Decluttering—does that word strike fear into your heart? It’s a common feeling. After all, you are ripping yourself away from belongings you’ve held on to for a long time.
Whatever the case, there are a few simple ways to keep yourself from being stressed out throughout the process. Here are our simple tips for doing so.
Do it One Room at a Time
That’s right, don’t tackle your entire home at once. Instead, cut your project down room by room. Focus on decluttering maybe your bedroom first. Schedule a day a bit later to work in your children’s bedroom. Just take the approach that you can do it one room at a time to maximise the results and reduce your stress.
Take Your Time
This is especially true if you’re moving. Our house clearance Manchester based services are designed to take as much of the load off your shoulders as we can, but we can’t declutter your home for you. That’s why we highly recommend starting the decluttering process much earlier. Get it done first so you can leave the packing and moving to our team.
Start by making a list of everything you know you want to keep, and then a separate list of everything you need—TVs etc. That reduces everything down to your must-haves. This also allows you to focus on that which is most important. Dump the movies, CDs, books and everything else that doesn’t have a purpose or that doesn’t get used anymore. You’ll be surprised by how helpful this can be.
Your home is probably lived in by more than just you. Don’t let your family get off the hook for decluttering your property. Enlist their help by giving them lists to follow. Ask them to throw away anything of theirs that they don’t use or won’t use in the future.
