Living a simplified and uncluttered life with less stuff to worry about may sound attractive to many. All of us have at one point considered the possible benefits of owning fewer possessions for the sake of having less to clean, less to organise, less stress, less debt and more money as well as energy for more important things in life. It is one thing to think about getting rid of the things you don’t need and another thing actually getting around to doing it. The most common issue stopping people from doing this task is that they don’t know where to begin.
A lot of people feel overwhelmed, defeated or maybe even anxious by the thought of decluttering their homes, but the decluttering journey does not have to be as tedious and painful as some people make it out to be. In actual fact there are a variety of easy, fun and creative ways to start the process of organising and decluttering your home. Below are a few house organiser tips that you can follow to get one step closer to living a safe, healthy and stress free life.
- Give away one item each day.
This is a simple way to start, but keeping it consistent will mean that organising your home is less of a deadline and more of a process. Some people can develop an emotional attachment to items that they once needed but no longer do, therefore starting of small and recycling, giving away or donating one item a day can make the idea of getting rid of your possessions less daunting.
- Fill one trash bag.
Often times, you may not be looking to organise your possessions, but rather throw away old documents, papers, junk mail and overall mess that has been piling up in your home for as long as you can remember. Take the time to look through drawers, file cabinets and wardrobes to find things that you should have thrown out ages ago. Filling up one trash bag is the start to having a clutter free home.
- Change your perspective.
When you change your perspective on the situation, you will find the determination and motivation to organise your house. Simply telling yourself that “it needs to be done” can give you the energy to make it happen.
