Start Now With These 6 Decluttering Tips

Here are 6 helpful tips on how to start decluttering your home today:

Decluttering Tip #1

Start decluttering in the area you live in the most. This can be your living room, kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom. The idea behind this is to declutter the area you spend most of your time in first – so that way it’s easier for you to maintain and keep less clutter overall! For this example, we are going to use a bedroom closet.

Decluttering Tip #2

Begin sorting items into categories. For example, if you’re decluttering your clothing, sort them into piles of t-shirts, dress shirts, jeans, and skirts.

Decluttering Tip #3

Once everything is sorted into categories, start decluttering one category at a time. Go through the items in your clothing pile and remove any that are old, stained, or don’t fit anymore. Put the items that you no longer want to keep into another pile to donate or throw away. Continue sorting until all piles are completed.

Decluttering Tip #4

Color coordinating your items will make it easier to find the items you need. This is very optional but is an idea that has been proven to work.

Decluttering Tip #5

Consider getting storage solutions such as better shelving and containers. These will help keep things organized so you can find what you need quickly!

Decluttering Tip #6

Labels are an excellent way to stay organized. Place labels on the front of bins, baskets, or containers to tell what is inside. Labels are an optional choice but definitely recommended for those that easily get unorganized.

Congratulations! You are done decluttering your clothes!
