4 Useful tips to Declutter Your Home

Christmas lights that don’t work, three boxes labeled and tucked away in the garage. A shelf of neatly stacked notebooks filled with recipes, phone numbers, and addresses of old friends and family members dating back to the 1950’s. A dozen casserole lids, but no dishes and enough yarn to knit sweaters for everyone on the block and then some.

It’s hard to argue that most of us have a little too much stuff. Whether you are moving, spring cleaning, your home is starting to look like a garbage can or your backyard looks more like a junkyard, getting rid of your stuff can be difficult

Does this junk war sound all too familiar?! If so, here are 4 useful tips to de-clutter your home or office in Kansas City without guilt!
1. Don’t do it all at once
Set a timeline to go through all your old stuff. Book time over the course of several weeks or even months (depending on how much stuff you have), and have specific goals for each session. Then divide each room and schedule exactly what you plan to de-clutter at any given time. Make sure to book this time on your calendar.

Getting rid of your stuff can already be difficult. Trying to do it all at once can make the experience overwhelming and unpleasant. Telling yourself you can go through everything in a couple of sittings is probably very unrealistic. Give yourself time.

2. No maybes – only yes or no
Before you start anything, agree with yourself to only make a yes or no decision about everything. There are no “maybes”, just yes or no! Start by identifying all your junk. Some will be easy and some will be hard.

Ask yourself these questions:

• Is this item really needed?
• Do I have a place to store it?
• How much extra work will this possession add to my life?
• Am I keeping it for the right reasons?
Tip: If you have something of sentimental value to declutter take a photo of the item, this will help you purge the junk!

3. The 4-box method
