As we continue to social distance, it’s important to keep our homes decluttered and organized. But here’s the thing: you can have a “clean” house that’s still messy. There is no correlation between clean and clutter.
Decluttering your home is also about having a peace of mind. An organized home is proven to decrease stress and anxiety levels and improve productivity.
Luckily, decluttering isn’t impossible. With these few handy tips, you’ll have your home decluttered and stress-free in no time!
1. Don’t Purge
It’s easy to take one look at your clutter and simply throw everything away, but try to be more intentional in the process instead. You never know what important treasures you could be tossing away.
Start by sorting your clutter into groups: trash, recycle, donate, sell, etc. Laundry baskets, storage bins, shoe boxes, and brown paper bags can help group your items.
2. Make a Checklist
If more than one room in your house needs decluttering attention, it helps to make a list. Write down what and where you want to get organized and check it off as you move along. It feels good to cross things off a list!
3. Take Before and After Pictures
It might sound cheesy, but this extra step can make a world of difference. Taking before and after photos is a simple way to track your progress. You’ll see all your hard work has paid off and feel motivated to keep it up.
4. Post the photos on Social Media
Posting your before and after photos to social media is fun! It shows your friends and family what you’re up too – and it could inspire someone else to get organized too! Think of a clever hashtag and maybe you’ll start a trend.
