How much stuff do you have in your house? Do you find it impossible to walk through a room without tripping over something? Maybe you’re running out of room for all the clothes and shoes that keep accumulating. But, no matter what type of junk you accumulate, there are ways to stop it from happening! In this blog post, we’ll discuss five steps that will help reduce clutter in your space.
1. Keep a trash can in every room of your house
Having a trash can in every room of your house can help make it easier to get rid of things that are cluttering up the place. If you have a bin in every room, waste won’t accumulate on surfaces and make it look like there’s more stuff than there actually is. Even better, if your trash cans are small enough to fit into tight spaces or under furniture, then you won’t have to worry about them being in the way.
2. Use the “one-in-one-out” rule to prevent accumulating too much junk
The one-in-one-out rule is simply the process of removing something to make room for other items that you buy. This is important because it will stop you from accumulating too much stuff and allow you to get rid of junk when new things come into your house.
For example, let’s say that every time a book comes in the mail (or whenever someone gives one to you), you can choose one to toss. Of course, you can do this by donating or selling books that you don’t need anymore, but the important thing is that something else goes out every time a new item comes in.
To make it easier for yourself and stick with your “one-in-one-out” rule, label boxes with what is inside and where it goes (i.e., kitchen items) so you know where to put things back when you’re done using them.
3. Throw away old clothes, shoes, and books that are cluttering up your space
Purging items that you no longer need or use is a great way to look at what you have and get rid of things that are just taking up space. While it’s good to hold on to sentimental items, there comes a point where holding onto shoes from ten years ago or clothes with holes in them seem like too much work when getting rid of them can free up so much room!
4. Create an area for all of your recyclables, so you don’t have to walk around looking for them when it’s time to take them out
Keeping your recyclables in one area can help you keep track of them and know where they are when it’s time to take them out. This will also save you from walking around the house looking for recyclable items that could be scattered throughout different rooms.
5. Put bins on shelves or under furniture, so they’re not visible but still accessible if needed
If you have too many items that cannot be thrown out, organizing them into bins will help you stay organized without looking cluttered. You can put bins on shelves or under furniture, so they’re not visible but still accessible if needed.
When decluttering, the important thing to keep in mind is that it’s okay to get rid of stuff you don’t need anymore! The less junk you have, the easier it will be for everything else around your house to stay organized and clutter-free.
