While 2018 is already well underway, it’s not too late to start working towards some of your new year’s resolutions. If one of your resolutions was to give your home the thorough clean it desperately needs, now’s the time to get started. Knowing you need to clean your entire home can feel incredibly overwhelming, and this can make you continually procrastinate the task.
To make the process easier to handle, you should break it down into smaller, more manageable tasks. The first step is to rent Self Storage in Brunswick East from StoreLocal Northcote. Having access to a storage unit can make the decluttering process a whole lot easier.
Sort through each room
If you try to get your entire house decluttered all at once, you’ll quickly burn out and quit the task before it’s finished. Instead, tackle one room at a time. Start with a room that’s already moderately clean. This will allow you to tick a room off the list, which can feel incredibly motivating. Save the rooms you know are very cluttered for days when you’re particularly motivated.
Create piles of items
As you start sorting through a room, seperate your items into piles. There will be some items that are broken beyond repair, and these items can be thrown away. You’ll also find other items you no longer like or have a use for, and these can be donated to charity or friends. Finally, there will be items you want to keep but don’t necessary have room for in your home. These are the items you should move into your storage in Brunswick East.
Now you’ve decluttered the room, you know exactly what items need to be placed inside. If you can, try and rearrange the layout of the room. This can give you the feeling of a fresh start. Make sure you create a proper place for all the items you’re moving back into your room. Knowing exactly where everything belongs can help you maintain all the hard work you’ve just done.
You’ll need to set aside some time each week or month to do a little declutter of your home. Taking the time to do this on a regular basis can help you maintain the cleanliness and clutter free state of your home.
