Target areas to declutter

You cannot expect to declutter the complete house in one go. The best way is to begin with targeting specific areas of your house that requires decluttering. Once you have decided the areas make a list of items that aren’t much in your use.

 

 

Flat surfaces should be decluttered first

Tables, counter tops and shelves when comprising of clutter can be obvious to any guest visiting your home. Hence you must first start to declutter flat surfaces.

 

Don’t scatter the junk on the floor, use a basket

Scattering the junk materials on the floor will only confuse you thus you should instead get a basket to put all the junk in it. This will also create less of a mess and by putting your junk in the basket you can also carry out the decluttering process for the next day again.

Keep similar things together by using drawers

The easiest way to find what you need is to categorize your stuffs according to their uses. For instance, keep all the books together in a shelf, your clothes can be categorized according to their colours, and according to the kind of event you can wear them at.

 

Use boxes to keep the small items

Small boxes act like mini treasures in which you can keep the small items from mobile accessories to jewelry items.

There will be certain boxes at your home that are filled with rarely used objects hence you might be opening them once or twice a year. You can stack them over one another to give more space to your home. It can also act as a cute decorum for your room.

    These are great tips! Ever since I had my daughter I find it very challenging to keep up with the clutter! I will work on getting more storage containers IA.

    These are some great tips! I normally don’t keep my home cluttered. I have seen many houses with kids that are messy but I just can’t stand the mess so I just clean it immediately.

    These are fantastic tips! I’m in a constant decluttering phase in my house and I need to get out of it. I feel like I am running around decluttering all the time! Will it ever end? Maybe when the kids get married? Only about 18 more years to go!

    Great tips! I use lot of baskets and boxes to declutter. I also hang number of multi layer storage bags inside my wardrobe (attached to the wardrobe door). Yet, with little kids my home turns into mess in no time. Little ones do help me in cleaning up the toys but it is not going to be the same arrangement. Things often get misplaced.

    Decluttering is something we should do more often. I would love to read more such posts.
