Declutter Your Home in Just One Week

Declutter Your Home in Just One Week

We all lead busy lives, and it’s sometimes difficult to keep on top of our storage spaces. A few of us might also be slightly guilty of holding onto things we don’t use anymore for future use. We let things slide and think we can sort everything out tomorrow. Then a few days turn into weeks, and before you know it, there’s no space left in the garage. The loft is full, and the spare room isn’t a room anymore, it’s a storage unit.

It’s time to reclaim your home and declutter everything in just one week.

Tips for Decluttering to Reclaim your Home –

A week might sound optimistic at best, but it’s not just doable, it’s a good idea to be proactive. Time is one of the main reasons we end up keeping possessions we rarely or never use. We plan on getting rid of things, but we never find the time. Rather than letting time be an excuse, reduce it to a much shorter time frame and stick to it.

Make a list of each room and pick one day to go through everything thoroughly.

Use three categories: 1 – still in use; 2 – rarely used; 3 – never used. Everything from 3 and most of 2 can now be removed, given away or sold if it’s of value. For any items from 1, you want to keep in the house, make sure you can organise them properly and put them into storage containers. Then label them to make sure you know what’s in each container.


How Storage Can Help –

Another great way to create more space at home when decluttering is to use storage. If you rent a self storage room with a reputable company, you will be able to store an entire room’s worth of belongings. That would mean having no storage containers in your spare room or garage and reclaiming them both to put to better use.

The main advantage of decluttering your home is to create more living space. Who knows, you might want to convert your spare room into a home office or study. The car can go back in the garage, or you can use the extra space as a utility room.
