The new year means an opportunity for a fresh start: for your personal life, your work life, and in this case your home! Although decluttering your home can seem overwhelming, the end result makes it all worth it. Here are 3 tips that will make decluttering your home a breeze.
Start with a small project.
It is very easy to feel overwhelmed when trying to declutter your home. Instead of using that as a reason to procrastinate, try starting with a small project. This can be a junk drawer, a hall closet, or other small areas of your home. Once you are finished with your first small project, move on to the next one and you'll be in full swing in no time.
Organize your holiday decor before putting it away.
Although decorating your home for the holidays is a ton of fun, having to put it in storage is less exciting. It would be easy to throw it all in one big container and call it a day, but you'd just be setting yourself up for failure next year. Instead, take the time to organize it before you put it away. It may take a little more time, but you will thank yourself next year when it's time to take them out again.
Purging your closet is always one of the hardest tasks to do when decluttering your home. Make plans to donate the things you no longer need to a local shelter! Not only will this motivate you to get it done, but most importantly it will help someone in need.
