Clear the Clutter: One Month to Clutter Free
As we kick off a new year many of us are resolving to do better and be better in the year ahead. If creating a more cozy and clutter-free space is on your must-do list this year, this blog is for you! We've rounded up the top tips to creating a clutter-free home. Let’s get started!
Start With the Bedroom
The bedroom is often a place full of clutter, clothes and distractions. And a clutter-free bedroom offers a place to relax and unwind.
To start your decluttering journey, begin with your bedroom by removing items that don't belong there or that you no longer need. This can include clothing, old magazines, shoes, etc. Once you have removed these items, you can begin to organize and store the items that remain.
Organize Your Closet
Take some time to sort through your closet and remove anything that hasn't been worn in over a year or that no longer fits. Donate unwanted clothing to local charities or consignment shops – they will thank you!
Organize your closet using an organization system that works for you. This may include putting items in color-coordinated piles, organizing by type of clothing, or creating a designated place for each item. Once everything is organized, take some time to clean out the closet or drawers completely to make sure it looks its best.
Create a Donation Pile:
As you declutter your home, create a donation pile with any items that are no longer of use to you but could be useful for someone else. Before donating these items, do some research on local charities or organizations that may accept them and offer to volunteer at the same place if possible.
De-Clutter the Kitchen
The kitchen is another room in your home that can easily become cluttered with utensils, cookware, and gadgets. To de-clutter the kitchen, start by organizing all of your pots, pans, and other cookware into drawers or on shelves. Then remove any items that are no longer in use.
Streamline Your Home Office
If your desk is covered with paper, pens and other office supplies, take some time to organize it. Make sure that any important documents or items you need on a daily basis can be easily accessed and stored away when not in use. Get rid of anything that has become obsolete or that is no longer needed.
Declutter Your Living Room
The living room is the place in the house where family and friends gather and share stories, so it’s important to keep it clutter-free. Begin by sorting through any items that are not being used or are adding to the mess in your living room. Donate any furniture, books or magazines that are no longer of use to you. Finally, organize the items in your living room by categories such as books, decorations and games so that they can easily be found when needed.
Tackle Those Drawers
Drawers often become cluttered with unnecessary items. Take some time to go through those drawers and get rid of anything that’s not needed. If you find items that still have value, donate them or consider selling them at a yard sale.
Get Rid of Unused Electronics
Many homes are filled with outdated electronics such as old cell phones, computers and printers. Take some time to go through your electronics and separate out any items that are no longer of use. Consider donating these electronics to a local school or charity.
Conquer those kids' spaces
Kids' bedrooms and playrooms can get cluttered quickly, so make sure you go through their toys and clothes regularly. Donate any items that are no longer being used or consider selling them online or at a garage sale if they are still in good condition.
It's also helpful to create an organization system for toys and books that is easy for your little ones to follow when they are helping to clean up or are tasked with putting their toys away themselves.
