5 Tips to Declutter Your Flower Mound Home Daily

Flower Mound Woman Decluttering Her HomeAs a renter, a cluttered home can be the root cause of great anxiety and frustration. But the manner of decluttering a home can seem like a never-ending battle with your stuff. Instead of just transferring things around, experts suggest applying a few specific strategies to help you declutter your home a little bit every day. In fact, by following these five simple suggestions, you may just reduce clutter from your Flower Mound home forever.

1.  Start Small

Attempting to declutter your whole house at once is a great way to get overwhelmed – and for nothing to change. Rather, start small. Set aside 5 or 10 minutes every day and focus on removing clutter from a single area. Over several days, you will start to notice a substantial disparity in the amount of clutter in your house.

2.  Give Unused Items Away

Many of us have unused items that are simply taking up space in our homes and closets. Try choosing just one item to give away each day. That will add up to 365 items in a year. To figure out which clothes to keep and which you could donate, try this simple trick: turn all of your hangers in the reverse direction. As you wear each item, turn the hangers back the correct way. After a few months, gather up everything you haven’t worn and donated them.

3.  Use a Trash Bag

If you’re waiting for more of a challenge, you could try the trash bag approach. To practice this procedure, get a large trash bag and move around the house, scanning for items you don’t use or need. Fill the bag as quickly as you can, then donate the items or give them away.

4.  Create a Decluttering Checklist

Decluttering your home each day is a lot more manageable when you have clearly defined tasks. What is more, you can track your progress by checking off each item as it gets done. Using a checklist like this one, focus on decluttering a little bit at a time, for just a few minutes per day.

5.  Use the Box Method

One way to declutter an area quickly is to practice the box method. Get several boxes and label them with terms like Keep, Give Away, Trash, or Re-Locate. Going one room at a time, take each item in the room and place it into one of the boxes. Don’t stop until every single item is in a box. Then support by donating, re-locating, or throwing away the items in the corresponding box. Another variation on this approach is to have baskets about each member of the household. As the baskets are filled up, that person must then put their items away in their proper places each day. In these ways, you can declutter your entire house one box or basket at a time.

No matter which decluttering tip you begin with, by using them, it is possible to get the clutter in your house under control and keep it to a minimum every day.
