Decluttering Tips

Stay Connected

I have been on a decluttering frenzy lately so I thought I would share some tips with you that have really been helping keep my house looking better everyday.

Mail- go through your mail everyday. Throw away the junk mail and put your bills that need to be paid where you put them or pay them. I try to pay all my bills online which helps with the paper clutter.

Donation bin- I keep a basket in our bedroom behind our chair as a donation bin. If I try on clothes and I don’t like how they fit or they just don’t fit I put them directly in the bin and as soon as it is fills up I put everything in a bag and take it to Goodwill.

Donation bin

Only touch once- if you pick something up in a room that doesn’t belong there immediately take it to the room it belongs in.  You can use this same rule with mail.

One in one out rule- If you go and buy a new shirt, look through your shirts and find a shirt that you don’t like as much or how it fits and throw it in the donation bin

Books- As soon as I finish a book if I am not going to read it again I donate it to our local library or give it to someone who I think might enjoy it

Magazines-we sell our magazines after we read them to Half Price books-we wait until there is a large pile and then take them and in and sell them

Do you have any decluttering tips to share?
