Tips to Downsize and Declutter Your Home
Moving a house can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. With the right equipment and guidance, you can make a move as smooth and painless as possible. Are you feeling a little overwhelmed as you look around your home? Maybe you’re starting to feel like everything is just a little too cluttered, and you don’t have room to breathe. Maybe you’re looking to downsize and declutter your home to declutter your life. This article will show you how to take the first steps toward decluttering and downsizing your home. We’ll provide tips on how to start, and we’ll also provide a checklist of items that you should keep in mind when decluttering. Let’s get started!
Downsize Bigger Kinds of Stuff
If you are downsizing and decluttering and have a large house, place only half your belongings in storage. The remaining items will remain at their current location to accommodate visitors and guests who may be coming over during this stressful time. This will sensitise you and make it easier for your movers to handle. It will also give you time to see what can be sold off or thrown away, which could also save on storage fees!
Start With The Kitchen
The kitchen is always a good place to start tackling any big project like cleaning out a messy pantry. This area usually receives a high impact from guests and customers who drop in unexpectedly, so it would be wise to organise this area as soon as possible before all the guests come over. Picking through items, looking for ones you don’t use, and organising them is helpful but not particularly exhausting.
The only physical space where messiness can run wild is our closets and drawers because those spaces will always provide more room to hide things behind other items than a small kitchen cabinet or drawer.
Take Small Stuff With You
Packing up and transporting the kitchen’s small stuff set for a new home means handling just about everything room by room. You can accomplish this with a booklet list of all your smaller items that are easy to move quickly without taking too much space in any single box or bag. Keeping put-away items separate from each other makes it more convenient when organising things because they fold conveniently into one bag that won’t leave too many empty spaces.
While packing up, take a moment to turn your attention away from digital devices. With all these electronic gadgets, phones, and tablets, charging quickly integrates them into almost every aspect of modern life because they’re only as good as their most frequent use! Stowing it in another room has its advantages but also requires that you figure out new routines first with everything else around before making any changes here.
Keep It Simple
You should strive for an organised kitchen to reduce the time it takes to cook and shorten meal preparation. Keeping your cooking toolkit simple, in small attractive boxes or bags that easily fit into any drawer space can quickly find a few things when needed.
Downsizing and decluttering the kitchen before beginning touch-up efforts is essential. And any hope at first to solve problem areas and tasks will be significantly simplified when you’ve started with a good foundation.
