Clutter can be extremely overwhelming. Trying to sort it can be moreso. In order to gain a foothold against the chaos, always sort your storage spaces first. These areas are crucial in helping to organize the rest of your home. Knowing that everything is neat, labeled and easily accessible can help keep your determination up and provides a great base to store necessary items hogging up the rest of your living space.
A great rule of thumb is that you haven’t used it in a year, you should probably toss it. Unless it is of sentimental or monetary value, it needs to go.
If you don’t have a dedicated space, consider converting a part of your attic, garage or guest room into a permanent storage area. You can even build an outdoor shed on your property. Remember to truly utilize the space such as elevating items or creating shelving along the walls. Creating even the smallest of spaces can help you fight clutter and lower your stress levels.
When you simply don’t have the room to create additional storage, consider renting a portable storage container. They’re perfect for seasonal items or large clutter such as that sectional your dad had in his den that you simply can’t part with.
