5 Tips to Declutter Your Richland Hills Home Daily

Sarasota County Woman Decluttering Her HomeAs a renter, a cluttered home can be a reason why you’re often annoyed and frustrated. However, the challenge of decluttering a home may seem like a never-ending battle with your stuff. Rather than merely changing things around, experts suggest applying a few specific strategies to help you declutter your home a little bit every day. Practically, by following these five simple suggestions, you can remove the clutter from your Richland Hills home quickly.

1.  Start Small

Trying to declutter the whole house in a day is an ideal way to get irritated – and not change anything. Instead, start small. Set aside 5 or 10 minutes every day and focus on removing clutter from a single area. Over the next few days, you can begin to see significant changes in the quantity of clutter in your house.

2.  Give Unused Items Away

Almost everyone has unused items that only occupy space in our homes and closets. Try choosing just one item to give away each day. That will add up to 365 items in a year. To determine which garments to keep and which you should give away, try this simple trick: turn all of your hangers in the reverse direction. As you wear each item, turn the hangers back the correct way. After a few months, gather up everything you haven’t worn and donate them.

3.  Use a Trash Bag

If you are looking for another strategy, you could try the trash bag approach. To use this method, get a large trash bag and walk all over the house and start checking for the things you don’t use anymore or need. Keep putting the things in the bag until it is full as fast as possible, and then donate the items or give them away.

4.  Create a Decluttering Checklist

Decluttering your home every day is very easy to do when you have clearly defined tasks. Additionally, you can monitor your progress by highlighting each thing as it gets done. Using a checklist like this one, focus on decluttering slowly but surely, for just a few minutes a day.

5.  Use the Box Method

Another alternative solution to instantly declutter an area is to use the box method. Get several boxes and label them with terms like Keep, Give Away, Trash, or Re-Locate. Going to one room at a time, take each item in the room and place it into one of the boxes. Don’t stop until every single item is in a box. Then continue by donating, re-locating, or throwing away the items in the corresponding box. Another variation in this method is to have baskets that are for every member of the household. Once the baskets are full, they have to put away their things every day in their proper places. In these ways, you can declutter your entire house one box or basket at a time.

No matter which decluttering tip you begin with, by using them, it is possible to get the clutter in your house under control and keep it to a minimum every day.
