10 Brilliant Hacks to Declutter Your House And Life

Silas & Grace

Good organization is invisible. A mess stares you in the face.

The concept of decluttering is huge now with Marie Kondo’s “The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up” currently topping the New York Times bestseller list. And it’s that popular for a reason.

When your house is untidy and in chaos, it makes you feel overwhelmed, stressed, and frustrated. Your environment affects how you feel, therefore, tidying up and organizing your house may change the way you experience life.

In order to keep your place nice and tidy, stop holding onto things you don’t need and minimize your belongings – it will make your life way easier. And for the things you still choose to keep, organize them in a way that makes your house look neat. Take one room at a time, and aim to get it sorted in a week. This way, in a couple of weeks, your place will be unrecognizable.

I’ve gathered ten of the best decluttering hacks to get you started.

Apply One In, One Out Philosophy

If you’ve ever tried to declutter, you’ve probably noticed how we tend to accumulate a lot of stuff over time. Instead of gathering a bunch of clothes, shoes, magazines, appliances, and other random things, simply adopt the “One in – one out” philosophy, which means that before buying anything new, you need to get rid of something old in order to make space for a new thing. It will not only keep your house tidier but will also minimize your consumption and save money.
