Getting organized can be overwhelming but this post will help. These 105 Things To Get Rid Of For Instant Decluttering will make it easier.
If you have been following me here or on any of my channels on social media, you know that I love to organize and clean. I have been this way since having my own room growing up. Once my older sister moved out, I didn’t have to share a room with my little sister. I was beyond excited to have my own space to decorate and organize.
The decorating and organizing are still going strong in our home too. I love to decorate and redecorate but I also love to organize, clean, and purge the things we aren’t using and/or loving anymore. Not only do I love organizing our home but I also love helping other people organize their homes. In this post, I wanted to break down some of the process into bite-sized chunks because I know organizing and getting rid of things can be overwhelming for some.
A lot of this list of things to get rid of for instant decluttering will takes less than five minutes. NOT KIDDING. The hard part is making it a priority and setting aside time to get each one done.
But, once you do set that time aside and get through this list, your home will feel like a new space immediately. It will feel like you can breathe a little better in it. Trust me.
Now, let’s get to work.
There are so many benefits to having an organized home.
Some of my favorites include:
- Reduced stress
- You gain more time
- It boosts productivity and creativity
- You can relax more
- You feel proud about where you live
- The home functions better
- You are on time more
- You save money
- More energy
- It helps clear your mind
- Better sleep
- You entertain more
- You can enjoy more fun, family time
- And so many more benefits
There are so many things sitting in your home right now that you can get rid of. You can either throw it out, recycle it, donate it, or sell it. These things are taking up way too much space in your home and in return taking up your mind space, time, money, and energy. It is time to reclaim your home and get back the things you crave more of (like time, energy, money, etc.).
