Our top 8 decluttering tips

  1. Before you start, get three separate bin bags or boxes and label them “keep”, “charity” and “bin”.
  2. Decide which room or space to focus on for your session – don’t overwhelm yourself and try to do it all in one go, remember Rome wasn’t built in a day!
  3. Stay focused on the task in hand and try not to get distracted (easier said than done…!).
  4. Try not to overthink your decisions – if it doesn’t have sentimental value and you haven’t touched the item in over 12 months, it’s time for it to go to a new home.
  5. Remember decluttering is not a negative process it’s a positive journey which will give you a sense of clarity and calm.
  6. Think about how you want to feel in your home and keep reminding yourself of why you’re taking this step.
  7. Plan for your “charity” and “bin” bags or boxes to be disposed of soon after your decluttering session.
  8. Keep up the momentum – if you’ve got a couple of rooms or even a whole house you would like to declutter, commit to a date and time each week to help you keep chipping away. You’ll see real progress in no time.

Happy decluttering – and remember if you need a helping hand, get in touch with us at Summerbell Services!
