We know decluttering can be a daunting task but with these following steps, it can be less of a challenge.
Not only does this help with time management, but it helps with knowing what to sort out during what time. Scheduling time can be beneficial because you can slowly build momentum with the time you have allocated. This helps to keep track of time, knowing exactly the time you will spend in the day decluttering.
Create a checklist!
Creating a checklist for your decluttering helps to know exactly what you need to focus on. It is easier to declutter when you have a visual representation of where you need to get started. Understanding that decluttering isn’t just a one-time project, having a checklist helps in focusing on a few things at a time.
Decide what to declutter
Choosing the space, you want to declutter can be helpful because this will give you perspective on how you want the area to look after decluttering. Plan your decluttering as this will help you identify the key parts of your home that will make you feel more refreshed once you are done.
Depending on what you prefer, some people might focus on smaller spaces to declutter, spaces like cupboards; shelves; or even drawers. Some people prefer starting with entire rooms. Once you see how your home looks after, it becomes easier to start decluttering more and choosing bigger rooms to declutter.
Make decluttering a seasonal task!
A seasonal declutter is a good way to keep your home clutter-free. Seasonal decluttering can take about an hour or two, by simply going into a room and thinking about what you didn’t use the previous seasons. This helps you to enter the new season free of clutter with a fresh and clutter-free home.
Don’t forget to reward yourself!
Decluttering can be a daunting task, so do not forget to reward yourself for clearing up piles of unnecessary items in your home. Organizing your home is not always fun, so you might as well give yourself a little good reward for getting a bit done for the day.
