De-cluttering your entire house at once may seem like a mammoth task. Hence, reduce the effort by picking out one corner or room at a time. Not only will it help you save time, it will also give you a sense of satisfaction every time you finish cleaning out. We recommend beginning with small table tops or dressing room corners to gauge how much time you take to finish one area, and accordingly proceed.

Set aside time to declutter


No, you do not need to set aside an entire day to declutter your house! Instead, eke out 10-20 minutes of your time everyday and fold all your washed laundry or tidy up your work desk. Not only will it help you take your mind off of stress, but will also ensure that your home remains clutter free.

Recycling is the way to go


If you find it difficult to throw away things that are cluttering up your house, recycling may be the option for you! Not only is it cost-effective but also prevents more waste, and is thus a sustainable option. Useful but aesthetically pleasing ways in which you can recycle common everyday household items are:

*Use empty or broken plastic containers as plant holders.

*Don’t throw away glass bottles, instead use them as flower vases, plant holders, repurposed pickle jars, repurposed milk jars etc.

*Don’t throw away organic or vegetable waste from your house, instead use them as homemade fertilisers.
