Read our Quick Tricks For An Uncluttered Home.
1. Ensure everything you own has value
This point is very simple. If you wouldn’t grab it if your house was on fire, it probably doesn’t have much worth. If an item has been sitting, collecting dust for an extended period of time, maybe it’s time to bin it.
2. Every item needs its own space
Sitting items down on the table or coffee table can create piles of mess and confusion. You won’t ever lose anything if it has a home.
3. Focus on one thing at a time
Multitasking is meant to help you get more things done at a quicker rate, but when you try to do 20 things at once, nothing gets finished and a mess ensues. Trying to de-clutter your home means simplifying your life, so simplify your approach to being organised too.
4. Where will it live when I’m not using it?
Holiday decorations, off-season clothes, stationary (the list goes on). It’s great to have a use for something in the present, but it’s just as important to have a plan on where it will go when it’s not being used. Ensure you have adequate storage space for these items throughout the year.
5. Start small
If this all seems too overwhelming, go back to basics. By taking baby steps you will soon start to see that your home looks much more organised. Start with a shelf, a stack of magazines or a pile of toys for example. Work in 15 to 30 minute increments and ensure you have at least 5 minute breaks in between. Slow and steady wins the race when it comes to Quick Tricks For An Uncluttered Home.
