Clutter can start off small: A misplaced object here, some dirty laundry scattered about there.It always seems like such a simple mess at first but clutter can build up into something problematic. You might as well deal with it as soon as possible.
Fortunately, here’s a straightforward and highly effective way to get rid of clutter:
Do a general sweep
It doesn’t take very long to do a general sweep and pick up the clutter as you go through your home. You simply take a bin or a container and search your house for any clutter. Go from room to room and keep your eyes peeled for items that should be stored away or discarded.
Though this might take a while, but you will realize the amount of clutter your home actually contains.
A clean and organized bedroom
This is where you start off and end your day, so it’s best to clear it of clutter first thing in the morning.
Make your bed, pick up spare sheets, and throw any dirty laundry you may have tossed on the floor the previous day. Finally, make sure to store all your items in their proper containers. You can reuse old shoe boxes for storing things like art materials or old family photos. You can also add dividers inside your drawers so you have separate storage for jewelry, hair care products, and other things.
Keeping your kitchen fresh
Don’t just leave dirty dishes in the sink. Make a habit out of washing them immediately after every meal. Moreover, spare food and ingredients should be returned to the fridge or to their respective containers. It’s important to keep them sealed to maintain freshness.
Any cooking utensils should also be returned. Never let knives lie about waiting to get picked up by a child.
Organizing your bathroom counters
Toothbrushes can be left lying around after you use them. The same goes for makeup and grooming products.
That said, make sure to organize your bathroom counters by throwing away empty bottles and containers. Also, make it a part of your routine to empty out the trash bin.
