Is clutter taking over your home? Here are some easy ways to help you declutter your home and your life today:
Tackle messes one room at a time.
For every new item you buy, get rid of an old item.
Remember that improvements in one room can spread to the rest of the house.
Make cleaning up fun for your kids.
Create a vision for the room you’re cleaning.
Teach your kids how to sort.
Use a hanger system to determine which clothes you wear most.
Ask yourself if you really need something. If you hesitate, you don’t.
Establish a “magic triangle” in your kitchen between the stove, refrigerator and the sink. Keep the items you use most in that area. Anything you use less often, keep outside the triangle. It will save you a ton of time.
Identify useful utensils with the cardboard box test: Take all the utensils out of your drawers and put them in a cardboard box. For the next month, whenever you use one of the utensils, put it back in the drawer. If after four weeks it’s still in the box, you probably don’t need it.
