Tips to Declutter Your Home
Tackle first the thing you’re dreading most. If you have a large amount of antique furniture that you don’t use but can’t bear to part with, set up a time to put it in storage. If you’re dreading the idea of going through the huge closet full of your kids’ outdated toys and LEGO sets, take a deep breath and face the beast head-on. After you’ve finally conquered your clutter, you’ll feel amazing and motivated to do more!
Don’t Cut Corners
Don’t think that you can stuff all of your items into your closet with the hopes that nobody will find them. A potential buyer will more than likely want to look inside. Decluttering bookshelves, desks, and other surfaces gives your home a clean landscape. The easiest way is to go item by item and decide what you can part with.
Find the Best Home for Your Items
Don’t feel guilty about getting rid of a large amount of your stuff. It certainly doesn’t need to go straight into the dumpster. See if you can sell unwanted items on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or consider donating your former valuables to a family in need!
