Do you feel drawn to the clean, bright spaces showcasing minimalist trends on social networking sites? Does your home feel like it’s filled to the brim in comparison? Whether you’re striving for a more edited life, staging your home to prepare for the real estate market, or just trying to find some extra space, clutter is the enemy.
Sorting, Clearing and Organizing a Cluttered Space
The first and most important rule to keep in mind on your de-cluttering journey is that you must take one step at a time. It’s easy to feel so overwhelmed that you don’t even begin a project, especially if you’ve amassed a lot of “stuff.” Pick one room to start clearing, and begin in a single corner of that room. Work your way through drawers, shelves and closets, sorting things into categories: things to keep, things to donate, and things to recycle/discard.
Some of the things you own may not have a practical use, but hold such sentimental value that you can’t bear to part with them. Choose the ones you feel the most strongly about, but don’t feel obligated to keep things simply because they were gifts or belonged to someone else. If it’s not actively bringing positivity to your life, let it go.
Clearing away items for which you have no use or feel no connection can make an enormous difference in your home. Clutter-free spaces feel cleaner, lighter and less oppressive than those packed to the brim with things covering every available surface. After you’ve winnowed your collection down to the essentials, though, what do you do with what remains?
Finishing a Clutter Removal Project
At the end of your organization and sorting, you’ll be left with the items you wish to donate and those that no longer have useful life remaining. Broken or damaged items you’ve always planned to repair are likely not fit for much beyond the recycling center, but gently used things can find a new life in someone else’s home through donation.
It’s unlikely your idea of fun includes seeking out a number of donation centers, making several trips to drop off your unwanted items, and then researching various recycling centers. Electronic waste, for instance, can only be recycled at properly equipped facilities. Instead of making countless trips to dozens of different places to finish your clutter removal project, consider taking an easier route.
