Home Organization Tips for Decluttering

Do you find yourself overwhelmed with the clutter in your home? Is it time to declutter and organize your living space? In this blog post, we will explore some effective ways to clear out unnecessary items while preserving cherished memories.

How to Declutter Your Home in a Weekend

To begin with, it's advisable to start with one room at a time to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Next, sort the items into categories such as keep, trash or donate. Here’s where a friend or professional organizer can come in handy to help you make quick decisions so that you don't spend too much time deliberating over each item.

Don’t Touch It Unless You Need To

While some experts recommend holding every item to feel its emotional attachment, it may not be necessary. Instead, if you haven't touched something in a long time and don’t feel like you need it, consider letting it go without touching it. By removing that extra emotional connection, you can better grasp what needs to go away. It allows you to let go of things more easily and quickly.

Match Like Items Together and Label Them

Once you have sorted everything, you can place like items together to make finding them easier in the future. Label the containers clearly, so you don't waste any time searching for anything. This way, you'll know exactly where everything is, and it will save you from buying duplicates of items you already own.

Organizing your home is essential to creating a comfortable and welcoming living space. The process can seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be. By breaking it down into small sessions and enlisting the help of friends or professionals, you can declutter your home quickly and effectively. 

In addition to creating a more comfortable and welcoming living space, organizing your home can also save you money. By knowing exactly what you have and where everything is, you can avoid buying unnecessary items or duplicates of things you already own.

I have worked with Shelly on several of my houses over the past 15 years.  Super impressed with the virtual organizing, custom storage, and room designs offered by Shelly. She always has so many fantastic ideas.  She even provided a folding video which allowed us to fold our clothes so that we can see them without digging to find them which is very helpful with my 2 very busy teen boys.  I highly recommend her service to everyone!!!
