Simple Plan for Decluttering Your Entire Home

The Simple, Easy to Use Generic Plan for Decluttering Your Home

RYouReadytoOrganize?

 

Honestly, who likes decluttering their home (well, actually, I do!)?  It can be the most mundane part of our lives and not the most fun according to our brains. Or is it? People need freedom but also, structure. I mean, look at children. They require it to become functional happy thriving adults. But we adults need this to free the clutter from our environment and our minds. This gives us the room and freedom to do the few so very important things that matter the most to us. Decluttering Your Home does not have to be a daunting task but something simple that you do on a regular basis.

Here is my take on a simple classic structure that I use to help others (and myself) declutter the home. Subscribe to receive free a free morning and evening routine checklist and free organizing tips and tools every week or two directly to your inbox!
 

Start Decluttering Your Home Now

  1. Don’t procrastinate. Be kind to yourself. Give yourself slack. Come on, we all try to declutter and keep organized but life gets in the way.
  2. Don’t wait for the crisis-do it-with feeling, intention and intuition. You are the expert at organizing yourself.
  3. Prepare to Declutter

Where to begin? The laundry area must be ready when you purge. The cleaning supplies must be there to clean the first area. Then pick one small area to declutter. Do this before you think about organizing. What will you use now and in the future and what items do you really love? Put all items out to decide what you love and keep and what goes. 

 

The First Area to Declutter-A Small Area Please!

  1. Start and finish the first small area. Don’t go any further until it is done. Spend a half hour a day (or more if you get excited) on this area until it is done. Only concentrate on one small manageable area at a time.
  2. Celebrate the first area. Congratulate yourself on a job well done. Do something that celebrates this accomplishment. Something you love to do. Pamper yourself.

 

Your Vision

Envision your new surroundings. Write down your exact vision of what an organized home looks like to you. Spend time doing this. Draw a picture and list what is so important there. What you love and will use the most.

 

Prioritize What Areas You Will Declutter

  1. Make a list of what areas by importance that you will declutter. Spend time on only one at a time and spend a half hour a day (or more if possible, but not required) decluttering this area putting everything out and deciding what you love and what will go. Everyone is different. A suggested flow may be:
  2. Closet, then the bathroom(s) then the bedroom(s) then the kitchen and then the den and then the living room and then the garage and then the basement….
  3. Celebrate each area that you have decluttered. It feels good and you should express that.

 

Pat Yourself on the Back

Scan your surroundings and see what changes have happened to you, your behavior and your feelings about what you have done and what has come of the new organized environment. You are on your way!!

      Thanks Jodie. Decluttering can be emotionally trying so lots of self assurance is key.

This post will be short and sweet. I want to follow-up on my last post Organizing the Basement. As I mentioned in that post, sorting your belongings into quadrants or corners in the basement by Toss, Donate, Sell or Keep. Read more here https://buff.ly/2xjjMyk

I have a client who wants to #organize her entire home. That's her basement in the featured picture. I'm very excited to see someone who is psyched to organize their entire house. She had a house fire a few weeks ago.  It should take about 6 months to complete the home repairs so that she can move back in. And when she does, all of her stuff will come with her and all of it needs weeding and #organizing. https://buff.ly/2eRz8QP

  • Get that pantry ready for the holidays Yes, the holidays are two months away. Unbelievable. I would be remiss if I did not start the holiday prep cycle with cleaning out your pantry and kitchen drawers. So it's time to get that pantry ready for the holidays. First things first-Weed! Go through your entire pantry. I have a small kitchen, so my pantry is a nice armoire that I bought at some years ago. [  374 more words ]⠀
