If you're anything like me, you find it hard to give things away — literally anything. There's a term others have created for people like us: hoarders.
When you all you do is collect, you tend to hoard. And with hoarding, comes clutter. Sometimes you won't even realize you've surrounded yourself in clutter until it's too late.
But don't worry, even the most crowded of households can be decluttered if done so correctly. If you're looking to declutter some parts of your household, take a look at some of the tips we've listed below.
#1. Reduce your library to the important books.
Maybe you’re a book lover and started a book collection that slowly got out of hand. Be selective with your books. Don’t keep every single one you’ve ever read, only keep the ones that actually have impacted your life.
#2. Show off your pots and pans.
Cabinet space can easily be taken over by big pots and pans. Instead of wasting valuable cabinet space with them, hang them instead on a pegboard or a suspended pot rack.
#3. Get rid of the bottles surrounding your bathtub/shower.
Is there a big jumble of different shampoos, conditioners, and body washes on the edge of your tub? Get rid of the clutter by replacing the bottles with spa-style dispensers.
#4. Hide all your remote controls.
If you have multiple remote controls, group them together and store them in one spot. A lidded box or chic decorative bowl would work best for this situation.
#5. Keep your keys in one spot and one spot only.
Are you in a frantic frenzy most mornings trying to figure out where your keys are? Save yourself the trouble and keep all your keys in a front and center bowl that will always be in the location it is set at.
