Declutter and Organize Your Home

 

If you have a clutter in your home that you want to organize, you may feel overwhelmed and not know where to start. It's understandable, life gets busy and organization falls by the wayside! When there is clutter and disorganization in your home, it's difficult to find things when you need them, which can lead to stress and anxiety. Conversely, when your space is decluttered and organized, you will be more relaxed, have a clean space for creativity, you will be able to find things when you need them, and have more overall peace of mind.


Some of you may love to clean and organize (I'm in this camp too), but I realize that the majority of people don't want to spend their free time decluttering and feel they have better things to do! So with that in mind, I have listed 10 easy tips to help you declutter and organize so you can get back on track in no time at all!


This post is packed full of informative, fun, and useful information! I'm sharing with you my 10 favorite tips for decluttering and organization (and how to stay that way), my recommended 5 best organization books for further inspiration, and my FREE Printable Project Planner!

10 Simple Steps to Declutter and Get Organized


1. Clean as You Go - If you have one take-away from this list, this is the one strategy to start and end with. When you make the "clean as you go" method a habit, your home will always be picked up and less overwhelming to clean. For example: when the mail is delivered, open it and deal with it that day. It only takes a few minutes and you will avoid a pile of overwhelming unopened mail sitting on your kitchen counter to be dealt with all at once (and potentially miss something important). Another example: when you're preparing a meal put things away and do the dishes in the time between prepping and cooking. Clean up as soon as the meal is finished for an always ready and organized kitchen. Be sure to check out Aunt Fannie's Safe and Sustainable Cleaning Supplies!
