Tips for Decluttering

  • Focus on those things you’re going to be keeping, instead of the ones you’re getting rid of. Know that you do not need all of those things. When you focus on what you do have, the idea of getting rid of the other items becomes a more positive experience overall. You want it to be a good one, and not a bad one.
  • Take it room by room when you’re going through your items. Try not to bounce around everywhere, since this can make things a bit harder and does not show progress. When you’re packing a room, go through the items at the same time. Throw them in a bag to go forever, or in a box to go to the new place.
  • Handle everything that you’re going through to find out if these are things you truly need and want to keep. Generally, if you want to get rid of them, then this can be the final process where you make the decision on whether or not you should.
  • Find the joy in getting rid of some of your stuff. Know that you’re packing and taking less with you, which means saving space and time. You’re also able to easier put your items where you want them to go in the new house, without all of the clutter.

Moving can be a stressful time, but you want to ensure that everything is covered in the process. If you want to get rid of some of the stuff that you would normally bring with you, then now is the perfect time to do so. New beginnings in a new place calls for new beginnings with the items that you use in the new place. Make a change for the better, and know that wide open spaces are much better than closed ones.
