The Best Ways to Declutter Your Life this Spring – Home Edition
Get rid of unnecessary items, one trash bag at a time
Everyone has tons of items in their life that they don’t use. Whether it be clothes, kitchen items, or office supplies, there are certainly things that you could stand to get rid of.
Commit time each week to filling one bag with items that you will either donate, give away, or get rid of altogether. Before long, you’ll find that you have a lot less stuff in your home and a lot more room to breathe!
Trash instruction manuals
This may seem silly, but it will actually make quite a difference! Everyone always has tons of instruction manuals for electronics and appliances lying around, and they end up crumpled, stuffed in drawers, and probably rarely touched.
Instead of hoarding them, download as many of them as you can to your computer or tablet and then get rid of the paper copies. This is a small thing that will make a big difference!
Hooks are cheap and simple to install around your home, and some are even super stylish and can make a decorator’s statement in your house.
Or, if you’re looking to declutter in the most economical way possible, you can certainly take advantage of inexpensive hooks that are adhesive and a cinch to hang. These are great for hanging items like dog leashes, keys, jewelry, umbrellas, bags, or even smaller items like headphones.
Make a charging station
Wires and cords can seem to take over your counter space, nightstand, or anywhere else where they dwell or are sprawled out around your home.
Instead of looking at that eye sore and dealing with the constant tangles, create a charging station to keep things neat and tidy. You can even run cords so that they are hanging in a drawer where things can rest to charge as needed, hiding the cords from sight.
These are just a few small changes you can make in your life to declutter your space – and mind – but they are sure to make a huge difference on your overall health, wellness, and happiness!
