Need to declutter your house?
Maybe you want to clean up so that you can sell the property, rent it out, or … well, maybe you just want to live in a cleaner environment.
Fortunately, decluttering doesn’t need to be a long and arduous process.
Quite a bit of progress can be made in just 10 minutes by following some simple steps. Also there’re a wealth of resources to look into, because decluttering your house, is not just to make it look neat, believe it or not, it also has proven health benefits as discussed in the following articles published in WebMd.com, ABCnews.com, this website and this one too. You don’t need to become Marie Kondo, but getting to work on organizing your house has multiple benefits! 😉
From our years of experience in real estate over at Green Sur Properties, here’s what we recommend:
• List Your Rooms From Least Dirty To Dirtiest — The first step is to make a list of the rooms or areas of the house that need to be cleaned. Start with the easiest room and work your way toward the most-cluttered. This helps with getting into the cleaning flow.
• Prepare To Get Rid Of Stuff — There’s no way around it. To declutter your home, you’ll have to get rid of some stuff. So expect to, and be ready to, make decisions about what’s staying and what’s going.
• Purchase Storage Containers — A great way to make a home less cluttered while also keeping some of the things you love is by purchasing elegant storage containers. There are containers that fit in with bookshelves or even act as a desk or nightstand. Get creative!
• Take Baby Steps — Everything doesn’t need to be done in one day. Spend just 30 minutes per day cleaning and you’ll be surprised at how quickly your home becomes decluttered.
