How to Declutter Your Home in Just 3 Days

Let’s Get To Work

Clutter is a problem that many people face. It can make rooms feel small and uninviting, as well as affect self-esteem. Clutter can also create a lack of organization with regards to items such as mail, bills, and keys. Living in a cluttered environment can cause feelings of anxiety and depression to the point where some people may refuse to enter their homes.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by your clutter or are just looking for some tips on how to get started decluttering your home, read on!

How to Declutter Your Home in Just 3 Days

Organize your space

The first step in decluttering your home is to organize the space. This may seem like a daunting task but it is actually quite simple. You can use things like boxes and bins to store items that you are not using on a regular basis. These items could include old clothes, books, expired food, electronics, toys and more. Once you have organized your space, you will be able to see what needs to be tossed or donated in order to live more comfortably and feel more at ease.

Declutter ruthlessly

To declutter your home effectively, you’ll need to be ruthless. You don’t have to get rid of everything, but you will need to get rid of most of your items. Start by sorting the items in your home into categories such as clothes, books, toys, and other household goods. Then sort each category into “Keep,” “Donate,” and “Toss.”

Next, create an action plan for each room in your house. Create a wall for each room with space for bins or boxes labeled according to the following: Clothing (size and season), Books (keep or donate), Toys (keep or donate), Home Goods (keep or donate). Once you’ve created these areas, go through the Keep pile one-by-one and sort them into the appropriate bin for that room.

Now it’s time to tackle those tougher decisions! For example, if you’re faced with two books on the same topic but only have space for one in your bookcase, choose the book that has been read more often or is more relevant to your life at this moment.

De-junk your life

One of the first things you can do is to get rid of any junk. Clutter can be defined as anything that doesn’t have a specific purpose in your life, and junky items fall into this category. For example, if you have old newspapers or magazines that are collecting dust, get rid of them. If you really enjoy looking at it for nostalgic reasons, donate them instead.

*If you have catalogs from stores or clothing stores that you no longer shop at, get rid of them.*

*If there are clothes from your high school days in your closet, think about whether or not they fit now and if they are still in good condition before throwing them out. If they don’t fit or you haven’t worn them in years (or better yet, decades), it may be time to donate the clothes.*

After going through all of your belongings and getting rid of anything that is not absolutely necessary for use on a daily basis, make an effort to organize what remains by room. This will make it easier to clean up since you won’t need to pack up everything to vacuum the floor!

Keep it up

The first step to decluttering is to make the time. If you are serious about getting rid of the clutter in your home, then find a day where you will not be interrupted and take the time to get it done.

The most important part of this process is that you can’t half-ass it. When we say “declutter,” there are no shortcuts or wishy-washy efforts allowed. You need to go all out! Cleaning should be a complete job, which means doing everything from washing dishes and scrubbing floors, to sorting through mail or toiletries. There is no such thing as “half unpacking.” Don’t stop until every bit of clutter is gone!

Stay motivated and have fun!

The first step when you are trying to declutter your home is to stay motivated and have fun! If you are having a hard time staying motivated, try clearing space in one room or area of your home at a time. You can also start by sorting through the clutter that is most visible, such as clothes on the floor and dishes in the sink, so that you don’t feel overwhelmed from the start.

At this point you should ask yourself if anything in your house sparks joy. If not, it may be time for those items to go out of your life for good. Keep what brings you joy around and stop buying things that seem interesting but don’t bring any real joy into your life.

Take advantage of a rubbish collection company
