How do you start decluttering? It can seem overwhelming at first to declutter because you don’t know what steps to take first. Here is a quick starter list of things you can declutter today!
1. Books. Chances are you have some books that have been sitting on your bookshelf for over a year not being used. Books collect dust and can start to look overwhelming. A decluttering tip is to go through you books and decide what books you still have use for. If you collect books perhaps decide how many books is the max you want to have in your collection.
2. Clothes that don’t fit. It’s daunting to open up your wardrobe to clothes that may or may not fit you. A good first step to decluttering your wardrobe is to get rid of all the clothes that don’t fit. Don’t keep things that may fit you in the future. The clothes that you have should fit you and flatter you right now, not at a distant time. Opening your closet to clothes that all fit you is a refreshing and wonderful feeling.
3. Old makeup and beauty products. Look through your bathroom cabinet (or wherever you keep your beauty supplies). Throw out items that haven’t been used in a long time or are past their expiration. You may be surprised at how many items you are hanging onto that you don’t actually use (when I did this I found I had over 20 lipsticks/lipglosses that I never even used!).
I am confident that once you start the decluttering process you will feel rejuvenated and inspired to clear out more!
