Take it one room at a time

The thought of spending days and weeks clearing out your home can seem daunting. So, to make some headway, start small. Focus on one room at a time. Spending just half an hour here and there can start to make a dent in the look and feel of the space.

Create categories

Decluttering doesn’t mean you have to get rid of absolutely everything – quite the opposite. You’ll want to keep some items, and others can be donated or sold. The absolute easiest way to organise this is by categorising everything. Make four piles – keep, donate, sell or bin. Unless you’re particularly ruthless with items, it might take days, weeks or months to organise everything. However, the timescale isn’t essential as long as you move in the right direction.

Organise your wardrobe

Decluttering your entire home can feel like a mammoth task. So, why not start with your wardrobe. Most people don’t hold quite the same value to clothing as they do furniture and home items. So, this will help you start your decision-making process. Looking realistically at whether you’ll wear the item or, in fact, even like it any more will give you the confidence to move on to more treasured pieces around the home. Some of your clothes may even be worth money, check out our guide on how to generate extra income from selling bits oyu don’t need anymore!

Ask a friend to help

Decluttering and organising a home can be an emotional process. So, sometimes you need an unbiased view on how much decluttering your home needs. Ask a friend to help clear out a room and get an honest opinion on the space. If you need further assistance, hire the services of a professional home organiser. They will guide you through the process and help you obtain a clutter-free space. You can even get invovled in the national home organising week 4th – 10th November for a bit added inspiration.

Purchase useful storage

Storage is always a great way to organise and tidy everything you want to keep. But, choosing the proper storage will ensure it works in the room rather than make it look more cluttered. You could also opt for in-cupboard or in-wardrobe storage, such as hanging compartments. These small additions utilise the space inside better so you can store more items.

Self Storage

Use clever space-saving ideas and techniques

Decluttering isn’t just about throwing things away – it’s about using the space to its potential. Consider space-saving ideas such as vacuum-pack bags, stacking boxes or furniture with hidden storage to hide things you want to keep but don’t immediately need.

Put on your favourite playlist

The task of decluttering can feel overwhelming at first. However, putting on your favourite music is a great way to get you in the mood to organise. This will help you focus and make the whole process more enjoyable.
