It’s that time of year again, the summer is here, and you’re finally going to have some free time. But before you start thinking about how much fun you’re going to have this summer, don’t forget your home! Decluttering your home room by room can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. We’ve created an easy-to-follow list for decluttering each room in your house so that when the weekend rolls around, all you’ll need to do is grab a glass of lemonade and enjoy yourself!
Here are 9 steps to get your home back in shape!
1. Declutter Your Kitchen
Decluttering your kitchen is a fairly quick task, but don’t stop there! Start by removing any expired food from the fridge and freezer, then move on cleaning up after yourself every time you cook so that clutter doesn’t build up in the first place! Clean off all counters and remove anything unnecessary so you can avoid the build-up of clutter. Make sure your cabinets are wiped down and any old food in the pantry is thrown out.
2. Declutter Your Bathroom
Most people’s bathrooms are their own personal space, and if it begins to feel cluttered or dirty, then the whole house starts feeling that way too! Decluttering your bathroom should be a quick task because you’ll only need to focus on one room at a time. Declutter any products in your tubs and cabinets, and then clean all surfaces before putting the items back.
3. Declutter Your Living Room
There are two ways of tackling your living room: Decluttering the entire space all at once or focusing on one area at a time. Start by picking up any clutter from surfaces and then go through each cabinet to remove anything you don’t use regularly. You’ll be able to spot what needs to be decluttered right away! If you have too many items sitting out, start sorting through and see which items you can donate or throw away.
4. Declutter Your Bedroom
Start by going through the closet. Declutter any clothes that don’t fit, are old, or out of style and donate them to a local charity. Decluttering your bedroom doesn’t have to be complicated — pick up anything you can see from surfaces like on top of dressers, nightstands, and corners! Make sure to sweep or vacuum before putting your personal items back where they belong. Washing the bedding will also bring a fresh feel to your room.
5. Clean Out The Garage
If you have a garage, this step can take a little time. You’ll want to start by sorting through boxes of old items and clothes that you’re no longer using or need. Decluttering the garage can be easy if you take on one corner at a time. Start by sorting through the boxes to see what you can donate or get rid of. Declutter as much as possible, and then hold a garage sale for any leftovers.
6. Declutter The Kids’ Rooms
Kids are messy by nature, but they will thrive in an organized and routine environment. Decluttering will give your kids’ room the space it needs for new things like art supplies, dress-up clothes, games…just about anything! Start by packing up clothes, toys, books that they’re no longer using or playing with and donating to a good cause.
7. Organize Storage Closets
Have you ever just thrown something in a closet and thought to yourself, “I will organize that later,” well, now is the time! Declutter by sorting items that are similar in size and shape together. Look for ways to store things vertically, folding clothes instead of stacking them on shelves or hanging shirts from the rod (more space!). Label bins, so you know where different types of clothing belong.
8. Decluttering The Outside Spaces
The outside spaces of your home are just as important to be decluttered as the inside. Declutter the sidewalk and driveway by sweeping away leaves, debris or snow. Declutter flowerbeds by removing dead plants or have been overrun with weeds and then divide up any sections that may need a little extra attention. Give each section its own planter for uninterrupted beauty without worrying about overgrown areas! If you have yard debris or green waste lying around, have it hauled away to avoid hazards.
