Spring Decluttering Checklist

It’s getting to be that time of year – have you gotten the spring cleaning bug yet? Any strong urges to declutter?

When the weather starts to warm up, it’s natural for us to want to move stuff OUT. Winter’s given us the time to sit with things, and reflect on what really matters. Now it’s time to purge the old and recreate space, in line with just that.

Is decluttering an overwhelming task for you? Does it seem like there’s so much stuff you don’t know where to start? (That’s also natural.)

My best advice is to start on paper. Begin by making a list. Focus first on the main level of your home. Walk around, observe, and make notes of what areas need decluttering – chunk it down as much as possible.

Where do you have too much stuff/stuff you don’t need?

 

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Entry 

  • Coats, hats & mittens in closet
  • Boot & shoe rack
  • Top of washer/dryer

Living Room

  • DVD cupboard
  • Magazine rack

 Kitchen

  • Pile of papers
  • Expired pantry items

Then once you’ve made your list of the areas you want to focus on  decluttering, write down keywords/ideas about what you want your space to look and feel like when it’s done. This’ll serve as your motivation. (This is a crucial step for your success – don’t skip this one!)

Besides just crossing items off a list, you’ll have the satisfaction of creating a space that meets your needs, in the here and now.
