What is decluttering about? Decluttering is getting rid of your unwanted and unnecessary stuff. The desire of decluttering might come when you find yourself overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you don’t need.
Clear away anything that’s not important in your life can be therapeutic, allows you to shifting your perspective. Selecting and eliminating what is no longer used, in fact, seems to have a real benefit even on an inner level, “freeing ourselves” from the past, opening our mind to the future and new possibilities. Less clutter more life.
Before you get started, make a plan. Write down or make a map of all the rooms. Do one room or one space at a time. You can also start with small decluttering projects before you commit to an entire room. That will give you a sense of accomplishment when you’re done.
Here are 5 simple rules to put in mind while decluttering your home:
- Think of the last time you used it. If you haven’t used it in the last year, you should get rid of it.
- Ask yourself if you love it. If you don’t love it, donate or toss it.
- Does it add value to your life? If not, donate or toss it.
- Does it has sentimental value? You can keep it only IF you have a place to put it.
- Do you know where to put it? Create a sorting system. Everything must have a place. If it doesn’t have a home donate it or toss it.
Remember: decluttering isn’t’ always permanent! Force yourself to forming habits that will keep your home tidy and clutter-free!
