One of the biggest deterrents to decluttering is finding the time to do it! Here is How I Instantly Declutter My Closet With This Simple Step!
Over the past year here on The Eco Hub I have covered a lot of stories related to decluttering both my home and my closet and the biggest feedback I have gotten from you my readers is that finding the time to actually declutter is hard.
I get it takes time to go through a kitchen cupboard or a drawer in your home, it can seem like a very overwhelming task. It’s a big reason why we tend to put off decluttering altogether and end up hoarding it instead.
This got me thinking, how can we make this more doable for people?
This past summer I got to chat with Sarah Peel from Citizenne, she came to my house to teach me how to shop my closet; you can watch the video here.
We had a few boxes on the bed to help us sort out what I was going to keep and what I was going to donate.
After she left, I kept a small basket at the bottom of my closet for clothes I was not wearing or just did not want anymore, but were just hanging in my closet.
After a few months, the box was filled with clothing that was ready to be donated.
This simple practice has eliminated the hours I would need to put aside to do full closet purge.
If you have kids this is a great way to get rid of clothes that don’t fit them anymore. If they try it on and it does not fit, it goes in the box. After a few months you will have a full box ready for donation.
You can do this in any room on the house, not just the bedroom/closet. If you come across something in your home that you know you don’t want, simply place I in the box, when it’s full, its ready to go!
What do you think? It this something you would consider doing?
