How to Declutter your Home

Decluttering can be a challenge, but it feels SO good once you’re done! Try the box method to make the process a bit easier.

Box 1: Trash—All those old magazines, holey socks, and dried-out pens go here. Put things that you want to get rid of AND that aren’t worth donating or selling in this box.

Box 2: Sell/Donate—Throw all the items you could do without into box 2. All the old books, clothes, or toys that are still in OK condition go in here! Whether you want to give these things away to family/friends, donate them, or sell them to make a little extra money is totally up to you.

Box 3: Storage—Put everything that you can’t or don’t want to get rid of, but that you aren’t in need of on a day-to-day basis in this box. Holiday decorations, out of season clothes, and dishes for dinner parties belong here.

Box 4: Put Away—Place any items that need to be kept in the house in your house, but relocated to their proper place. If you want to get really organized, you can have a few smaller boxes — one each for places like your bathroom, kitchen, or bedrooms. Sort misplaced items into their “homes” to save yourself the hassle later.

Box 5: Repair—Throw items that you want to keep but need a little fixer-upping in this box, like a watch that needs a new battery. You can also throw in things you want to keep but need to be replaced like running shoes that need new soles.

I think you’ll find that the box method makes decluttering much more manageable. Have you tried the box method before? Let me know in the comments!
