Five simple ways to declutter your home
Love it, use it or lose it.
1. Form and Function:
Is it broken or damaged?
If it mattered, wouldn’t you have fixed it by now?
Get rid of it!
2. The two-year rule:
You say you have ‘nothing to wear’ but your wardrobe is bulging.
Haven’t worn something in the past two years?
Donate it to a local charity.
3. Done and dusted:
Your storage spaces ar4e filled with boxes of outdated kitchen gadgets, unused gym equipment, and the baby clothes of your now-adult children.
Pack them up and pass them on.
4. Computer says ‘no’:
Holding on to floppy disks, cassette tapes, old mobiles and computers?
Transfer and backup anything that matters.
Then drop electronic items off at your nearest e-waste recycler.
5. Lost all meaning:
The artwork your great aunt left you.
The ring your ex gave you
If items don’t mean anything to you anymore… It’s time to let them go.
It is amazing how good it feels to rid yourself of all the stuff that’s weighing you down!
