If there is one thing that can ruin the beauty of your home, it is the unnecessary clutter. Do you genuinely need two sets of those can opener or that load of clothing you don’t wear but preserve for later?
A few rules to follow is all it takes to make your space a clutter-free haven.
- Be rational and think with an open mind.
Don’t waste your space with items that have lost their charm or are adding to your daily clutter just because you like them. Ask yourself if you need another faded bedsheet just because it has your favourite character printed on it. The more you say “No,” the better you get at avoiding temptations to get certain ‘not-so-useful- things home.
- Store them rather than stack
Use storage boxes with labels to categorize everything. They are versatile in use and can minimize space usage by vertical as well as horizontal compartmentalization. Best of all, you know what lies where and do not have to wade through to find them.
- Routined organizing
We all love that one chair which is hidden under a heap of clothes. Spare some time at the end of each day to clean up the laundry and organize the drawer. If the everyday mess is gone by the end of the day, you don’t have to waste your time finding things that may be lying in the pile created throughout the week or month.
- Take inspiration from minimalism.
Minimalist living is an inspiring approach to life. Simply living with basic minimal necessities not only saves space and money but also reduces wastage remarkably. Take inspiration from such practice and start following a similar routine. In no time, you will have a spacious area to call home.
- Go paper-free
Do you know how much paper an average household has in their home? Half the useless clutter are bills, paper bags, and newspapers. Today almost everything is digital. From receipts to payments, it’s all just a click away. As a bonus, you can’t stop smiling at the thought that you saved a tree each time you said no to paper.
- Make Donation a habit.
You are lucky to afford to have three sets of cutleries when someone somewhere doesn’t even have one. So, what if it is something that can be used later? Give away that extra pair of jeans or shirt or even a bedsheet to someone who needs it more. What you may or may not need later can be very helpful for someone right now.
Life is ten times easier without mess and clutter around. Besides that, there is no denying that a spacious area is much more appealing and mentally relaxing to live in.
Have you ever come home tired from work and wondered why you have the flashy-looking flower vase at the entrance? The moment you avoid coming home to a restful paradise is when you realise it’s time to clean up and organize your happy place.
