If you’re feeling overwhelmed about the sheer amount of belongings in your home, follow my 7 Steps to Decluttering your Home and Mind.
last year our Home was over crammed with non-essential items… Decluttering was was my Optimum goal.
Have a Charity month – For one month, put away one thing a day to take to the Charity shop.
One in One Out – To solve serious storage problems, develop a one in one out system, where for every item you bring into your home, one item has to leave your home.
Cleanse your mind – Give your mind and body a declutter aswell!. How about a book of Meditation for your bathroom? or before bed?. Check out Gypsy Soul’s Mindfulness book wishlist.
Don’t be a hoarder – If the sight of your wardrobe makes you dive under the duvet, maybe its time to develop a system?. Each Season, wash and put away the clothes you won’t wear until another season.
Cull your files – Do you really need all those bank statements? keep the last 6 years and shred the rest. And as for birthday cards…do you need all of them that you have kept since you were born? I always keep the 1st birthday cards and the handmade ones and recycle the rest.
Sort your drawers out – Make a divide…sorting clothes into Winter and Summer sections. Donate or sell any clothing you haven’t worn for a year.
Yearly bootsales – Do a Family bootsale once a year, we make it a competition to see who can sell the most items and it’s really great for the kids with their Maths.
We still have a long way to go, but already I’m feeling Liberated.
I hope you have enjoyed my 7 Steps to Decluttering your Home and Mind.
I would love to hear your ideas too.
