My last post addressed the subject of decluttering your mind. This post will show you how to declutter and organize your space.
Clutter and disorganization waste time, energy, and space. Organizing means that everything has a home so that it can be easily found, accessed, used, and put back.
Schedule It The first thing that you need to do is to schedule time for decluttering and organizing your space. There are many different scheduling approaches that you can choose from, such as the following: You can declutter and organize in micro-movements. This is a term coined by the author SARK which consists of taking tiny baby steps forward.
Micro-movements can consist of very short sessions that last from one to five minutes each. You can declutter and organize in fifteen minute sessions.
You can set aside one-hour-a-day to declutter. You can have a decluttering and organizing marathon that lasts three or four days. You can even create a schedule for decluttering and organizing in days by doing a little bit each day, every day of the year. How you choose to do it depends on what works best for your personality and your schedule.
Scheduling your decluttering time is key!
Designate a Purpose for Each Room Walk around your home and decide what activities you would like to carry out in each room, as well as the mood you would like each room to convey. Here are six examples for your home: The den can be designated as a place for the family to gather and watch television, play boardgames, bond, and have fun.
The mood you may want to foster here is comfort and connectivity.
You might want to create a spa-like environment in your bathroom so that it serves as a luxurious retreat. The purpose of the laundry room could be to wash, dry, fold, iron, and hang clothes and linens with minimal pileup.
You can define the kitchen as a place to prepare fresh, healthy food and snacks, and where each meal is a celebration. Maybe you want the master bedroom to be a romantic retreat. Your living room could be a place to entertain guests in an ambiance that is simple yet elegant, as well as serene and functional.
Identify Zones A room can have several different purposes. You need to identify the different activities that take place within each room and divide each room into zones. These zones will become the center for specific items related to the designated activity.
Set up your space so that everything that you need to accomplish a particular activity is close at hand. For example, you can create a library area in your living room and place most of the books in your home in this area.
You can also place a basket next to the chair in which you can keep magazines and newspapers.
Decide Where to Start Many people are tempted to begin their decluttering and organizational efforts by starting with drawers, the cabinet underneath the bathroom sink, the hallway-closet, and so on. First of all, you should start with the room that you use most often.Those of you who have followed me at least the past year may remember, that my husband and I went thorough a massive declutter throughout the house exactly one year ago.
A few years ago I had an a-ha moment during an organizing workshop at a blog conference I was attending. During the presentation the lovely speaker, Beth, discussed her laundry system and it was one of those moments where I thought, now gosh why didn’t I think of that.
