Declutter Your Apartment the Easy Way

Getting started is often the hardest part of decluttering. Before you do anything, make a list of:

  • Items you don’t use or seldomly use
  • Unused belongings you could sell
  • Unused items you can donate to charities

When you have a list, box things up or put them aside and label them with either “sell”, “donate” or “recycle”. Make decluttering easy by taking small steps. Sell, donate or recycle one labelled box or item every month. In just a few months your place will be clutter-free.
