The Top Five Golden Rules of Decluttering

Our busy hectic lifestyle leads to accumulated lots of stuff. Consequently your home becomes cluttered and space more scarce. It’s time  you realize that you need to simplify your life and create more space. 

Five Golden Rules of Decluttering 

Follow these five golden rules to declutter your home and free up more space in your life. 

One – Rid Your Home of Duplicates 

Get rid of any duplicates if they are not necessary. Donate or trash the lesser duplicate. 

Two –  Get Rid of Anything You Haven’t Used Over a Year 

Anything that you haven’t used in the past year is just taking up space. Create more space, simply.

Three – Digitize Photos / Documents / Mementos 

Got nostalgic items you can’t part with? Preserve those memories by digitizing them with a lasting photo or video. Give it up, to create a clutter free lifestyle.

Four – Sell, Donate, Upcycle, Recycle, Toss It 

Don’t get hung up on turning a profit selling things. List it online, pricing it under what similar items are going for. If it doesn’t sell in a week, don’t just toss it in the trash, donate it to charity. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. 

Five – Go Vertical

Utilize the vertical space in your home. Build shelves and rethink every room in your home to create more space 

Remember – 

It doesn’t matter how much you paid for something that no longer has any use or holds any value to you. If it doesn’t make you look or feel amazing, it’s taking up valuable real estate in your space. Get rid of it! 

Still need more space? 

For many of us, there just isn’t enough available space in our home for everything we own. Self storage eliminates the need to move to a larger apartment or opt for an expensive office lease.
