Declutter your home and find space to breathe again. Decluttering is hard, but the resources here at Small Notebook will help you cut back the clutter and have a more peaceful home.
Top 10 Rules for Decluttering
- Start with the big stuff. Remove oversized clutter like old furniture, broken appliances, and empty cardboard boxes to make the biggest impact for your space, even if you never get around to the smaller stuff.
- Recognize what is really trash. Charities spend many volunteer hours and dollars sorting out the unusable donations. Don’t donate items to charity that should be thrown away.
- Be realistic about monetary value. Avoid spending too much time trying to decide if it’s okay to declutter an item that might be worth four dollars.
- Don’t declutter your family’s stuff without their permission. No one likes to discover their stuff is missing.
