6 Top Home Decluttering Strategies

Keeping your home clean, organized, and clutter-free can be a huge challenge. This is especially true when you have a busy schedule with kids and pets running around constantly. Perhaps you’re intrigued by the concept of minimalism and want to give it a go. Minimalism is not only a trendy term or fad these days. It’s actually a great way to save money, create more space for things you love, and live mindfully.

If you haven’t already considered a minimalist approach to decluttering, you may want to do some research into it. Decluttering regularly can keep your house clean and your mind fresh and productive.

Who wants to relax or watch TV on the sofa if there’s a pile of dirty dishes staring at you or hoards of clutter blocking up the hallway? Get your life in order with these six decluttering strategies and tips so that your house can be in tip-top shape every day of the week.

Consider a Minimalist Approach

Minimalism is all about creating a fulfilling, meaningful, and joyous life without the need for excessive junk or items we don’t need. Minimalism means keeping only the things that serve a purpose in your life or bring you joy. If this resonates with you, you might consider taking a minimalist approach when you declutter your home.

Envision a goal for yourself that involves more space for the things you love and creating room for positivity and enjoyment. As you get rid of old items, ask yourself if you need these things or if you are just holding onto them because you have unrealistic expectations of what they can do for you. Don’t be in a rush to fully adopt a minimalist lifestyle if this is something you are just beginning. Take it slow, and don’t be afraid to figure things out along the way.

Set a Schedule and Reward Yourself

Decluttering and organizing your home all at once can be very overwhelming and often won’t get done completely in the first day or two. Set a realistic schedule or goal to accomplish one room or one area a day.

If this seems like too much for you, you can aim to complete a room once a week and delegate a day of the week or set aside a particular time every day to complete it. This is all about creating a schedule and sticking with it. Remember to reward yourself along the way. It doesn’t have to be big, but even a trip to your favourite bakery or looking forward to a spa night can make the work seem easier and go by faster.

Utilize Self-Storage

Self-storage units are a great investment if you are hoping to find alternate storage solutions and don’t have enough space at home to store everything you want to keep. Renting a storage unit is a convenient and affordable way to create extra space for whatever it is that you love! If you have a dedicated offsite storage unit, this will free up a lot of space at home, so you don’t have to live in clutter and be constantly reminded of it.

One In and One Out

Adopting a “one in and one out” policy can help manage clutter and keep you from accumulating more. What this means is that for every item you acquire, you must get rid of another. You could donate, sell or gift away things that you don’t need anymore to make space for what you bring into your home. That is an especially great way to keep track of what you have and ensure you are only bringing in items that will serve a purpose for you.

Get Friends and Family Involved

What’s more fun than hanging out with the people that you love? If cleaning and decluttering seem like an utter bore for you, call over your friends and family to make a fun hangout session out of it. Order pizza and keep refreshments on hand to keep your team motivated!

Hire a Professional

If all else fails or you find that you simply don’t have the time and energy to allocate to decluttering, you can always hire a professional to do the work for you. A quick online search will yield companies or professionals in your area to help with cleaning, organizing, and decluttering. One less thing for you to worry about!

Decluttering doesn’t have to be something you dread every day. If you commit to making it engaging and get others involved, it can become an activity you look forward to.
