Whether you are looking to sell your home in 2020 or not, it is likely you will want to start the year on the front foot at home. There is a lot to be said for cleaning and decluttering your home in January, allowing you to relax in your surroundings.
Of course, if you plan on selling your home, decluttering is a vital step. If you are unsure of how to go about the decluttering process, we have some tips for you that will get you started, and ensure you retain momentum during the decluttering process.
You know how you are likely to approach the decluttering process. Some people like to attack a project full-on, and get as much done in one sitting as possible. There are also people who work slowly, and only remain focused for a limited period.
You know what works best for you, and what helps you get the best results. If you can only focus on this sort of task for five to ten minutes at a time, then that is what you need to allocate. However, you need to make sure you do this every single day. Over time, this slow and steady approach will help you declutter.
If you don't have a lot of time to sell your home, you need to work faster or more productively. However, if you are working in advance of any prospective move, you will find you can transform your home.
One of the biggest challenges when it comes to cleaning and decluttering remaining motivated. When you have a whole house to tidy up and improve, it can seem as though the work is never-ending.
However, you can spur yourself on by detailing the level of work you are undertaking, and the impact it is having. When you notice how cleaner and more spacious your home is becoming, you will be much more motivated to carry on working.
One problem faced by homeowners looking to declutter their home is deciding what to do with their belongings. If the choice is between retaining an item or throwing it away, many people struggle to bring themselves to throw items away.
However, if you allow yourself to choose between retaining items, selling items, giving items away to charity, passing them onto others and throwing them away, it may become easier to make a decision. You can also create a collection of items which you retain for one month. If you don't use an item in that time, you should look to get rid of the item from your home.
