7 Tips To Make Home Decluttering Easier

I love a clean home, and since having my own house, I am obsessed with cleaning and organising.  The thing that I find hardest in decluttering is seeing where to start and when I see a mess my mind isn't calm until it's clear but how do you start? What can you do to make it less stressful? Here are some tips I have learnt on the way that may help you.

Sell your clothes
One thing that I struggle with is getting rid of clothes, and I noticed that I had clothes from 8 years ago. It's hard getting rid of them, but I found there was an app where you can sell your clothes. Depop and Vinted are a fantastic way of making money. You'll be surprised by how much you can make, take good quality pictures of your clothes and be realistic with how good/bad the quality is. It's helped a lot with making money and also getting rid of the clothes. 

Make a list
I love a good list, and it is so satisfying when you're ticking off the list away. I find having a list for each room is a lot less stressful too. You can tackle each problem, and have all your focus on that one room.

Buy a label maker
 My inner ‘Monica Bing’ coming out, but these are honestly the best things ever.  Everything gets put into a home from labelling bills to other mail to even labelling the use-by date on food - my mind felt so cleansed seeing all that organisation for about 2 minutes.

Bin that lonely sock
One sock alone and the next week it becomes a family of odd socks. WHERE DO THEY ALL GO? I seriously don't get it and how I keep losing them. I've realised that the best thing to do is buy black socks then it doesn't matter. I counted all my boyfriend's odd socks, and it was over ten that have gone missing, it's like some sock ghost comes in and steals them.

Stick to one room
It's a lot easier when you stick to one room. You can focus on each room carefully and go through everything.  I love when you find random crap because you end up cleaning your room wearing those sunglasses you had as a kid looking like Lewis Capaldi.

Buy baskets
Now don’t tell me watching Mrs Hinch’s Instagram stories makes you want baskets where everything is in its place. They make you feel organised AF. There are so many sizes for different purposes too. It is a lifesaver, and you will not regret buying one.

Have no screens around you
I get way too distracted when I have my phone with me I feel like I need a break every 10 minutes from cleaning, I don't realise that I waste a hell of a time just scrolling through Twitter for no reason. Having no screens not only means you're focused, but you can get the job done quicker.

Do you have any other tips to share? Have you found these tips help?

Decluttering is my favorite thing - I could do it every day in a different part of my home!

Emily said...

These are awesome tips! I recently decluttered- well, somewhat- and I could have used your list before I started! But my decluttering adventure isn't over yet, but I'll be sticking to your advice: stick to one room at a time! No need to feel overwhelmed, right?? Thanks for the great blog post!
