Decluttering is a job that should be done regularly – but of course, most of us don’t have the time to regularly re-organise our drawers, cluttered corners or over-stuffed rooms. In fact, for many of us, it’s a once-a-year type event. 

Keeping your house tidy and organised has never been an easy task, and with kids around, it’s almost impossible, so here are our top tips for helping you stay organised at home; 

  • Only keeping things that have been used in the past 2 months. Make a commitment to get rid of anything you haven’t used in the past two months. Generally speaking, if you haven’t used something in a couple of months, you’re almost surely never going to use it. 
  • Dispose or sell unused objects, or consider donating usable items to charity. 
  • Get smart with space! Take a little time to reorganise and refresh your bookshelf, pack away books that you won’t be reading anytime soon. 
  • When was the last time you organised your wardrobe? Now’s the time to declutter your overflowing shelves and put away pieces that no longer see the light of day. 
  • For items with sentimental value, consider storing them at a local storage facility like Cube Self Storage. Your items will be stored safely and securely, and you can rent for a period of time that works for you.  Use our interactive storage calculator to work out the right size unit for your needs >> https://www.cubeselfstorage.co.uk/self-storage/storage-space-calculator/  
  • ​​The war on toys! Is your house a vision of disorganised chaos? No matter how organised you are, toys will end up everywhere. We suggest having individual labelled storage bins for similar-type toys, like LEGO blocks, musical instruments or dolls for instance, it can make a world of difference when it’s time to clean-up…for both you, and the kids! 

Decluttering isn’t just about throwing items away – it’s about looking for opportunities to organise and store away everything you want to keep.
