Top 10 Easy Decluttering Tips

Top 10 tips to De-cluttering

I've previously mentioned that I am currently on a journey to live a more minimalistic lifestyle to create a de-cluttered, clean space that is mentally relaxing. I'm not there yet but I'm making progress and hope to be there by the end of the year.

As I slowly transform my home, I've realised that minimalism isn't just about decluttering. It's also about putting simple systems in place to ensure things don't go back to how they were.

Here are some of the systems I've implemented in my home so far to ensure things don't regress.

  1. Everything should belong somewhere. When everything has a place to go it makes tidying up a doddle.

  2. Adding wooden drawer dividers in kitchen, bathroom and bedroom drawers cheaply, and easily transforms a messy drawer into an organised, pleasant space. I can find things quickly now and it looks great. You can easily get them from Amazon.

  3. Every time I pass the dining table, I put one thing away. This has kept my dining table clear of clutter. It was previously a dumping ground for letters, leaflets, keys and generally all things odd. Of course, you can do this with any flat surface.

  4. Store Tupperware containers with their lids on. This was gold for me. We had so many odd plastic containers without lids which just created a mess in the kitchen cupboard. It felt great to bin many of them and just keep a handful...with lids on.

  5. Keep spices on a two-tier carousel. Recommended by a friend, this made it so easy for me to see and access my spices.

  6. Hang a squidgy in the shower to easily clean the glass or tiles. I got a stainless steel one from Amazon and it looks really stylish actually.

  7. At the end of the day, decide if clothes go in the laundry basket or get put away. This stops clothes from being thrown over a chair, bed or even the floor.

  8. Have a charity box or bin bag that is gradually filled up during the week or month and then delivered to the charity shop each week/month.

  9. One in, One out. If I buy an item of clothing, then another item of clothing has to go.

  10. Remove anything from the kitchen countertop that isn't used daily and keep it in a kitchen cupboard. Bye-bye toasted sandwich maker...

These are just some of the approaches that have helped me move towards minimalism so far. I can feel the peace flow over me already...💜✨
