We all know and use term “spring cleaning”. But let’s talk de-cluttering. There has never been a more perfect time to get junk and unnecessary items out of your home. Trust me, the time is now.
Yep. You heard that right!
Being quarantined at home gives you the opportunity to do a little bit of decluttering everyday.
I know what you’re thinking……
“I’m still working and have to deal with the kids being at home as well.”
Yes, I understand that there’s work to be done. But guess what, there will always be work to be done. It’s a matter of what you choose to create time for.
Think about it this way. Do a little bit of decluttering everyday. Focus on a room per day or just a section of a room. You can even set a timer for 10 minutes everyday as you work your way through the house. Think about this 10 minutes as the time you would have spent in traffic while commuting to or from work. And I’m sure most work commutes are longer than 10 minutes for a lot of people. So you really don’t have any excuse to not do something everyday.
I know what else you’re thinking……
“Even if I get to cleaning and decluttering, I cannot take the items to a donation center because they’re closed.“
Guess what? You don’t need to get rid of those items right away.
Decide on a designated area in your home to pile the items that will be donated. Placed labeled cardboard boxes around the home or in each room to reduce any frustration of piling things up everywhere. You can eventually transfer these boxes to your garage, shed or basement until donation centers open.
Let me guess. Now you’re thinking “I can’t do this all by myself.”
Well, get everyone involved! Especially for the bedrooms. Instruct every member of your home to remove clothes, books, toys, bedding, etc. that are no longer needed or being used and place them in designated boxes.
Viola! Now the only areas that need extra attention are common living areas and possibly the home’s storage areas – basements, attics, etc.
Now that we’ve gotten through all your concerns, here’s how I can make Spring decluttering really EASY for YOU!
