Clutter; none of us like it but most of us have it. It’s hard to keep things organized and tidy in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Decluttering your life (and keeping it that way) can seem so time-consuming that it’s no wonder that it’s also a full-time job. In short, decluttering in a short amount of time is hard, so it doesn’t hurt to have some useful decluttering tips to make things easier. After all, it’s worth the effort and implementing the hacks; having a home that is clean and organized is a great way to boost your mood, promote productivity, and reduce stress.
Unlike those ‘trendy’ tricks that only work on TikTok, these decluttering hacks are brilliant and effective solutions for decluttering your home. They are a great reminder that the art of tidying up doesn’t have to be difficult nor strenuous. Sometimes, all you need are a few small changes to make a big difference in your home, and that in turn can make a big difference in your daily life.
Start With Your Bathroom
The drawers and shelves of your medicine cabinet are a great place to start your efforts to declutter your home because they are often full of stuff you can get rid of. Old toiletries, expired makeup, empty shampoo bottles, and outdated medications are all things you can throw away to greatly reduce clutter. If you have a collection of hotel soaps, consider giving these away or throwing them in the trash since you may be unlikely to use them. To keep clutter at a minimum, try to only have one of each toiletry in use at a time. This means only one lip balm, one bottle of shampoo, and one soap bar should be open at a time.
