How to Keep Clutter from Coming Back

After it seems like you have finally gotten rid of all of your clutter, it somehow always finds a way to come back. Fight clutter with these organization tips!

Make it a Routine

Instead of letting things pile up, get rid of them immediately before it turns into a problem. Taking one minute of your day to freshen up your kitchen or bedroom before you head off to work is very doable.

Know the Usefulness of Your Items

You can also get in the habit of getting rid of anything in your home that you know you don’t use immediately. If you come across am item that you have been holding onto that is slightly broken or never gets used and won’t be used, be honest with yourself and throw it away.

Have a Place for Everything

If everything has a place where it belongs, nothing will get lost or get placed in something else’s space. Clutter can quickly form when you don’t have a designated spot for something. Then the next time you see something laying around, it will only take a second to put it right where it belongs.

Be Timely

When you get out a bag of donations or trash, don’t let it sit around for a week. The moment you bag it up, get it out of your home! This also applies for laundry; once you do it, take your basket to your room and put your clothes away immediately. This simple method will help force yourself not to let your belongings consume unnecessary space, thus making your home cleaner.

Major Cleanups

Every season schedule a cleanup for your home. This should involve cleaning out all your rooms, as well as getting rid of anything that has piled up and is not being used. Put those dates on the calendar, so you save time for them. It’s a lot easier to follow through when you have scheduled the time to do it.
