Ideas to Help Declutter

  1. Set aside a specific amount of time each day. 5 minutes or 10 minutes at a given time will allow you to work on each room without feeling too overwhelmed. If you feel a burst of energy, you can always declutter for a longer period of time. Having a daily goal will allow you to remain on task.
  2. Start with one room or space. There may be many areas that need focus, but working through one room until it meets your expectations offers a great sense of accomplishment.
  3. If you have not used it in a while, donate it. Try not to hang onto everything. You will find clothes and other items that have not been worn or used for some time. Put these in boxes or bags for charity. If it is not worthy of donating, put it in trash bags to throw away. Recycle what is possible.
  4. Use social media to advertise big ticket items you may no longer want.  If you are thinking to declutter by removing furniture, kitchen appliances, comforters, etc, social media is a great way to get the word out. Take pictures and post detailed description to help get things moving. Word of mouth travels quickly.
  5. Hire a professional organizer. If you have larger spaces that need greater attention or additional time and you are limited in what you can do, hire a professional. Many people organize for a living and would welcome the opportunity to assist.

These few simple tips from will be a great way to start off 2018 in the right direction.
