Decluttering Your Home Made Easy

Decluttering your home may sound overwhelming for some, especially if you’ve never done it before. However, the hardest part is usually to finally decide it needs to be done & to actually start the process.

If your home is need of a declutter, below is a quick & easy snapshot of areas around your home that you can begin with today. This covers the regular spaces you find within the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry, lounge & playrooms & what to do immediately after the declutter is completed.

Kitchen & pantry.

Decluttering the kitchen & pantry, just like any other space, can get very messy. I suggest selecting one space at a time so you don’t find your entire kitchen upside down!

You can split the spaces like this:

  • Refrigerator
  • Pantry
  • Utensil drawers
  • Cookware cupboards
  • Servingware cupboards
  • Junk drawers
  • Surfaces

Once you’ve decluttered every space remember to:

  • Donate or sell any items in good condition
  • Move rubbish out of the kitchen/pantry
  • Keep items in the space they belong to

Bedrooms.

Usually, bedrooms have a lot of hidden clutter within drawers & cupboards, which doesn’t make it look like a massive task at first. But be prepared, it can get very messy so ensure you’ll still have a bed at night if you don’t complete it in one day.

You can split the spaces like this:

  • Closet
  • Side tables
  • Dresser
  • Desks
  • Storage shelves
  • Under the bed
  • Floor

Once you’ve decluttered every space remember to:

  • Donate or sell any items in good condition
  • Move rubbish out of the bedrooms
  • Keep items in the space they belong to

Bathrooms & laundry.

Bathrooms & laundry are mentioned together here because they normally don’t take much time & can be done in the same day.

You can split the spaces like this:

  • Bathroom cabinets
  • Bathroom drawers
  • Bathroom shelves
  • Laundry cabinets
  • Laundry drawers
  • Laundry shelves
  • Floors

Once you’ve decluttered every space remember to:

  • Donate or sell any items in good condition
  • Move rubbish out of the bathroom & laundry
  • Keep items in the space they belong

Lounge & playroom.

The lounge & playroom are mentioned together as in some homes this is the same space, meaning there is no separate playspace.

You can split the spaces like this:

  • TV units
  • Shelves
  • Cupboards
  • Drawers
  • Storage units
  • Table surfaces
  • Floor

Once you’ve decluttered every space remember to:

  • Donate or sell any items in good condition
  • Move rubbish out of the lounge & playroom
  • Keep items in the space they belong to

 

I do hope this simple breakdown of the spaces in your home makes it easier for you to begin decluttering your home & then reap the benefits of living more organised.
