6 Easy Steps to Declutter Your House Today

Step 1: Make a decluttering list for each room of your house. 

Step 2: Start with a quick walk-through of the room and get rid of anything that doesn’t fit.

Step 3: Sort what’s left into three piles: Junk or trash, keep it, put it back where you found it. Use a kid’s toy box or large storage bin for the items in this pile.

Step 4: Sort what’s left into two piles: Keep those items that really bring joy to your life and put them on display somewhere in your home, like above an entryway table or next to a window sill. Put what you want to sell on eBay or Amazon on this pile and take them out.

Step 5: Consider moving those items that are currently taking up space in your home by moving them to a storage unit to make more space and make your home look less cluttered. 

Step 6: Consider donating items that you no longer need to secondhand stores.
