Organization Tips For A Clutter-Free Home: 5 Steps To Get You Started
Believe it or not, a clutter-free home is achievable! It's easy if you just follow these 5 organization tips to get you started.
A clutter-free home can create an aura of productivity and peace.
If the last few years have accumulated into a pile of clothes, knick-knacks and other things that you never use, but seem to make your home feel messy, it’s time to get organized! Start the year fresh with a neat and clutter-free home. Here are 5 tips to get you started.
1. Get Rid of Things
Mary Kondo, the author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, is famous for recommending to get rid of anything that doesn’t “spark joy.” While that may be unrealistic for some, try to get rid of anything you don’t need or use. You can even donate old clothes to a charity so that you know they'll be going to a good cause.
2. Designate Places for Your Things
If you are the type of person who can’t seem to stay organized, designating specific places for your things will help prevent you from creating more clutter. And, remember to always put your things back where they belong, once you are done using them! For instance, if you designate your blow dryer to live in a cabinet in your bathroom, be sure to put it back once you are finished with it.
3. Take a Trip to the Container Store
The Container Store has a gold mine of treasures that will help you find new ways to, well, contain your stuff. From items to help you organize your shoes, to getting your kitchen in order, there are containers and tools aplenty to help you achieve your mission. A few more examples include drawer organizers for your office, racks for spices, and organizational bins for storage.
4. Go Through Your Papers
Do you have old bills, flyers, and notes lying around in your office collecting dust? If you have papers that have been collecting the proverbial dust for years, set aside time to look through them; figure out what needs to be filed and what can be thrown out. Organize the papers that you still need so you know where to find them, and shred or throw away anything else. You may have more trash sitting around than you realized!
5. Get Help From a Specialist
If you need a little motivation, it might be a good idea to read Marie Kondo’s aforementioned book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. If you don’t have time to read the book, you can cheat and watch the Netflix special, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” for a little inspiration. Still can’t seem to get organized? You can hire specialists to come to your home and take you, step-by-step, through the organization process.
