8 Simple Steps To Declutter Your Home

So, you have decided to declutter your home. Congratulations! 

But where to start? Well, it is time for some organisation. Get out all of the big garbage bags and get ready for a long day.

Before you start, find a rubbish removal service provider to get ready. They’ll take care of the dirty work.

Here are eight simple steps on how to get started with your decluttering project.

Start by assessing your needs.

What are the areas of your house that need the most decluttering? Start there. Don't try to do everything at once. Tackle one room or one area at a time. Get rid of what you don't need, and organize what you do have so that it makes sense to you.

Set some limits for yourself.

Don't overdo it. If you're going to clean out your entire closet, set a limit for yourself as to how many pieces of clothing you will keep. Don't bring any new clothes into the house until you've gotten rid of enough old ones to make room for them.

Create piles of items to get rid of.

Throw away anything that's broken or unusable. This is probably the most painful part of getting rid of things, but it has to be done in order for you to keep your house in a manageable condition.

Let go of sentimental items and mementoes from the past.

Some people have a hard time letting go of old family heirlooms or souvenirs from their childhood, but if you don't really use them anymore, let them go. 

Think about how much room they're taking up and whether you would get rid of them if someone else had chosen them instead of you did when they were handed down to you many years ago. If not, then maybe it's time to say goodbye…

Be careful not to hold onto things just because they were expensive.

Do you have a brand new blender that's only been used twice? Do you have a top of the line vacuum cleaner sitting around gathering dust? Think about how many years it will be before your kids think of using these appliances – and then ask yourself if you would buy them again or if your family needs these items at all. 

Not everyone needs a gourmet kitchen with every single cooking appliance known to man, including a food dehydrator for making beef jerky.

Take an inventory of what you do use on a regular basis.

Once you've purged as much as possible from your home, take some time to take inventory of what you do use on a regular basis. You may find that you don't need as many things as you thought you did. 

And, if there are some items that you just can't live without, make sure they have a place to be stored, so they're easy to find when you need them.

Get rid of the stuff that takes up space but doesn't serve any real purpose.

Do you have a bunch of magazines from two years ago that you never got around to reading? How about an extra set of dishes that you only use once a year for Thanksgiving? If something doesn't have a purpose, get rid of it. 

You'll be amazed at how much extra space this will free up in your home.

Finally, be patient and consistent.

It's not going to happen overnight, but if you work at it gradually and consistently, you will declutter your home in no time. Just remember to take things one step at a time and don't get overwhelmed by the task at hand. 

Breaking it down into smaller tasks will make it less daunting and more manageable.

Good luck!
