Do you feel like your home is a cluttered mess? Is there never enough room to do anything because of the piles of clutter that have taken over your house? If this sounds familiar, it’s time to take action. In this blog post, we will discuss four tips on how to declutter and organize your home so you can regain some much-needed space!
1 It’s essential to throw away unused items
Start by getting rid of what you don’t need anymore and organize the few things left in a way that makes sense for your lifestyle. This will help cut down on clutter even further! If there is an item you haven’t used in over one year, it’s safe to say you won’t use it again anytime soon, so get rid of it too! Remember to keep anything sentimental if this applies, but everything else should be donated or thrown away.
As mentioned before, organizing is vital when decluttering your home so take some time out each day (or week) to sort through the various rooms in your house.
2 Donate clothing you don’t wear
Do you have clothes in your wardrobe with the tags still on them? Or maybe some items have never even been worn. Clothing is another item to donate or throw out if it hasn’t been used in over a year, so start clearing this clutter too! If you need new clothing, visit our blog post for tips on shopping for sustainable fashion options that won’t break the bank! You can also save money by recycling old t-shirts into preppy pillowcases with just two snips of scissors.
These are great gift ideas as well since they’re unique and eco-friendly.
3 Store valuable items in a storage unit
Consider renting a storage unit if you have many items that aren’t being used but can’t donate either because they are too big or still in good condition. This way, your valuables will be protected from weather and vermin as well as safe from theft. Large storage units come with many different options, so do some research before deciding to rent one based on price alone, it’s usually better to opt for a larger unit which you can share with family or friends.
If you’re looking for an eco-friendly solution to decluttering and organizing your home (and life), use reusable grocery bags and sustainable cleaning products! You’ll feel better knowing what’s coming into contact with your family is free of toxic chemicals while also saving money at the same time!
4 Keep to a regular cleaning schedule
When you free up time by decluttering your home, it’s essential to keep this newfound space tidy. One way of doing so is keeping a regular cleaning schedule where the entire house gets cleaned once per week, and each room receives tidied on a daily basis. Even if some areas are straightening up while others need more work, these small tasks will add up in the long run! When possible, use reusable products instead of disposable ones when cleaning your home or life!
You can even make homemade cleaners using vinegar, baking soda, essential oils & castile soap.
Decluttering your home will help you feel more at peace and give you a more meaningful sense of freedom. Remember to donate or throw away what is no longer needed, store anything valuable in a storage unit and keep up with a regular cleaning schedule!
