I’m writing this post whilst taking a break from an evening of packing for our first home. Before tonight, I didn’t realise quite how much stuff we had. Just as a heads up, it’s a lot. As the house we’re buying isn’t huge, we’re having to have a good sort out to decide what we actually need. Therefore, I wanted to share my top five tips for decluttering.
As the house we’re buying isn’t huge, we’re having to have a good sort out to decide what we actually need. It’s taking so much longer than I expected it to but as we’re moving in two weeks today and we’re away next weekend, it’s time to get a wriggle on.
Therefore, as an excuse to take a break, I wanted to share my top three tips for decluttering:
- Use the three-month rule – Have you used or worn this item in the past three months? Nope? Then get rid of it.
- Donate to charity – Is the item in good condition but not receiving the love that it deserves from you? Donate it to charity for somebody else to enjoy whilst also helping to raise funds for a worthy charity too.
- Do you love it? – Sometimes, we have to be ruthless when decluttering. As much as I love holding onto that dress I wore on a night out, I know that I won’t wear it again and sometimes that’s a sign that it’s time to get rid of it…
