We all want to start new resolutions when the new year starts, and there is no better way to do that then by decluttering your life a bit. There are so many great ways to Declutter not only space in your home, but that also means space in your mind.
The first thing I do right after the holidays is Declutter my home. It starts in my closet, and I will end up with 4 or 5 bags full to drop off at shelters and churches. It’s such a great feeling, and even though I still love a lot of it, I know it’s helping out so many more people in need. My pantry also gets a clean up, throwing out snacks, and half bags full of stuff, and placing them with nice canisters. It’s such a great feeling in your home and in your mind. Nothing is better than when you have a place for everything. It also lowers stress levels, and keeps your mind healthier. Here are some great de cluttering tips for yourself.
–when cleaning out anything in your home, ask yourself if you will wear it in the next month, and if you haven’t worn it in over a year, someone else will. Give it away. Make bags for shelters and churches. There are a lot of people that could use that stuff.
– don’t try to do all of it in one day. Pick an area once a week and work on it.
– throw out all old papers or calendars. It’s a new year, you don’t need them. Decluttering also has a lot to do with your handbag. Get that handbag organized.
– get a calendar for the new year and keep all your appointments, and games and practices, ect, written down, so that your not forgetting important tasks.
– decluttering also has a lot to do with who you surround yourself with. Place yourself around swimmers not sinkers. There are a lot of them out there. People that are so worried about what other people are saying or doing are the first to separate from.
