Tips To Get Rid of Clutter in Your Home

Yet another room with clutter all over the place. Clutter can take away your Zen space. It won’t happen overnight, so now is the time to be making a plan of attack to preserve your sanity.

Clutter can be a major issue in messy living spaces. It keeps piling up, and every time you look at it, you feel more and more at a loss as to where you’d start. It’s hard to pick an item. You are not able to find things easily. You can’t even find your clothes in a closet filled with tons of clothes that you no longer wear. It is not only an eyesore, but also a health hazard.

On the other hand, it can be easily managed by removing all the junk and keeping only what is needed. Then putting everything back in its place so that it is easy to find and access. It won't happen overnight, so now is the time to devise a strategy based on these suggestions and ideas.

1. Get Organized

Sort out clothes and toys in the kids' rooms.

  • Get rid of things you no longer need.
  • Get proper storage units and label them.
  • Teach the kids to put their own things away.

Once the personal belongings are in place, this leaves little clutter in the room.

2. Basket Trick

  • Get a laundry basket for each family member.
  • Start with the least cluttered room of the house, so you'll see success quicker.
  • Put everything in the baskets that doesn't belong in that room.
  • Then each person has a deadline to find a home for everything in the basket, or you will (even if it's file thirteen).
  • Keep a big trash bag nearby to get rid of stuff immediately (like junk mail). Do this for each room of the house. You can either sell, give away, or throw them away.

Use the basket trick daily; going from room to room makes it easier to stay on top of things. If the room still looks chaotic, decide if the items need relocation, storage, sold, or given away.

3. Get Storage

Three words to keep in mind when it comes to de-cluttering your home, storage, storage, and storage. Storage requirements of various rooms differ. What works in the family room won't work in the kitchen. Furthermore, different family members have different ways of accessing their stuff from a storage unit. Take your time and research the options out there and find a system that works for your family.

Final Thoughts

Getting rid of clutter comes down to finding a place for everything. Everything should have its proper place, and there is a place for everything.
