Tips for Decluttering Your Apartment
When your apartment is cluttered, it the task of decluttering might be too overwhelming to even think about actually doing. But if you take the time to do it, you will be grateful for the extra space you have and may love spending time in your apartment even more. If you’re ready to declutter your apartment, follow these simple steps:
- Take things one room at a time – To make the task seem less daunting, you should declutter your apartment one room at a time. Seeing what one room can look like after its been cleaned up can give you the motivation to tackle the rest of your apartment.
- Create a sorting system – Make three piles, one for things you want to keep, one for things you want to throw away, and one for things you want to donate. Then, take action and make sure that you throw away or donate the items in those two piles immediately, so those items don’t end up back where they started.
- Consider the 6-month rule – If you’re having trouble deciding if you should keep something or throw it away, use the 6-month rule. This means if you haven’t used an item in 6 months, and don’t plan on using it in the next 6 months, it may be best to just get rid of it.
