Why You Should Declutter Your Home Fast

Mickey | Home Improvement | Sunday, February 27th, 2011

There are many ways to declutter and organize your home. But, many of them fail simply because the homeowner loses their motivation. If you take too long to get your home organized, you just don’t see results fast enough and people tend to forget why they were doing it in the first place. Other seemingly more important things will come up and the time just isn’t there to do it.

That is why you need to learn to declutter your home fast. By doing it quickly, you give yourself the chance to see real progress. Although, there is still a commitment involved, it becomes a self motivating commitment and you will tend to keep moving along towards your goal.

So, what are the steps involved? It’s easy! Get yourself a stopwatch, or if you have an extra alarm clock that will work too. Round up all of your cleaning supplies. Get some empty cardboard boxes (three or four of them). And, select an area that you want to begin in.

The trick to selecting the appropriate area is that you want to pick an area that you think you can get cleared within thirty minutes. We are going to limit our time to one half hour because it helps us keep from getting burned out. So, that area might be a closet, or some shelves, maybe one corner of a room – it doesn’t matter, as long as it can be done in your allotted time frame.

Start your timer and begin sorting through everything. Separate items for donation, to sell, to throw away, and to keep (very few of these). Once your timer goes off, and if you selected your cleaning area right, you should be done with that spot.

If you have more time, move on to the next spot. Otherwise, start a new one the next day. You will see results fast!
