10 Genius Hacks to Declutter Your Home Faster and Reclaim Your Space

Start with Small Wins

To avoid feeling overwhelmed, begin by tackling a small area that’s been bothering you, like a messy drawer or a cluttered countertop.

Embrace the One-In, One-Out Rule

Use the "one-in, one-out" method to keep things from getting cluttered. You should get rid of something every time you bring something new into your home.

Say Goodbye to Unused Items

If you haven’t used or worn something in the past 12 months, it’s time to bid it farewell.

Create Zones for Clutter-Free Living

Divide your home into functional zones, such as a serene reading nook or an efficient workspace. 

Go Digital with Paperwork

Scan important papers and records to cut down on paper clutter. Keep digital copies safe in a folder on your computer or in the cloud so they are easy to find and keep organized.

Maximize Vertical Space

Make the most of your walls by installing shelves, hooks, or hanging organizers.

Clear Countertops for a Breath of Fresh Air

Kitchen and bathroom countertops rapidly become cluttered. Keep them clean by allocating storage for regularly used goods and cleaning away clutter.

Sort by Category for a Clearer View

When decluttering larger spaces like rooms or garages, sort items by category instead of location.

Keep a designated box or bag for donation items in your home.
