As the leaves start to turn and fall, our minds turn to autumn and the cooler, shorter days and what better time to carry out a de-clutter. Not only a vital task if you are moving, de-cluttering is a great way to ensure your home and the storage space it provides works for you.
For some, the thought of de-cluttering is a scary prospect but it needn’t be. Take small steps, see easy wins – start with a counter top, a shelf, maybe a drawer. Once complete, the sense of satisfaction will kick in and you’ll be off and before long, you’ll see great results. 5 minutes a day is enough of a start!
When looking at the space to be decluttered, allocate items to one of 3 piles:
Recycle – Charity/Re Gift
If you find you are really struggling to get into de-cluttering and you feel the task ahead is just too big, try the ’10 Items A Day’ challenge. Each day, try to dispose/recycle 10 items. Once you get started, you’ll see how easy it is and there will be no stopping you and a tidy and de-cluttered home will be yours!
