7 Ways to Combat Clutter in the New Year

The New Year is a time to start fresh. It brings the feeling of starting over, and an opportunity to improve all areas of your life. You can create an even better home for you and your family by decluttering and reorganizing.

 

Follow these tips for steps to de-clutter your home. 

1. Keep things at arm's reach- keep items you use daily within arm's reach., whether that's in a basket, on a shelf or in a cabinet.

2. Add shelves- If your home is cluttered adding more furniture won't help. Instead of adding a bookshelf or desk, add wall shelving. You will have room for books, picture frames and decorations, without cluttering your home with more furniture.

3. 12-12-12 - This challenge comes from BecomingMinimalist.com, and is a simple project to add to your routine. Clean and organize by choosing 12 items to throw away, 12 items to donate, and 12 to return to a proper place in your home.

4. Garage Storage- Make your garage your main storage area. Use old dressers and other furniture to store seasonl items and items you don't use daily. Paint the furniture the same color to create a unified look.

Go through these tasks every few months to help maintain an organized home. A decluttered home can give you and your family peace of mind – and room for something new.
