Worakble tips for Apartment Decluttering

Despite spending hours cleaning and organizing, you still find the stuff overflowing. It's time you start de-cluttering your Home.

De-cluttering is what I am doing from last few months after Minimalism struck me. I live in an apartment having 3 bedrooms, a living room and a Kitchen cum Dining Room.

Oh, I miss 3 restrooms. You will say, how does it matter? But it does.

The more area you have, more time and energy it takes to De-clutter.

Start at 1 corner to cover 1 room and then move to 2nd room.

Start collecting junk or unused things in different bags.1 for plastic waste, 1 for paper waste, 1 for electronic waste, 1 for clothes, 1 for shoes and for other miscellaneous objects.

Do not spend more than 1 hour to De-clutter an area.

Deal with the removed stuff right away! Throw, Donate, Recycle.

De-cluttering is not simply re-arranging things but removing unused things.
  •         Remove empty bottles and boxes
  •         Prefer not to use storage boxes as it will only welcome the clutter
  •         Remove expired products and medicines
  •         Remove duplicate things
  •         Remove the distractions.
  •         Remove unnecessary wall hangings.
  •         Do not keep the small thing loose.

De-cluttering is a process and not a one-time thing. Make it a weekly or fortnightly ritual.
