Declutter Your Home in 21 Days
Keeping your house clean and organized in our busy lives is not easy. De-cluttering and getting rid of things that just take up space is one way of easing this process.
With the holiday hustle and bustle behind his, I like to start focusing on the year ahead. One of the things I like to do in the New Year is cleaning my house. This is not a spring clean, which will come later when I can open up the windows and air out the house after a long winter. However much I love Christmas, it is always nice to put thing back in order and give the house a good clean.
During the time I worked, this was spread out over many days. Now that I am retired, I have used some of my time in re-organizing my home, and getting rid of excess clutter.
I foresee that getting back after the holiday season should be easier this year. Not just for the fact that I have more time. But because I got rid of a lot of stuff in the past year. When you subscribe to my blog, you have the option to receive my e-book about de-cluttering. (Leave me a note if you did not receive it with your subscription and I will send you the link!)
In this short e-book, you will find some handy tips on how to decide what to keep and what to toss. Included is a handy checklist.
In addition to this e-book and checklist, this new info-graphic from HappyCleans looks at ways you can transform your home in just 21 days. I hope that you will be able to stick with it and turn your home around. Do not be let yourself get overwhelmed if you cannot finish everything in 21 days! Rome was not built in 21 days, and you did not accumulate your stuff in 21 days! It is however a handy tool, together with my e-book, to guide you through the process of de-cluttering your house on a step by step approach.
Paper is an item people needlessly store a lot of, and the reality is much of this can be thrown out or recycled. On day one, it is a good time to start sorting through all paperwork such as bills, receipts and anything else that has been piling up for months.
Magazines and books are other items that have a bad habit of sitting on shelves and gathering dust. Moreover, many of these will go unread for years so there is little need to keep them in your house. Sort through everything; figure out what you need you need to keep and consider donating the rest to charity. DVDs and CDs fall into a similar category and many of these just sit idly by in your home without ever being used. Check out the full info-graphic now and begin your de-cluttering journey today!
