1) Set a goal.

 

The first step to decluttering your home is to set a goal. What do you want to accomplish? Do you want to declutter your entire house or just one room? How much time do you have to devote to this project? Once you have answered these questions, you can set some realistic goals. For example, if you only have a few hours to spare each week, focus on decluttering one room at a time. Don’t try to tackle everything all at once or you will quickly become overwhelmed and discouraged.

 

If your goal is to declutter your entire house, start with the most cluttered rooms. Frequently, these are the bedrooms, living room, and kitchen. Once you have decluttered these rooms, you can move on to the other areas of your house, such as the basement or garage.

 

2) Get rid of anything that doesn’t bring you joy.

 

One of the main principles of decluttering is to get rid of anything that doesn’t bring you joy. Let it go if you are holding onto something because you think you “should” or because it has sentimental value, but it doesn’t make you happy! It’s okay to get rid of things, even if they hold sentimental value. You can always take a picture of the item or keep it in a memory box. The important thing is that you are only surrounding yourself with things that make you happy and serve a purpose in your life.

 

3) Consider renting a storage unit.

 

If you are decluttering your home, you may find that you have a lot of things that you want to keep but don’t necessarily have a place in your home. In this case, consider renting one of many available storage facilities. This will allow you to keep the items without finding a place for them in your home. Just make sure that you only rent a storage unit for things you know you will use again in the future. Otherwise, it’s just wasting money!

 

Renting a storage unit is also a good option if you are decluttering your home but aren’t quite ready to get everything. You can put all of the non-essential items in storage and then gradually go through and get rid of them as you have time.

 

These are just a few tips to help you start your decluttering journey. Remember, the important thing is to take it one step at a time and only keep things that bring you joy. If you follow these tips, you will be well on your way to having a clutter-free home in no time!
