Whether you are preparing to sell, simplifying your life or just doing an annual fall clean-out, decluttering is often one of the most challenging tasks of home ownership. While it may seem tempting to sort through the entire home at once, trying to tackle such a large project in such a short time will leave any homeowner frustrated. Following these essential decluttering tips will make your job much easier.
- Allow plenty of time – start decluttering a few months in advance of a potential move, if possible.
- Make a list of items you cannot live without.
- Choose storage containers that are attractive and make the most use of space.
- Donate any furniture that you don’t need or want anymore.
- Donate or discard anything you haven’t used in the past year.
- Ask a friend or family member for objective advice.
- Keep furniture that serves more than one purpose.
