Don’t stress over the clutter.
Studies show that the thought of decluttering actually increases the levels of stress. The last thing you need is to feel bad for yourself. Instead of feeling miserable, take a look around. Start imagining how the house will look after you are done with the decluttering. Concentrating on positive images and thoughts will relieve the stress.
Don’t do everything in a day.
Decluttering the whole house in a day is not just tiresome but also quite unrealistic. Start from a single place and take a week or even a month to finish with the decluttering of every room in your home. Completing the tasks one by one will make you feel less stressed out and you can pay more attention to your family. Plus, when decluttering one place at a time, you will do it more thoroughly and the results will be better than dealing with the whole house in one day.
Make a to-do-list.
Making a list of the places you must declutter will help you tremendously with the procedures. Every time you complete a chore on the list you will feel a sense of fulfillment and you will be able to see the actual results of your hard work.
Decluttering will help you with the cleaning
Follow the rules for the wardrobe decluttering.
Forget keeping things ‘just in case of’.
We are all guilty of keeping useless stuff. If you are honest with yourself, you can make decluttering possible. Forget keeping items in case of something happens. The chances to actually need things which you haven’t use in the last few years are quite slim. Instead, throw away those useless things and free some space in your home. This will give you a good feeling of an organized homeowner.
Make a box for items you are not sure about.
Make everything easier to find.
