Declutter Your Home

Decluttering your home is a time-consuming and overwhelming task but once you do it you will notice all the benefits. It will make you feel more comfortable in your home, have extra space for storage, make cleaning and maintaining your house easy, and also give you the opportunity to help others by donating what you no longer need. If you are wondering how to make the decluttering process easier for you, this article will give you some useful tips.

1.Take a Look At Your House

Take a closer look at each section of the house and think about what is the final result that you want. Think about what is the first impression that a visitor would get when looking at your house, analyze how your home makes you feel. Does it make you feel comfortable, stressed, anxious, relax, safe? Do certain areas in your house look welcoming? Do you usually have a hard time finding things?. Find out what doesn't work and set a goal, some people want to achieve a minimalist style while others want to have many possessions.


Decluttering gives you the opportunity to help others by donating what you no longer need. Donating is a great way to get things out of your house immediately and having someone else appreciate them. Before you start to declutter do quick research on which organizations are close to your area and what items they accept, this will save you time in the process. Select a "holding zone" where you can place everything that you are considering to donate, this area should be in a place that isn't visible.

3.Give Stuff Away

Maybe some items that you no longer want are still of good quality and could be useful for your friends and family. Of course, don't put any pressure on them to accept your items, they should only accept them if they really need them. Give them a deadline to pick up the things so you don't have things that you don't need for longer than necessary, if they don't pick them up simply donate the items.

4.Sell The Items

Decluttering your house could also give you money if you sell some items but beware that it could take time to sell everything and it may require some effort, if you post them online you will have to take pictures and write descriptions or you can host a garage sale. Consider using Facebook Marketplace to sell your unwanted things. Have a "holding zone" for those items that you are looking to sell, so you don't create more clutter. Set realistic prices and have patience.
