How To Declutter Your Home: 9 Tips To Help You Clear The Clutter

Simply + Fiercely

Your home should be an oasis—somewhere comforting where you can relax and recharge at the end of the long day. But if you’re like many people, walking through your front door only brings feelings of stress and overwhelm.

The culprit is clutter. When you have more stuff than you need or want, it stops adding value to your life. Instead, it drains you.

You can reclaim your time, money and energy by letting go. Here are 9 proven home decluttering tips that will help you clear your clutter for good.

Choose a small but meaningful project—something that won’t overwhelm you but will add a lot of value to your life.

Start with a meaningful decluttering project

Clutter often stems from a lack of clarity. If you don’t know what you want from your home, then it’s hard to set boundaries. Be clear about your goals and the purpose of each space.

Be clear about your goals

Once you know your goals, you can use them to write your own rules and declutter your house with ease. It’s not about what you should do; instead, it’s about what works for you.

Don’t be afraid to write your own rules

By deciding ahead of time what you’ll do with your stuff, you reduce decision fatigue. You’re also less likely to let emotions influence your choices.

Decide ahead of time what you’ll do with your decluttering

Set yourself a limit (say five minutes) and don’t spend longer than that on any one item. If you can’t decide what to do with something, put it aside and you can come back to it later.
