Each new year inspires resolutions big and small. Whether they’re to spend more time with family, to shed a few pounds, or to save more money, we’re inclined to set new goals. Here are a few solutions to help declutter your home.
Gut the Garage
The garage is a catchall place that might benefit from a good purge. Boxes of unwanted tchotchkes, bikes that the kids have outgrown, materials from abandoned do-it-yourself projects, and disorganized tools can all contribute to a chaotic environment. Off-load your knick-knacks and unused bikes with a yard sell. Perhaps revisit that forgotten DIY project. Organize your tools to create a more functional environment. After a good cleanse, your two-car garage just might hold two vehicles.
Junk the Junk Drawer
You know that drawer. The one in the kitchen that’s so crammed with stuff it’ll barely close. It’s jam-packed with opened and unopened mail, flyers, holiday and birthday cards, and anything else that’ll fit. This year make your best effort to tackle that catchall drawer and keep it organized by sorting through items as you receive them instead of tucking them away to be sorted at a later date.
Clear Closet Clutter
You’ve tried to convince yourself that you’ll wear them again, but you can’t remember the last time you’ve donned clothes from that pile of folded shirts, pants, or skirts, or from the hanging outfits squeezed into your closet. Well, if you don’t think you have a need for those clothes, give them to someone who might. It’s always a great time to donate to your local Goodwill, Salvation Army, or Thrift Store. But don’t stop at your closet. Find unneeded or seldom-used items from around the house and donate them to others who can put them to good use.
