How to Organize Your House for The New Year
A clear strategy for a decluttering project makes it easier to accomplish your goals. Whether decluttering a multi-family home or an apartment, the tips below can make it easier to tackle any size of junk.
Create Time for the New Year Decluttering
You’ll wait forever if you’re waiting for a perfect time to declutter. Create the best time to declutter even if you have to break it into chunks; aim for progress rather than perfection because life can get busy, and creating a perfect time to declutter may not be in the realm of possibilities. Set a realistic time to commit to decluttering and stick with it; it could be 30 minutes every day or three hours every weekend.
Remember, it is okay to start small. Clean out one small section at a time; start with the toughest nook and crannies. The joy of decluttering a space can motivate you to clean and organize your entire home.
Simplify the Sorting Process
Chances are you use 20% of items in your house 80% of the time. And this means you might have many unwanted things to toss away. But how do you eliminate clutter responsibly? Use the container or create sorting sections to declutter your space; these can be the donate, sell, keep or discard sections.
The sorting containers can help you know where to put a particular item when editing through your stuff, especially things in storage spaces.
Donate or Sell
Handling huge piles of debris can be costly. The best way to make your new year decluttering less expensive is by donating or selling some stuff. This can be a worthwhile process since you’re contributing to a worthy cause or making money.
Donating or selling can be simpler when you sort items when cleaning out the junk, which is why the sorting process comes in handy. There are many avenues to sell unwanted stuff or donate, and a simple search online can connect you with nearby donation centers or customers.
