Have you ever looked around and realized you’re surrounded by clutter? Are your cabinets full of miscellaneous trinkets you can’t quite find a use for? Are your drawers and closets overflowing with old clothes? If this sounds familiar to you, it may be time to declutter your home or self storage facility.
Noah’s Ark Self Storage understands that organization can be an overwhelming and daunting task, especially if there’s a considerable amount of items to tackle. There’s no need to worry – with our decluttering tips, we can make organizing your space as simple as possible and on your terms!
Divide And Conquer
Remember that there’s no need to clean your whole space in one go! When it comes to a large-scale decluttering session, keep in mind that tackling one section at a time is the most beneficial. If you focus all your energy and time on one place, you’ll be able to achieve more in a day than if you tried to do everything at once.
For instance, if you’re organizing your room, you can aim to collect the inside of your closet for the day. Don’t be afraid to break it down into smaller sections – if you feel overwhelmed by the entire closet, focus on one shelf or section at a time. Try your best to stick to your area before moving on to the next. Eventually, you’ll work your way to cleaning up your entire space!
Fill A Trash Bag
If you have many things in one room, an excellent way to start decluttering is deciding on which items to throw away or donate. Designate one trash bag for trash, one for donating and one for things you’ll place in a self storage unit.
Go around your space and throw the belongings in their designated trash bag – try not to dwell on any one item. If it’s something you don’t actively use or feel sentimental about, it’s probably a sign that you don’t need it.
If you’re feeling incredibly indecisive and have difficulty deciding if you want to keep something, you can also create a trash bag for “maybe” items! Put items in there and come back to them later.
5 Minutes A Day
It’s natural to want to procrastinate decluttering when you know it’ll take a long time. Many of us don’t have the time every day to dedicate hours to organizing a space, especially if there’s lots of work that needs to be done. Organization also isn’t always the most “fun” activity to do – the last thing anyone wants to do after coming back from a long day is to do more work.
A way to combat this is to dedicate a small amount of time each day to organizing your space. Just five minutes a day can make a significant difference over time. Once you get into the habit of taking time to organize your space, it’ll feel like second nature. You might even find yourself feeling relaxed by the routine and satisfied with the result.
