Decluttering is the act of removing unnecessary items from your home, workplace, or any other place.
There are many ways to declutter and it is important to find what works best for you. The most common way is to go through your belongings and take out anything that you don’t need.
If you want to declutter your home, start by sorting through all of your clothes and getting rid of anything that doesn’t fit or is worn out. You can also get rid of old furniture by selling it or donating it if it’s still in good condition.
Here are some tips for decluttering your home:
– Do it all at once. One big weekend, tackling every room of your house – including garages and sheds. If you do it bit by bit, you won’t make as much of an impact.
– Take time to think about what items you no longer need or use
– Sort through everything you own and decide what should stay and what should go
– Discard items by donating them to charity, selling them, or throwing them away
When you have your three piles, you need to take action. Load your boot up with all the items you are taking to the charity shop, and make sure you take them that day. Otherwise, you end up with bags of unwanted “stuff” all over your home.
If you are selling them, get them on Facebook Marketplace and if they don’t go, then reduce the price. If you need to, give them away for free.
If you are throwing them, the best thing to do at the start of your decluttering is to hire a skip, so its on your driveway for the entire time you are sorting out your home. Work out what size you will need by checking out this Skip Size Calculator. If you know how many rooms you will be decluttering, this will give you a great starting point.
Organising your garage is a daunting task. It is also important to have a clean and tidy garage so that it does not become a dumping ground for all your junk.
It is important to plan before you start organising your garage. You need to decide on the most important things that you want in your garage, then work out what needs the most space, and finally work out how much space you have available. Check out Skip Sizes and ensure you are strict with yourself on what you are throwing out. Do you really need 15 hammers?
Some tips to organise your garage are:
-Sort items by type ( tools, garden furniture , sports equipment)
-Create a storage system that suits you and your family’s needs (. shelves, drawers, racks)
-Make sure all items have a designated place in the garage so they are easy to find
Once you have emptied every room, you will soon start to see an improvement in your stress levels. Its much easier to keep on top of things when its already organised. Good luck!
