I’m going to share with you creative decluttering ideas that can help you get rid of the clutter in your life and feel like a new person. It doesn’t seem like it but it’s true. Getting into clutter is one of the top reasons people feel like they can’t achieve anything in their lives. It seems like there’s always a task, a chore, or a project that we feel like we have to do.
If you’re like me, it can be hard to get rid of the things that bring up such emotions as sadness or anger in us. That’s why it can be very helpful to create a “list” of the things you have to get rid of first before moving on to the more challenging projects. For instance, if you’re cleaning out the garage, you could make a list of the items in the house, sort them out from the most needed to the ones that are just thrown around. By doing this, you’ll be able to declutter fast and get rid of the things that no longer serve any purpose for you.
Another great way to declutter fast is to hack away at your to-do list with software designed specifically to help you declutter fast. There are dozens of these programs available to purchase or download for a low price on the internet. The great thing about these tools is that they’re packed with tips, tricks and techniques that can save you a TON of time.
Some of the best decluttering tips I’ve ever received were from people who have gone on amazing ten-day stints of decorating their homes from scratch. What they did was basically throw everything out and build a wall-to-wall headboard on the beginning of their home organized. They used these headboards to hang all their decor, from picture frames to lampshades to old pictures of family and friends. Amazingly, they haven’t missed a beat. So if you want to learn some creative decluttering ideas for apartment living, read on to find out more about these incredible homeowners.
In addition to these creative solutions for apartment living, another great idea to stay away from clutter is having lots of unopened Christmas gift baskets and wrapping paper stored in the garage. This seems to be the year’s new favorite way to stay away from the chaos of the holiday season. I have even seen people turn these garage storage areas into extra living spaces by putting several couches and chairs in there for guests to sit and enjoy. If you have extra unused garage space, make it work for you and clutter in the most creative way possible.
Decluttering doesn’t have to be a chore. Sometimes, it just feels daunting because of the underlying reasons you are procrastinating. Most people get into procrastination for a number of reasons. Whether it is because you are sleep deprived, or you feel like it is too much work, just give it a try.
When it comes to decluttering, try putting something else on your priority list. If it is important that you not see the clutter, do not put it off. You may feel light headed, trying to concentrate, but just rearranging furniture and getting things in order would help you feel lighter, especially after you get your first few nights of sleep. Of course, this does not mean that you should not rearrange anything at all but just give it a chance.
Another tip to help you declutter is to know which values we possess and which values provide us with more happiness and peace of mind. Knowing these values makes it easier to know what to put on our priority list when we are decluttering. For example, do not put off doing your taxes until you have the time to do so. This knowledge will help you get your tax return done efficiently and on time, and will also make it easier for you to get organized and to know which of your items and belongings are most important to you.
