lifestyle you lead.
By following the tips below, you will soon find decluttering your home an enjoyable part of your daily routine.
Whether you are in your cleaning session or not, it’s extremely important to always pick up items to ensure a clean environment. Leaving items around (such as a sock on the floor) will promote others to follow suit. Check out Simplymaid (for home cleaning in Australia) for easy professional as well as DIY cleaning tips to keep your home tidy all the time.
In case you’re finding it difficult to maintain a consistent decluttering routine for you, try to reward yourself through any of the means that you find good, for instance, treat for all the room that you successfully declutter.
Collect and label bags
Gather a number of boxes or baskets and label them according to what kind of items are laying around your home. Examples here include “give away”, “throw out” and “return to where they belong”. This organization makes sure that one will not constantly go back and forth, which can potentially confuse and also put you off-track.
Do not leave rooms unfinished
If you start the decluttering process of your room, make sure that you always finish it prior to moving onto another. Doing so will allow you to clean at your own pace.
If you have time, try to plan where you are going to declutter and what order you are going to work your way throughout the house. You should work in the order which seems most logical according to your home’s layout.
Declutter Your Home Systematically
When you decide to declutter you need to do so systematically. If you simply dive in and start to unpack boxes, you may finish with a bigger mess than what you started and become extremely discouraged by the entire process!
As you start to organize your home, settle on a system that will allow you to group objects into categories and place them aside, to be reintroduced to the home once the bulk of the mess has been cleared. There are a number of inexpensive and professional guides that can give you this information on the best way to declutter your home in a systematic and planned way rather than a chaotic and haphazard way.
Organize, Organize, Organize
Sorting your items into plastic bins or containers can be a lifesaver. Mark these containers clearly and precisely “clothes”, “mail”, “shoes” or whatever other items you may be storing. Remember to start a pile of “discard items”. For instance clothes you no longer wear can be donated to charity or sold on sites such as eBay for extra cash.
When it comes to learning to declutter your home… the process time can vary. The important thing is to do it in your own time and in your own way… when you do, you are sure to create a place that is truly home sweet home
