Spring is the season for new beginnings— to breathe new life to untouched spaces, create more room for movements, and let go of once loved possessions that no longer inspire creativity or happiness. But it is never easy to identify which items to let go of first during our spring cleaning. We know you’re thinking that too. So, we have decided to help you get started with the process of decluttering.
To make it easier, here are the top three rules you need to remember for a successful decluttering process before spring begins:
First is sorting out your things. You will probably want to keep 98 percent of your things. However, some things just have to go; so, to help you determine which ones are the first to go, you have to SORT IT OUT. You can organize this process by labeling two sides of your floor. The left side will be for things that have to go, while the right side is for things that you will be keeping.
If you are looking at a pile of clothes, start trying them on. If your pants don’t fit anymore, you might want to put that on the left side of the floor. The same goes for books. If you have not touched that copy for more than two years and is not really a favorite, you might want to consider giving it a new home. As for shoes, if those stilettos are hurting your feet when wearing them, ask yourself if the blisters are worth it. Lastly, there are mementos that we keep during travel or special occasions. While it is difficult to keep everything, leave a few that you really want to keep.
After the initial sorting out, this might be the hardest part – THROWING OUT. Commit to your goal of decluttering your space. Clutter will stay if you only move it from one corner to the other, so all things on your left pile must go. At first, it will feel like you wasted so much money, time, and effort letting your things go, but in the end, you will have gained your space back for other activities and new things.
Throwing out doesn’t have to be a guilty scene. During your sorting, identify what items can be donated to organizations. That way, your hard-earned money is not wasted and you are able to contribute to a good cause.
Now that you have the space free, the next step is to clean the area. This means you have to sweep, vacuum, and overall clean the portion of the space you just freed. Picking up dust will also save you from allergies. Vacuuming will suck all unholy elements left by critters where the clutter was stocked, and waxing will help prevent termites (if the area is dominantly wood) from ruining your space.
