Most owners of homes in Grassland Lakeland Florida have this problem – having too many things at home. The most basic step of having gorgeous home, especially when you are preparing it to sell is decluttering. However, it isn’t as easy as it sounds. It can be hard to let go of things we have accumulated over the years, not to mention the amount of time needed to sort everything out.
Let us help you with these 4 steps to making and keeping a home clutter free.
Develop criteria and stick to it
I know this sounds too serious but if you want to get rid of clutter once and for all, you really need this. Think of criteria on what should be disposed even before you rummage through your things. For instance, you should decide beforehand that anything that hasn’t been used for the last 6 months (especially in clothes), anything that look too worn out, or anything which has been waiting to be fixed for months should go to the boxes. Have these criteria and stick to them. This will make sorting and organizing a lot easier later on.
Split and schedule
Often, people procrastinate and postpone heavy tasks. This is the same when dealing with a huge pile of clutter at home. The best thing to do it to divide all the tasks and then assign schedule for each. For instance, you can allot one afternoon or evening to declutter your kitchen, another for your bedroom, and so on until you have covered all areas of your Grasslands Luxury homes for sale Lakeland Florida. If the room is too big, perhaps you ought to split into two parts. Having a huge decluttering calendar works for many.
Prepare boxes per category
Many have attested on how effective it is to prepare categorized boxes for clutter. You can assign boxes for junk, donations, and items you still need to figure out what to do. Carry large plastics with you with the same categories and deposit contents in boxes later on.
This where your commitment to stick to your developed criteria would come in handy. Sometimes, it is hard for us to part with things we have accumulated in our Lakeland FL Grasslands homes for sale, especially when it reminds us of fond memories. Being determined on freeing up your home from unnecessary items is a must.
Actually finish the job
Trying to start decluttering but ending up with lots of boxes piled in a room isn’t a complete mission. You have to really get rid of the things. Donate what needs to be donated, throw what needs to be thrown away, and decide on what to do with the rest. You can even opt to sell things you think you won’t be needing but are still good to sell. After doing so, you’ll see how organized your home would look, just like homes in http://www.LakelandFloridaLiving.com.
