Simple Ways to Easily Declutter Your Home

Decluttering your home does not have to be overwhelming. In fact, most people believe this myth. Even the most cluttered home can’t stand up to simple, daily small acts of decluttering. The clutter begins to dissolve before your eyes and your motivation becomes stronger and stronger. You become more and more accustomed to just automatically declutter small areas of your home a little at a time. Your mindset changes and you get it-there are simple ways to declutter your home! You can start to envision the home that you always wanted.

 

The Mindset Shift

 

The decluttered mindset is a lifestyle choice. It’s a simple routine taken in small steps. Pulling things apart and putting them back together again does not happen overnight.  I don’t like to have more and more things lying around. I like space. Space to live comfortably in my home. Imagine rediscovering all of those things that you truly love when you begin to declutter. The excitement builds when you find those important things you bought to use each day or on a regular basis. I buy things to not only feel better, but to use them-a lot. That is one reason that I love to declutter. I bought those things to use often. Not to just lie around or get tossed into the back of the closet. They are supposed to make my life easier and fulfill my needs. Time to start using simple ways to declutter your home.

The Hardest Step

 

Little by little, your home becomes cluttered over a period of time and you become overwhelmed and give up because you are mentally and physically exhausted. You may try spending the weekend decluttering the entire house. Here is the hitch. The first sweep in decluttering is the hardest. That first 15 minutes can be the most challenging. If we stick with it, the momentum builds and we continue a little at a time. We need to get our arms around things that can be emotional and personal. Those tasks are always the hardest. Those folks that have decluttered homes deal with a little bit each day so it does not take over their lives.

 

The Facts-Lift Stages

  • Most people go to trade school or college
  • Most build a family
  • Have children or like me become step parents
  • Buy things for their home, children and relatives
  • Rarely purge things
  • Then the children buy things. A lot of things.
  • They then go to school and you get to store these things
  • Our parents may need care and you adopt some or all of their things
  • It goes on and on…….

Three Bits of Advice-Simple Ways to Declutter Your Home

 

  1. Start SMALL! Declutter only one and only one area of your home at a time.
  2. Think POSITIVE! Be kind to yourself. Don’t tell yourself that you are a bad or terrible person for having a cluttered home. Life happens and we all accumulate things over time. Marriage, children, grandchildren etc. Unexpected life events can also cause chaos and clutter.
  3. COMMIT! Commit to decluttering one area each day. Schedule the time to declutter each day. I do this after my water and coffee first thing in the morning for 30 minutes. It becomes a comfortable habit. And I love how it looks and feels when I get done. Just 30 minutes-you and your home are worth it!

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
  • Organizing Basements-a real live demo!⠀
⠀
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 ]⠀
