Is the mess in your house giving you more stress? Do you want to start your new year fresh and free from all the clutter in your life including at home? If you want to remove all the mess from your sight before the year ends, then you should start thinking about decluttering your life.
Of course, this will start right at your home. Having your house cleaned up from all unnecessary things will help you begin fresh next year—more rooms for new stuff, and free from the stress caused by the mess all around you. If you are planning to declutter your house anytime soon, here are some steps that you can follow.
1. Sort out
You start this project by sorting all your things out. This may take time and cause a lot of mess around the house, but you have no choice. If you want to declutter the entire house, then you have to bring everything out from your rooms, cabinets, and closets.
You have to segregate all your stuff: those that need to go and the ones that need to stay. If you do not want to waste anything still valuable, you can have a space for the still-good stuff that you may bring out for a garage sale.
2. Clean-up day
After you have decided on which things to keep and let go, you should go to the next step. Throw away those you do not want to keep anymore to start cleaning your entire house. This may last for more than a day depending on the size of your place. Make sure that you cover all areas—from the living room down to the basement. This step will also help you find other things that you might also want to throw out.
3. Place everything in order
After the general clean-up, of course you will have to put the house back in order. Make sure that you arrange things well in their place. If you want to avoid clutter in the future, better practice being organized now.
Be systematic in how you arrange everything. For instance in your closet, you can arrange your clothes according to their purpose. Separate the summer wardrobe from the jackets and coats. Another example would be segregating your files according to their dates and types. Keep the bills together and have a separate envelope or folder for business or work files.
