Declutter Your Way Into Spring

Posted in 'Clutter' on October 24, 2014

With Spring well underway it's a good time of year to start decluttering and organising areas of your home for the warmer months. If you're a little stuck as to where to begin, here are four simple ideas to get you started in the decluttering process: 

If you don't use it, lose it 

If you have clothes that you haven't worn in the past 6 months (weather dependant) start culling. Give your wardrobe an overhaul and find the things that you haven't worn in eons and truck them off to the op shop. 

Replace, don't increase

Purchasing new items of furniture are a great way of freshening up a room however consider using the new item as a 'replacement' rather than a pure 'addition' to your room. This will help reduce clutter in that room and prevent over-furnishing.  

Start Small

If the thought of decluttering makes you immediately break into a nervous rash, start with the smallest (or easiest) room in the house and go from there. Bathrooms are always a great place to start. Sometimes surmounting even the tiniest area of your house is enough to get the 'organisation inertia' going. Alternatively if it's all too much, might be time to call in the heavies (aka Kay) to get your decluttering sorted. 

Start Now

'Never put off tomorrow what can be done today' - rings more true  than ever when it comes to decluttering. If you're feeling the urge to declutter, the best time to start is now because tomorrow never comes.

I cannot overstate the value of having you as my Lifestyle Manager. When I moved overseas with less than one week notice, I never thought I would find someone I could trust to manage my tax, investment properties, and mail and be the first point of contact for any business back in Australia to the same level I would. Your professionalism, good judgement and very efficient approach have saved me time, money and sanity. I am grateful for your hard work and I would be pleased to recommend your services to anyone in the future.
