Sort, clean, and organize. Sounds simple. In reality, cutting clutter from your Grasslands Lakeland FL home is easier said than done.
There’s no need to worry. Here are a few simple tips to help you out –
Tackle an area or room one at a time.
One of the biggest mistakes homeowners do is starting the decluttering all at the same time. While they’ve just taken out the unused items in the closet, they have also moved a couple of outdated things in the living room, and then put to trash all expired goods in the kitchen. They’ve gone back and forth the entire house so many times that by the end of 2 hours, all the clutter are basically laid out in the open, with no place to go. So the next time you decide to clean house, make sure one area or room is completely done before moving into another.
Function vs. Beauty
Have you ever come across an item you’re not sure you want to let go of yet but you haven’t really had any use for it in the past year? Why do you keep the items you have in your Grasslands Lakeland FL house? Decide whether an item is functional or just plain decoration and whether you would like to keep both or not. Some people’s clutter are mostly from hoarding beautiful things that they usually outgrow in a year or two.
Visualize the space.
Before digging into the mess, try to spend a couple of minutes just looking at the room you want to declutter. Try to picture out how you would want the room to look like and where you want certain furniture to be placed at. By doing this, it becomes easier for you to know which items are essential to the space and which ones should go to the trash bin.
Don’t trash everything all at once.
Putting things in the trash can sometimes be such a relief but try not to go to that route just yet. Remember that while you find no more use for the clutter in your home in Grasslands Lakeland FL, other people might find use for it. So, make three piles: keep, sell, and throw. Hold a garage sale at the end of your entire cleaning phase. If you don’t have the time to organize a sale, you can also donate useful items to a charity of your choice.
Decluttering is not an easy task but it isn’t impossible either. By taking these simple tips and applying it your cleaning routine, your house will be spiffy clean in no time.
