Increase Your Storage Space
One of the easiest ways to kick clutter the kerb inside your home is by adding extra storage space. Having too few cupboards, shelves and wardrobes will no doubt encourage your stuff to ‘take over’, as it has nowhere to hide! Investing in functional storage options will benefit your property dramatically, as utilising space that would have otherwise been wasted is such an effective option to explore. For example, adding extra kitchen cupboards above your existing units to fill the empty space right up to the ceiling can provide masses of usable storage. Storage benches can also work well – they fit perfectly inside children’s rooms as they can be filled with toys whilst doubling up as handy seating. Sometimes just having your belongings packed away somewhere safe and out of sight is enough to give your home the feeling of organisation and order. If you simply don’t have the space to add more storage inside your home, seeking out a secure storage facility that you can ‘lock up and leave’ may be a more suitable option. Many storage facilities are extremely affordable, and it means you’ll still have near immediate access to all of your much loved items.
How To Declutter
Making the decision to try and declutter your home may be a big project to take on, however there are several different ideas that you can pursue to make the process far easier to handle. Choose a day during which you have no plans, and get to work by tackling one room at a time. Separate your belongings into 3 different piles, one being keep, one being sell, and one being trash. Your ‘keep’ pile should be the smallest of them all, as that’s the main aim of decluttering. You can decide whether something is worth selling by attempting to figure out the value of the item – is it something that’s in demand? Most furniture, decor and clothing is an easy sale, and there are many online auction platforms that you can utilise to get the best price for your items. The ‘trash’ pile should contain anything of low value that you no longer wish to keep, but you should always aim to go through these items to see whether anything can be donated to charity.
