What to Get Rid Of

Unnecessary items at homeGetting rid of unnecessary items might be hard at the beginning, but it will definitely pay off after you’re done. Most of us tend to hold on to objects that don’t serve any purpose, but we have the feeling that we might need them at some point.

These are the worst enemies of a tidy home. Take all items that you are not using and are simply taking up space, and find the best way to get rid of them, like donating them for example, if they are in good condition.

The less unnecessary items you own, the better you will feel at home.

The Right Place for Everything

A good trick is to have a space for everything, so that you can easily put away things after you’re done using them. Find a spot for every object, and make sure it stays there when it’s not being used.

You can do this with the help of different kinds of organizers and even label them, so that you know when your stuff is and you can easily find it when you need it.

This is a good tip also because tidying up will be a lot easier and faster in case things have gotten a bit more chaotic than usual, for example if you’ve had guests.

The One Touch Rule

That is the rule about putting things away each time after you use them. A lot of people tend to leave things untidied and not put them back in their place, and leave that for later.

However, later there will be more than one items to put away, and cleaning will take much more time. It might also start looking like a tedious job, which would make you procrastinate even more.

Just after you are done using something, put it in its right place and there will be no trouble.

Daily Decluttering Time

Daily declutteringThe path to success is taken in small steps. Don’t leave all the cleaning for one certain day, when it would take you hours and hours to complete.

Instead, set a daily time for decluttering. It doesn’t have to be long – 15 to 20 minutes are enough to tidy up everything that is not in its right place.

That might sound like something small, but it will have in immense effect on the way you feel at home, and it will bring peace to your mind. Always remember that small steps do a great job.

Go Easy on Sales

Sales are a blessing and a curse. They allow us to get things we need at a much lower price, which is great. However, they also make us want to buy more stuff, even ones that we don’t need.

Don’t go to sales if you are not looking for anything specific that will have a purpose in your home. That way you won’t have to throw out things in a few weeks, because they’re taking up space without being useful.

Think carefully before you’re purchasing any items, not only at sales, but in general. Be mindful about the things you own.

The Thing About Organizers

Organizers do magic when it comes to decluttering. That is their whole purpose after all.

However, stacking your home with too many organization products will have the same effect as stuffing it with too much unnecessary items, and you will be back at where you started.

These items also take up space and you will eventually start feeling boxed in.

Only purchase those types of organizers that will really have an important purpose in creating a right place for each item you own. Before going to the store make a plan and a list of what exactly you need and stick to it.
