Declutter your home in the new year
As we welcome the new year, you may be eager to declutter your home. But when you look at all the clutter you have gathered over the years, that desire might diminish. There seems to never be enough storage space, where do you begin! The home and the body are similar, you have to clear out excess garbage to function properly. We suggest you start with a smaller area, perhaps the desk and follow the below steps to help your desk see light again. Once you get the hang of it, the rewarding feeling can help you work towards getting through the rest of your home.
You should discard old bills, letters, credit card slips, name card, promotional leaflets, etc. if they are expired or useless. Put items that can be recycled for recycling at appropriate collection bins. For something that you do not use anymore but still in good shape, you can choose to send them to friends, donate and even resell.
In order to prevent things from being stacked randomly, you should put useful things into groups and put them back to where you got it from after using. It will help keep things tidy. The positioning of the items should be placed according to the frequency of use and personal habits. The most commonly used items are placed in the most convenient location, the less used items can be placed in more obscure locations. If you have no idea how to judge, you can use the classification to divide things into daily use / monthly use / yearly use to determine the storage location.
You may have bought a lot of storage boxes and finally sorted your things and think you’re done. But hang on! One more step! Remember to label the boxes, because as time goes by we may forget what was put in the box, and clear labels can save time on finding items.
