Decluttering is a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. With the help of these simple steps and a few trips to your local recycling center, you’ll be able to declutter your home in no time.

Declutter your home

Before you start decluttering your home, it’s important to have a plan in place. The first step is to determine what items are truly valuable or useful and which ones are unnecessary clutter. For example, if you have extra kitchen utensils lying around that don’t get used on a regular basis, those should be donated or given away.

The second step is figuring out how much space you need for each item so that there aren’t any unnecessary stacks of stuff cluttering up the house (or worse yet–causing an avalanche!). You may even want to make use of Bins Adelaide services when deciding what goes where so that everything has its own designated spot instead being thrown into one big pile somewhere else in the house because there wasn’t enough room elsewhere!

Start with the small stuff

When you start decluttering, it’s best to start small. This will help you get the hang of it and make the process feel less daunting.

You should begin by getting rid of things that are broken or no longer useful (e.g., old toys). Then move on to items that are in the wrong place (e.g., clothes in your kitchen cupboards) or not useful (e.g., books for college courses you took ten years ago). Finally, consider whether sentimental value outweighs practicality; if so, donate those items instead!

Sort the items you want to keep

Sort the items you want to keep into different piles. The first step is sorting your belongings into three categories: Keep, Donate and Recycle.

It’s a good idea to make sure that all of your bins are out and ready before starting this process so that you can easily dump each pile into its respective bin when you’re done sorting through it. If there are any items that are hard for you to decide about or if there’s just something about them that makes it difficult for you to let go, set those aside for now–you don’t have to deal with them until later on in the decluttering process!

Sort the items to donate or recycle

  • Donate your items. If you are unsure about whether or not an item can be donated, ask a professional. This will help ensure that the donation goes to a good place and doesn’t end up in the landfill.
  • Recycle what cannot be donated. In some cases, recycling is better than donating because it keeps materials out of landfills and reduces environmental impact on our planet’s resources and climate change–but only if done properly! For example: if you want to recycle old electronics but aren’t sure which ones need special handling (like batteries), check with us first so we can make sure they don’t accidentally end up in landfills by mistake!
