Are you ready to tackle the clutter?

For some people decluttering is an easy task, but for many it can easily become overwhelming and it gets placed into the too hard basket.


To tackle overwhelm, you need to chunk it all down into slow, small steps.
Here are some easy ways to help you get started!

1. Start small

The thought of decluttering your entire home can be overwhelming, so start small.
Don’t try and tackle everything at once.
Instead start with one area of your home that you can complete quickly.
Begin with one room, one area, or even just one drawer. This will help you stay focused and motivated as you start to see progress.
Create three clear piles – Keep/ Donate/ Bin.

2. Divide and Conquer

As you begin to sort through your stuff, break it down into smaller categories, for example when looking at your entire kitchen- begin with your utensil drawer.
Do you really need 3 sets of measuring cups or 5 pairs of scissors?
Get rid of your duplicates and keep the essentials. This will free up space and make it easier to find the things you’re looking for.

3. Let it go

One of the hardest things about decluttering is deciding what to keep and what to get rid of.
As you sort through your belongings, ask yourself- Do I love it? Do I use it?
If the answer is no- then it may be time to let it go.

4. Storage Solutions

Once you’ve decided what to keep, make sure you’re storing it in the most efficient way possible.
Use storage containers, tubs, and baskets to keep everything sorted and easy to find.
Maximise your storage space by using vertical solutions like shelves, hooks and hanging organisers. This is especially helpful if you’re tight on floor space.

5. Go Digital

In todays digital age, there’s really no need to keep piles of paper clutter around your home anymore. File away the super important stuff, scan documents and store them digitally.
Consider switching to e-bills to cut down on your paper mail.

6. Get creative

Use items you already have at home to create more storage solutions. For example- repurpose some old furniture, use jars for makeup brush holders, ceramic bowls to store earrings, or baskets for toy storage.
Get the whole family involved in finding fun and unique ways to keep your home clutter-free.

7. Keep it fun!

Decluttering doesn’t have to be a chore. Put on your favourite music, or invite a friend over to help.
Make it a fun experience that will leave you feeling refreshed and recharged.
