Decluttering is one of the most common resolutions people make at the start of a new year. It’s a great way to start the year fresh by getting rid of the things you no longer need and rediscovering the items you lost. If this resolution tops your list of ways to improve in 2021, we’ve got some helpful tips to get you started.
Take It One Space at a Time
There’s no rule that says you have to declutter your entire home in one day. Gauge your level of energy and tackle what you can. Perhaps you can manage an entire room. Or maybe you’re simply going to focus on the bookcase.
Go Through Everything
Open every box, folder, and drawer to ensure you’ve sorted through every possible item. You might be able to slim down the file cabinet or fit the craft supplies in a smaller box if you take the time to weed out the things you no longer need.
Get Out the Cleaning Supplies
As long as you’re getting rid of the clutter, get rid of the dust and dirt too! Break out the cleaning supplies and wipe down shelves, vacuum the curtains, and collect the dust bunnies that have been laying around since last year.
Put Similar Items Together
When reorganizing the remaining items, try to keep like things together. Put all the drill bits in one space. Keep the sheets with their matching sets. Make sure every back-up roll of tape and scissors is in the kitchen drawer.
