Decluttering your home is certainly a tedious task that takes much time and effort. The worst part of all is that even after you spend hours going through things, you end up with a pile of clothes and objects that you simply can't throw out. Typically you get rid of a little part of the unnecessary staff and in the process decide to keep most of it – not the best strategy for a streamlined home.
Now may be your time to start getting serious about downsizing. Even though this may sound like an easy thing to do, once you start doing the cleaning and the organisation you will find out that it's not. Focus only on the important items and throw out everything else you won't need in the future. Speed up the process with these tips:
Sort through everything The decluttering process will be faster if you designate different boxes for the things which you plan to toss out, the things you plan to keep and one more for things which you can donate or give away. This simple system will help you sort through your things faster.
Toss out the old clothes The hardest thing for some people is to part with is clothes, mainly because they are memory holders. This can be such an issue that in the end nothing gets downsized. Don't get distracted by putting on old dresses and other clothes – it takes time and brings on nostalgia. Just give each piece a quick look and make a snap decision.
Donate the baby stuff or give them to a friend who can use them. They aren’t getting any use in a box in the attic.
Don't keep old appliances You probably got new ones because they old ones are broken. They take up lots of space and use lots of electricity. Go on your local municipality website for proper disposal channels.
Approach the big job of decluttering room by room and you will find that with commitment and decisive action you can clear the clutter and enjoy your home more.
