No more being afraid to have friends and families come over to a messy-dirty looking home.
When you eventually determine to declutter your home, do not attempt to get it done all in one single day. This is a common newbie mistake. A good idea is to do one room at a time and make sure that you can actually see it through from beginning to end. If you realize your home is steadily becoming cleaner everyday, you’ll feel much better about continuing to finish decluttering and cleaning the whole house. The room that you use most should be the one you clean first. So maybe start with the bedroom, kitchen, living room, bathroom, other rooms…
There are cartons and bins you can get from your local shop to easily organize your stuff. These may be stored under beds, closets, as well as in any attic space you’ve got.
What’s the strategy to go about selecting what items you want or don’t want anymore?
It’s common for many hoarders to keep clothes, books, magazines, and other useless junk by the notion that they simply might need these items some day in the future. There’s really no magic number to this, but if you haven’t used or seen something in the last 3 months, throw it away. Like a book or an old painting that hasn’t been looked at for years.
What to do with useless junk? One man’s garbage may be another man’s gold. So sell them at a garage sale, sell on ebay, give to charity, recycle them, just don’t keep on hoarding!
Before you know it, you’ll have a million dollar looking decluttered, clean home…
