DIY Home Organisation: A day plan to declutter your home.

Am doing some major cleaning in the house and I was alarmed at the things I saw among my belongings. It happens to most of us, our homes become cluttered and disorganised sometimes. In reality, keeping your house clean and clutter free can make life so much simpler and it doesn’t have to be hard.

 

Ask yourself these questions and be honest

  1. Do I see myself using this in the next 12 months? If not, get rid of it.
  1. Is the item broken? If you know you won’t fix it or make use of it within a short space of time, please get rid of it.
  1. Does it fit into your current lifestyle? Overtime we upgrade our closet; does this item currently fit into your new lifestyle? If not please get rid of it.
  1. Am I holding on to something because I feel I wasted money? Well is not good enough reason to keep what you know you will never make use of.
  1. Is there some sentiment attached to the item? Sentimental things have ways of really decluttering a home, sentiment aside; you can actually give the item to a special friend or family. Just get rid of it.

Now that the purging process has begun, we need empty boxes, trash bags with the following labels:

  1. Donate charity
  2. Throw away
  3. Put away(another room)
  4. Garage sales.
