De-cluttering Tips

When it comes to giving your home a much-needed clearout, whether you’re thinking of making a few home improvements, or simply want to create to some handy extra space, sometimes it can be a real challenge to get rid of all that clutter that has built up over the years. So here we give a quick guide to some top tips for de-cluttering your home to get you started.

Be Ruthless

We can all admit to getting a little sentimental when it comes to organising and de-cluttering our homes, and it can be tempting to hang on to things sometimes, even though we know we don’t need them. However, often the key to success when it comes to getting the clutter in your home under control is to be ruthless when deciding what can stay and what can go. So stop with the excuses and make sure you ask yourself, do you really need those items?


When it comes to the old clothes you no longer wear, the best option for these is to recycle them. Be harsh with yourself; if you haven’t worn them in a while, chances are you won’t again! Why not try taking them to a local charity shop so that someone else can benefit from them. Handily, many charity shops will also accept other items such as DVDs and books too, so you could also consider sending some of these as well to free up some extra room.

Pick a Room and Stick With It

Having a clear out and de-cluttering your home can be a surprisingly big project, so it’s best to divide things up and stick with one room at a time to make things easier. Indeed going back and forth between two rooms can make the task ahead of you bigger and more difficult to complete, so make sure you concentrate on one room at a time and stick with it till you’re done.

Hire a Skip
