Outside the Box Decluttering Tips

  • Begin with just 5 minutes – If decluttering is something new to you, it’s a good idea to build momentum slowly with 5 minutes per day.
  • Give a Single Item Away Every Day – This means that in a year you are going to give away 365 items. Once you have given those away you have almost 400 items that are no longer cluttering your house.
  • Fill a Whole Trash Bag – Grab a bag and then fill that up as quickly as possible with items that can be donated at your local thrift store.
  • Donate Things You Don’t Wear – To figure out what items are, just hang up the clothes with your hangers hanging in the opposite direction. Once you have worn something, face your hanger the right way. After several months, discard those items that you didn’t touch.
  • Make a Checklist for Decluttering – It’s much easier to start decluttering once you have something that you can see to tell you where to start.
  • Do the Challenge Known as 12/12/12 – Locate 12 items that you can donate, 12 that you can toss, and 12 that you can keep and put in their right spot.
  • View Your House as a Visitor It’s simple to forget what the house looks like to someone coming there for the first time. Go into it like you are seeing it for the first time. Jot down first impressions about how organized and clean the house is and then make some changes.
  • Take Before/After Pics of Small Areas – Choose a single part of the house, such as the kitchen counter. Then take a picture. Clean off those items in the picture and then take a second picture. After you’ve seen the way that the house could look, it’s going to become a lot easier to begin much more decluttering.
  • Ask a Friend to Help – Have a family member or friend go through the house and suggest some things that you can donate or throw away. If you want to keep the item, it’s essential that the person agrees with the reason for keeping it. If they don’t, you’ll have to let it go.
