There are many reasons why a person might decide to dispose of their possessions. Perhaps they have a next step approaching, or they are downsizing to a space with less storage space, or perhaps they are simply dreaming of a living space with a lot less stuff. In any case, they need to reduce the items around them, get rid of things they don’t need and take advantage of more efficient storage options for those items they intend to keep. As you embark on your faltering journey, you may encounter a wide range of obstacles and even more questions. For example, how should you deal with the huge number of items you have to sort through? Where can you find storage units near you? What should you do with the things you are disinfecting? Fortunately, a few special tips can guide you through the process of de-cluttering the home and beyond. 1. Find the right type for you. From Marie Kondo to The Home Edit, there’s no shortage of organizing and organizing methods to choose from, and each has legions of loyal followers who swear by their chosen strategy. However, your question shouldn’t be the most efficient way to organize or disassemble for most people. Instead, you should consider which option is right for you. Hot Mess House host Cas Aarssen uses this concept in The Clutterbug Ideology, a combination of four different organizing methods she’s seen in her clients. The same principle can be applied to backtracking. For example, if you sort your items into large groups, such as KonMari categories for clothes, books, papers, etc., or would you get better results by sorting your belongings further, such as removing tops, bottoms, dresses and other subcategories under the larger clothing umbrella ? Once you determine the most effective strategy for your unique needs and personality, the process of de-cluttering will become less stressful. 2. Find out what to do with your current property. You will need to deal with the items you keep and those you decide to dispose of after this initial cancellation. For those things you plan to keep, what are you going to do with them? Ideally, you would have delegated spaces within your home to whatever you keep. However, your space does not always match your lifestyle. For example, what if you’re embarking on an RV life and arranging your belongings to fit in that small space, but you don’t want to lose their cherished inheritance or other non-urgent items just because they aren’t in the RV with you? In these cases, a storage facility may be your best bet. Just be sure to organize your storage to make sure your items are really organized and uncluttered. 3. Finding ways to get rid of the surplus. There are other items you don’t want to keep. It’s easy to get rid of glaring trash, but other types of belongings can be more difficult. Can this box be recycled? Where can you donate these old clothes? What should you do with this whole extra pile? Spend some time researching how to get rid of those items you’ve loosened to make sure you’re doing it responsibly. Donations, trash, and even gifts can take unnecessary items out of your home or storage space to a more convenient destination. When you stare at a pile of clutter, the mere thought of cleansing and organizing can get intimidating. However, you can and will skip these items successfully. Simply take some time to think about the methods and brains that will work best for you, store your “keep” pile in an organized manner, and dispose of the excess disposed of responsibly. Then enjoy your newly discovered extra space!
