Who hates clutter? I know I do. It makes me feel very dizzy if I am being honest.
Clutter is a major problem for most of us. At a point in our lives, we most likely have to deal with clutter, especially when we start growing our family. To be clear, clutter is bad. It takes up all available space and you never know for sure what you have because it is most likely all buried under a pile somewhere. Which causes wastage because you end up duplicating lots of what you have already because you can’t find. And that leads to more clutter.
So how do we sort out the clutter issue? Here are a 4 tips you will definitely find handy –
If possible, get some more storage in your home. This way, you have some more extra space to play around with, pending when the clutter is sorted. You could start with a shed if you can, or you could increase your space with a DIY Conservatory. Whichever way you can, try to get increase your storage options in your home to sort out the clutter.
Have a good look at all what you have and get rid of anything you don’t need. So for clothes, if you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in a year, get rid of it. You could give it away to charity or sell the items if they are still in a good condition. If the item is not good enough to give charity or to sell, then you need to bin it.
You need to be a little ruthless when doing this task, no room for sentiments or else you will still be left with some clutter.
While the decluttering is going on, you need to only buy what you need. So no shopping for unnecessary stuff until the clear out is done. This way you get to discover what you definitely need and what you don’t. And avoid wasting your hand earned money on items you have already but can’t see.
Recycle as many items as you can. I always make sure I send any furniture or home equipment I won’t be needing to our local recycle centre. It is my own way of taking care of the environment, and it makes me feel good.
