READY TO BEGIN- PASSAGES AND FLOORS
Start by clearing the floor and passageways. You’ll be needing space to move around. Tripping may come into play if you don’t do this. We are trying our best not to call 911.
1.THE BEDROOM IS THE FIRST TO GO DOWN
Remove all that you have in the closet. Pick out the items you’ll are using and separate them from the ones you’re not. “Using” is the word we are focusing on. Toss all the items you’re not using into a container. You may want to label these containers to be on the safe side.
2.TRASH THESE ITEMS…
Old handbags, empty perfume bottles, old shoes, unused clothes, old combs and brushes, books etc. Place these into a labeled container. Check on your bed linens. Only hang on to things you use at least once per month otherwise out the door it goes flying.
3.THINGS NOT NEEDED RIGHT AWAY
These are items you’ll be needing but not using every day. Place these in carefully labeled containers and place them in a clean clear space. You can return to these whenever they are needed.
Do this for all the rooms in your home with the name of the room and the content on the container. This makes it easy for you to located items when you need them. As you can see there are items you’ll be needing but not right away these don’t have to be in your everyday space.
Did you clear the floor in this area? if not start picking items off the floor. Check for decoration clutter, toss the ones that are outdated it may just be time to upgrade to the more modern types. Keep the ones that are sentimental, meaning there’s a story behind it and it fits in.
*Remove everything out of the living room
*Tweak dysfunctional items
*Purge the entire area if you must
*Replace only needed items
If your living room is used for multiple purposes then zoning would be just what you need. Create small spaces in your living room that only hold items for their purpose.
The living room should be the easiest room in the home to declutter, All it takes is a purge and redecorating and placing and keeping things in their places when they are through using.
I know the kitchen is where the fun of decluttering runs out. After all, almost everything in the kitchen is usable. Even though this is quite true there are items there that are corroding the area and you can do without.
For utensils such as your pots pans and storage containers, these are to be inspected carefully. Toss the ones that are old and again not being used. Too many of these can clutter your kitchen.
Minimalize the entire area by removing excess plates and cups. Place and keep everything in their designated space. One important tip to remember is to place items back in their place when you’re through using them. The smaller amount you have visible the less clutter your kitchen will be.
The good thing about decluttering is redecorating. This is the time you realized that most of the clutter that was taking up so much space was junk or simply not needed by you. You can choose to have a yard sale or just donate these items to someone who will use them every day.
