Donate or sell items that are in good condition but that you no longer use.
Create a system for the things you keep. Whether it’s organizing by category, color, or another system, find a way to keep the things you love in an easily accessible place.

3 Useful Ways to Begin Decluttering Your Home
If you’re like most people, your home is probably full of things you don’t need. From clothes you never wear to old books and toys, it can be difficult to let go of things. But decluttering your home can be liberating and it’s a great way to start fresh.
Here are some useful ways to begin (or continue) decluttering your home:
Start with one room at a time.
Don’t try to tackle your whole house all at once. It will be overwhelming and you’ll likely get discouraged. Start with one room and work your way through it. If you’re continuing your decluttering efforts from above, what is the next space you’re going to tackle?
If you’re having trouble getting rid of things, ask yourself if you really need it. If the answer is no, then get rid of it.
Decluttering your home will take time and it won’t happen overnight. Be patient and keep at it and eventually you’ll have the decluttered home you’ve been wanting. If you’re easily overwhelmed, I suggest that you set your timer for 15 minutes at a time. If you do this for a week, it will add up.
Alright, now you’re getting into the groove.
Let’s keep going with more decluttering ideas. Here are a few more decluttering tips.
3 More Tips and Tricks For Your Decluttering Journey
Make a list of all the areas in your home that need decluttering. This will help you focus your efforts and make a plan of attack. Especially if you’re continuing to set your timer for 15 minutes at a time.
Try the “one in, one out” rule. For every new item that comes into your home, get rid of one that you don’t need. This will help keep your home from getting cluttered in the first place.
Use storage bins and baskets to organize items and keep them from taking over your home. This will help you stay organized and make decluttering easier in the long run.
