Spring is here at Riverhouse at 11th and with so many spending a majority of their time at home, now is the perfect time to declutter your home! Decluttering your home may seem like a daunting task but with a few tips, it will be a breeze. View our tips and get your home at our luxury apartments in Miami in top shape.
#1 Start Small
When it comes to decluttering your entire home, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. The best way to avoid becoming overwhelmed is by starting out small. Declutter that junk drawer that’s been accumulating things, or start with the clothes in your dresser. This will ease you into the decluttering of your entire home and allow you to form a plan and come up with a system that works best for you. Starting small is the best way to begin your decluttering journey.
#2 Set Rules
While decluttering, it can be difficult to set boundaries for yourself and get rid of things that you don’t use anymore. A good rule to follow is that if you haven’t used something or worn something in the last six months, it is time to get rid of it. No matter what rules you decide on, it is important to stick to them and not falter. There should be few exceptions to your rules, if any at all, that way you can actually tell a difference and get rid of things. While creating your rules, you’ll also want to make piles of things that you’re going to sell, donate, and throw away that way you will know where things are going once you decide to get rid of them.
#3 Get Rid of Things Immediately
After you’re done going through your things and sorting them into their appropriate piles, you won’t want to let them sit in your home. By letting things sit in your home, you may be more likely to go back through them and hold onto things that you intended to let go of. During these times, second-hand stores may not be open, but you can still use platforms like Facebook Marketplace to sell things, just be sure to practice safe protocols. Many Goodwill stores are still accepting donations and you can find if yours is here. By getting rid of things immediately, you will ensure that you don’t go back through things and keep the things that you don’t need.
