would be the first question you ask. The reality is that it probably did not take you one day to accumulate all the items you have and similarly it might take some time to get your house back in control. However, there are several simple ways that you can declutter your home easily.

Organize

The items in your home will start becoming a problem and turn into clutter if they are not properly organized. It is easy to buy things and leave them around the house after light use or worse still no use at all. With a busy lifestyle, you might find yourself promising to keep certain items away and never get around to doing it and as you buy more items the more living space they take up turning into clutter. Purposing to organize your items is the best place to start if you truly want to declutter your home.

Get help and create lists

Organizing your home with the main aim of de-cluttering is not an easy task especially if you are embarking on it alone. Get friends or family members to lend a helping hand to make the task more enjoyable and quicker. Invite them over during the weekend for a quick organizing session followed by a barbeque and as incentives allow them to take things you do not need. In order to keep a better track of the items you have in your home and make the organizing process much more efficient, create lists. The organizing process might not get done in one weekend and so you will need to set aside several weekends and keep track of where like-items are stored for future reference.

Proper storage

Once you decide to organize your home, you will need proper storage methods in order to regain most of your living space. Get proper storage boxes and if need be invest in storage units which take up minimal space. Only keep what you absolutely need and use and properly store away the rest for donation or disposal. Throwing away your items does not sound appealing especially because you probably spent a lot to acquire them. The next best solution is to give away the items that you do not need.

Give out something each day

Chances are that every single day you will stumble upon one or two items and question why you bought them or even own them at all. What you can do is to start by giving away an item each day and soon the pile of items which you do not need and are taking up valuable space will thin out.
These are some of the few simple ways to use to declutter your home. Remember that it starts with one item stored properly or discarded at a time to restore your home back to a live-able space.
