It can be a daunting task to declutter your entire home can be a daunting task, whether you are trying to downsize or simplify your life. It is best to declutter in stages. Focus on one area, one space or one zone of a room before moving onto the next. You will feel more confident as you see success in each step.
To declutter your home you don’t need any fancy tools. However, five bins or baskets are required for the following five purposes:
You can throw away items that have escaped their storage areas. This could be a coffee cup in your bathroom or a sweatshirt for the kitchen. These items can be returned in the designated places.
Recycle: This bin can be used to recycle paper, plastic or glass.
This container can be used to fix/mend items, such as shoes you don’t love but need to be cleaned.
Trash: You can designate one basket to hold items that you don’t want, and those that can be thrown away immediately.
Donate: You can designate one bin to hold items you wish to donate to a charity or another person. These items should be things you can see another person needing or wanting.
This task can be accomplished with bins, baskets or just cardboard boxes. These bins can be taken into every room or left in a central location in your home to help you organize. It is important to not go looking for containers as you declutter. Instead, set up your bins before you start.
These are some of the best ways to declutter your home using these five bins.
