Here’s how you can Marie Kondo your house fast.
Don’t Overthink and Pick a Room
Don’t plan too much, just pick a room to toss out junk from and get to work. One factor that tires most people out when it comes to decluttering the house is excessive planning. You don’t need to strategize decluttering too much because it is only going to overwhelm you by making you feel that there is a lot to do. Therefore, start clearing things, and soon you’ll be clutter-free.
Toss the Trash
Out of all the boxes that you arrange for decluttering, mark two or three of them ‘for trash.’ Doing so will be a lot easier for you; you will not have to carry bins to every room. And once you are done, you can sort out the trash.
As you start tidying up the rooms in your house, toss the things you don’t need in one box and the ones you need in another box. By categorizing items, you will save a lot of time and energy. And you won’t have to sort everything right away. You can do that after a few days if you don’t want to do it on the same day.
Rid your Kitchen off Non-Kitchen Items
The kitchen generally becomes the room for hoarding, and everything that doesn’t have a defined place ends up there. So, before you begin clearing out the cabinets and drawers, move all the non-kitchen items out of your kitchen. Just dump everything non-kitchen in boxes and move it out.
If you have time and energy, sort the stuff out right away or stash it away for the time being. By separating decluttering and sorting, you will not only save time and energy but also feel less burdened.
Don’t be in Two Minds
The task that takes away the most time during decluttering is deciding what is useful and what is not. People more often than not end up double-minded over the future of items in their home. They struggle to decide whether or not they will need a particular good in the future or not. The never-ending battle between ‘will I, Won’t I’ eats up a lot of time and exhausts a person to a great degree. Therefore, try to be as focused as possible. Look at an item and pick the first option that pops into your head, and then don’t go over it again.
And if you still feel a little too less than thrilled about decluttering your home yourself, then hire a professional company, and they’ll do it for you.
