Spring has Sprung, which means it’s time to clean up your home. Junk removal, organization, and decluttering are often the challenging parts of cleanup.
But, the problem can become less of a burden when you work in segments. Here’s how:
- Start by collecting loose paper
Paper is the number one clutter in most homes, from the living room to the kitchen countertops. So, have a central location for the papers, say a dedicated cabinet or a bin where you can throw in a birthday card or even receipts you want to hold on to.
You can also consider having a waste bin in every room for convenience in throwing away unwanted papers.
- Clean the countertops each at a time
Counters, especially the kitchen countertops, easily get accumulated with a lot of clutter, which sometimes is useless junk.
And one sad truth about countertop clutter is they never go away. You always find yourself moving the same mess to a different countertop. So, how about you cut the cycle by cleaning your countertops in segments.
This means taking one countertop, cleaning and organizing it before moving to the next countertop. You can keep the stuff you regularly use in drawers and cabinets that are easily accessible.
- Don’t give up on your closet
Closet organization is perhaps the most enjoyable yet daunting task. But the more you shy away from arranging your closet, the junkier it looks and becomes.
You can start by taking out the unnecessary clothes; these are the ones that don’t fit and the ones that are worn out, or you don’t need anymore.
The next step is the actual arrangement, separating the coats from the trousers, the dresses, and the shirts. This is the best way to maximize space and have a neat closet.
- Set aside time to declutter
You can choose a time in your schedule, maybe on the weekends, specifically for decluttering. This discipline will go a long way in ensuring your home is always organized.
- Learn to stick to your plan
As hard as that sounds, it’s doable. Don’t just wait for spring to declutter your home.
