Having a lot of clutter in your home, whether it’s shelves heaving with knickknacks, a bursting wardrobe, or overflowing boxes of paperwork, makes it more difficult to clean. It’s also bad news for your , as many studies have shown.
A well-organised house can give you a sense of control, and make you feel more on your work and on the future. The thought of tackling years of clutter can seem off-putting, but the rewards of a cleaner, tidier home will be well worth the effort. Here are some tips to get started.
1. Don’t try to do it all at once
Break the task into smaller sections, which you can tackle one day at a time. This will stop you getting bored or discouraged, and you will have a sense of achievement at the end of it. For example, you could go through a bulging wardrobe, and divide the items into a pile for keeping, a charity shop or selling pile, and a recycling or mending pile.
2. Be strict!
If you tend to veer on the side of caution, try to be firm about what you really need. If something is broken or out of date, but you keep it ‘just in case’, either mend it or get rid of it. Once you have taking something to the recycling depot or charity shop, it is unlikely you will ever think about it again.
3. Minimise your book and DVD collections
Unless you know you will re-read a book or use it for reference, or will pass it onto family or friends at some point, you do not need it! The same applies to DVDs and CDs. These are bulky items that people tend to hang onto, despite never looking at them. It is easy enough to replace items digitally, if you find that you really need to see or read it again.
