Spring is around the corner. For our clients in Los Angeles, it is feeling like spring already. If you are in Houston or Atlanta, it won’t be much longer. With spring comes the urge to freshen up and reorganize your home. With the longer, warmer days and the desire to start fresh, now is the perfect time to tackle those home organization, decluttering, and spring-cleaning projects you’ve been putting off.
Why Declutter Your Home?
Decluttering your home has numerous benefits beyond just having a cleaner and more organized living space. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider decluttering your home this spring:
Reduces Stress - A cluttered home can lead to increased levels of stress and anxiety. By decluttering, you’re creating a calmer and more peaceful environment.
Saves Time - When you declutter your home, you’re getting rid of things you no longer need or use. This makes it easier to find what you’re looking for and saves you time in the long run.
Improves Mental Health - Studies have shown that a cluttered environment can negatively impact our mental health. Creating more peaceful spaces can help improve mood, reduce stress, and increase feelings of happiness and well-being.
Saves Money - Decluttering can actually help you save money by reducing the need to purchase duplicates of items you already own or by freeing up space for things you truly need and value.
A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Calm from Chaos
Yes, it can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get started:
Set a goal - Before you start, set a goal for what you want to accomplish. This could be a specific room, getting rid of a certain number of items, or simply creating more space in your home.
Make a plan - Create a plan for how you’ll tackle the process. This could include setting aside specific times each day or week to work on decluttering, or dividing your home into smaller, manageable sections to tackle one at a time.
Start small – Don’t try and entire home in one day- whether you do it yourself or hire a professional like Orgnze. Start with a small, manageable space and work your way up. This will help you stay motivated and not become overwhelmed by the process.
Get rid of what you don’t need- Focus on getting rid of items that no longer serve a purpose in your life. Ask yourself if you’ve used the item in the past year and if not, consider getting rid of it. We’ve partnered with LoadUp to make the process simpler.
Organize what you keep - Once you’ve decluttered, it’s time to organize what you’ve kept. Use containers, shelves, and other storage solutions to keep things organized and easy to find. Ask use for shoppin help. We get discounts at the Container Store and pass that along to our clients.
Maintain- After you’ve decluttered and organized your home, make a plan for maintaining the clean and organized state. This could include regularly going through your belongings and getting rid of anything that’s no longer needed or used. We provide an organizing maintenance plan as well. Ask us how to save money in future Orgnze sessions.
