Decluttering can spark joy and accomplishment in you. So let’s get started on decluttering your space with these important tips.


Start with Individual Rooms

From your kitchen to your bedroom and living room, decluttering room by room is the best way to start the decluttering process.


Create a Decluttering Plan

Create a to-do checklist and decluttering plan for each individual room. Include what needs to be decluttered and the direction you will take.


Donate, Sell or Trash it

Use a box or bin to create a donate, sell or trash pile. If you haven’t worn or used in quite a while, ask yourself if how important it is to keep. 


Start Small

There’s no need to declutter everything at once, especially if it becomes an emotional journey for you. You can start with the junk drawer, the pantry, or underneath the bed.


Check the Expiration Dates

Check for expiration dates and eliminate old expired food, cleaning supplies, old cosmetics, and hair products.


Find Storage Solutions

Find alternative storage solutions like baskets and bins that can best fit the items in your home.


Set a Schedule

Having specific days and times set aside to get the work done will help you best manage your time and push you to complete the task within the specified time constraint.
