Did you know that having your living space packed with all kind of items that you haven’t used in months and years is annoying and stressful? Well, now you do. Look around your home or apartment. See a lot of junk lying around? It’s time you let go of all those unnecessary items. Decluttering you living space is one way for a stress-free peaceful life. Here are someways to start off with the decluttering.
Go through and throw
First of all go through all the items you have. If you haven’t used it in 5 months there’s a higher chance of not using it again. Throw them away. Find those old books and clothes you thought would be useful in the future? Throw them away. If the clothes are too tight, throw. Get some storage boxes to pack the items. Donate them or have a yard sale. It is up to you. Either way someone will be making use of it. If it is not in a good condition it is better to throw them away. Just let go of anything you won’t be using. Don’t hold on to it. It will just make it more messier.
Some people tend to stuff their space with furniture that they find beautiful. You see something “cute” and you buy it. Stop doing that. Just because a certain item is cute it doesn’t mean you should own it. Besides, these items might not even match with your current furniture. So, if you have such items its time to let go. Hire removalists to move them out. Donate them to a charity. This way you will be doing a good deed and someone will be taking care of it. If you don’t know what items match you can always get help from an interior designer or you can simply surf the internet. Whatever you do, keep you space simple as possible. Lesser the items, lesser the mess. Also, it will be much easy to clean around.
Make it a habit
This is not something you should do once in few years or so. Make a habit out of it. You should declutter your space atlas once a month. Don’t let it get packed, it will be hard to declutter. The more often you do the more easy and fun it will be.
