Regardless of the size of your property, it is very easy to make it look messy if you keep a lot of unnecessary stuff. There is always an excuse to hold a garment or a souvenir just because it was a gift, but if you do not do anything about that, soon your house will look very chaotic. There is no doubt clutter makes the house dirtier as the dust goes everywhere and you need to put more efforts to maintain your home clean and healthy. There is a way to forget about these excuses and transform your house into a lovely place to live.
It is very common to keep clothes which are bigger size than the size you currently wear hoping you will gain some weight and you will be able to wear the same garments again. This excuse from one side does not stimulate you enough to keep yourself in a good shape and from another side they make your wardrobe to look messy. One solution is to keep the garments which you can’t wear at the moment separately, although they will take a significant part of your storage space and wiser will be to donate these clothes and enjoy your new healthy weight.
The opposite is also true. In some cases when we put some weight, the garments we have do not fit us any more, but we keep them in our wardrobes with the hope we will soon lose weight and they will fit again. Keeping them in your wardrobe might be not a good idea unless they will motivate you to lose weight quicker.
We all receive gifts for different occasions, some of them are unwanted, but we have the habit to keep them just because it was a gift from a friend. If you have items which you do not use, the best is to give them to charity rather than keeping them at home. If you have the option to exchange and return the gift and get something you will need instead will be the best option.
If you have a garment in your wardrobe for which you remember you paid a lot of money few years ago, but you do not wear it, it isn’t worth keeping it in your wardrobe. It only fills your wardrobe and trying to sell it will free up some space. Bear in mind that you will not be able to sell it for the original price you paid for it, but you may still get some money from it.
In some houses, there are piles of newspapers and magazines which have been read already, but are kept because they contain some useful information. They absorb too much dust and cleaning them each week along with your regular house cleaning chores will waste you more time. Recycling or donating them will reduce the clutter at your house and will save you time and efforts.
These tips will help you de-clutter your house and organise your belongings in a more tidy way.
