Over the year it is very easy for your home to fill up with clutter, keeping personal items for sentimental reasons even though they are stashed in a cupboard out of sight.
It is a habit that most people fall into and to deal with it requires a tough approach.
Make a conscious decision to stop buying unwanted items, from now on before any purchase pose yourself the question ”Do I really need this” and act on the answer. Even if someone offers to give you something politely refuse rather than take it home.
In case you are overawed by the sheer volume of the clutter problem in your home, break down by tackling one room at a time. That way you will see results and also continue to maintain your new junk free space with ease.
If time is a problem just set aside half an hour every day or maybe an hour at the weekend. Don’t let a busy schedule halt the home improvement process or process of sorting out the mess. In reality once you have a more organised and efficient place to live, things will be easier to find.
Emotional attachments to certain items will be difficult to break. However there is a world of difference between a treasured possession and an old piece of junk. You must try and be strong and let go wherever possible.
Perhaps hold a yard sale where you can see other people benefiting from what you don’t really need. Once you have less clutter filling up your home, outlook of your home will change and life will be a lot easier on a day to day basis [Home makeover tips].
