5 Ways To Live A Life Uncluttered
You only need 5 or perhaps 10 minutes to get started today. If you want to take the first step to simplifying your inner and outer life then uncluttering just one small area in your home is a great way to get started. Here is a simple process for decluttering any space in your home.
- Pick a counter, shelf or drawer in your home.
Clear off or empty out all of its contents and put it into one big pile ready to sort through. Decision Time. Make quick, decisive and straightforward choices about each item in the pile, one thing at a time. For every item ask yourself: Have I used this in the past year? And if not, then it is pretty safe to assume that you probably won’t use it in the future.
- Donate/give it away or throw it out?
If you are not keeping it then consider giving it to someone else you think could make use of it, or you can donate it to your local charity. Have a box or bag available for either purpose. If you decide to throw it away then have a trash bag handy for all the trash items.
- Homing Kept Items
If you choose to keep it, then find an appropriate home for it. Having a permanent home for each item where you can return it after using it will reduce the weekly clutter in your home and make it easier to always find the item when you need it.
- Time-Limit Uncertain Items
Uncertain? If you are unsure of which category to place the item then put it into a time limited storage box for something like 3 or 6 months, but not longer. Record the date on the outside of the box when you started it. If in 3 or 6 months you still haven’t used any items remaining in there then it’s pretty safe to say you can let them go.
