Its January – a month where most of us decide to get a little more organised – and with that tends to come the need for a bit of decluttering.
We have had the excesses of Christmas – the house is probably fuller than its been all year thanks to Christmas presents, extra food and bits for guests etc…. – and its time to get sorted. So I thought that now was the perfect time to write a post on the method I use to declutter any part of the house – whether it be a drawer, a cupboard, or an entire room.
STEP ONE – Decide on what you will declutter
Its important to identify where you are going to tackle when you set out to declutter – as the scope can change as you go, and overwhelm can easily set in.
If you have a very cluttered space, then consider starting small with a drawer or a cupboard first so you can see progress and gather momentum.
If the room isn’t too bad, then do the whole room.
Work how you prefer, and with what you feel comfortable with given the time you have available.
