With the winter season right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to begin decluttering your home.
As the temperature begins to drop, we find ourselves spending more time indoors. However, your home may still be filled with summer gear, taking away from the relaxing and cozy environment you want to achieve during the cooler months.
Coming home to a clean and fresh home and basking in the warmth after a long day can greatly improve your mood and reduce stress.
In fact, it has been proven that too much clutter can cause high levels of stress and depression. Having a clean, and clutter-free space boosts productivity, helps you sleep better, and improves relationships.
Similar to spring cleaning, a deep fall cleaning includes putting away summer clothes and gear, rather than bringing them out.
Finding Efficient Storage Space
Summer is the season for camping, canoeing, and biking, and although these activities are great fun, the equipment takes up a lot of space in your home.
Decluttering involves more than just organizing and throwing things away. It also involves getting rid of all the things you no longer need or have use for. All these unwanted items take up a significant amount of space in your home that can be better used for something else.
Going through your entire house and collecting things you want to get rid of is an inefficient way to declutter, as you’ll be creating a bigger mess rather than cleaning up.
Renting a bin to discard things you no longer need will help you get through everything faster while avoiding creating piles of junk.
Things to Declutter Before Winter
Spring cleaning is one of the most dreaded activities when the warmer months approach, and understandably so.
However, doing a little fall/winter cleaning will make spring cleaning much easier, as a good portion of the items will have been taken care of already.
Decluttering your entire home can get overwhelming, which is why it’s best to break down the process into manageable sections. Not only will you feel less overwhelmed, but you’ll be able to focus better, resulting in better outcomes.
The first area to target is the shoe and coat closet. Start by packing away all summer footwear and replace them with winter apparel. Make sure to put only the most worn shoes in the closet, as putting too many pairs will make the space look unorganized and messy.
The garage is another area that’s likely flooded with summer gear, all of which can’t be used during the winter season. Put away items such as garden tools, sporting equipment, and outdoor games and instead, bring out winter items including snow shovels and sleds.
Finally, reorganize kitchen shelves and drawers, discarding any expired products. The same also goes for bathroom cabinets and vanities.
