10 Useful Tips That Will Make Decluttering The Entire House Easier


Are you sick of having clutter everywhere in your home? Are you scared that a guest will show up unannounced, giving you no time to tidy up?

It’s time to get down to business and declutter!

Decluttering the entire house sounds like a daunting task. I totally understand, but it doesn’t have to be! Tackle one area at a time and trust me you will finish! It’s not going to be easy but it’s definitely doable!

I know it can be overwhelming and not knowing where to start. But lets go over some reasons why you should take on this task, starting today!

Benefits of a clutter-free home

  • Less time spent looking for things
  • More energy to focus on what really matters to you
  • Less time and energy spent on cleaning and repairing things you own
  • Makes more room for activities you love
  • Helps you clearing your mind and finding a sense of clarity in life

Some reasons why your homes might be cluttered 

  • You buy things you already own because you’re not sure where the old item is
  • You buy things because you are bored
  • You get too ambitious on taking on different projects
  • You have a tendency to not finish a task before moving on to the next

Take it slow, little by little

Decluttering the entire house is a marathon. Take it one thing at a time and one area at a time. Trying to rush through the process will only give you more anxiety and lead to giving up early.

Every item you put away and every item you get rid of is process. Focus on one thing at a time and you will get it done. Trust me!

Visualize your goal

What do you want your space to look like after decluttering? Do you want more room to breath? More space for family activities?

It’s helpful to keep your goal on your mind while decluttering. This will help to motivate you when you feel like giving up.

Pick a day

Dedicate an entire day to be the big decluttering day. Make sure you clear out your schedule. Write the date in the calendar and ask your family to help or spend the day outside the house.

Grab a basket and start putting things away

If you are feeling overwhelmed, here is what really helped me getting started. Grab an empty basket and start clearing things off your desk, table, counters, and shelves. Don’t overthink it, just grab things and put them in. You can have separate baskets for different areas of your home.

You will notice your home instantly feels more spacious and tidy. Once I started seeing surface space being freed up while putting things in the boxes, it motivated me to keep going.

When you are done, you can look through the basket, and go through each thing one at a time. Have a donate pile, trash pile, and keep pile. You can also have a maybe pile for items that you’re not sure if you want to keep.

While you are going around the house, you might want to have a trash bag handy to collect all the trash you find.

Create a space for everything,

Put all the dirty dishes away in the kitchen sink.

Set a timer

Do you get easily distracted? Set a timer and dedicate the time frame to a specific area. Before the timer goes off, do not get distracted. Give it all of your attention.

When you use a timer, you know exactly how much time you have to work on a specific task.

Without setting a time limit, we often get the feeling that we have all day to complete something, ending up procrastinating and putting things off until later.

Set the timer to 15 minutes and start decluttering one area of your home before moving on to the next. This will help you focus on one area at a time and make it seem less overwhelming.

Ask questions

When you’re going through the items, ask yourself these following questions to help you decide if you should keep or get rid of them.

  • When was the last time I used this?
  • Can I easily and cheaply replace this?
  • Does this item add any values to my life?

Go paperless

If you are someone that tends to have piles of random papers around your home, you need to tackle that before your home can truly feel like its in order.

Check out 13 Ways to Organize and Get Rid of Paper Clutter Forever

Create a designated donation box

Have a designated box that holds everything that you would like to donate. Keep it in the closet or the trunk in your car.

Once the box is full, take it to the local charity shop to drop it off.

One in one out rule

For every new item you purchase, you should get rid of another item you already own. It doesn’t necessarily have to be something the new item replaces. It could be anything.

This rule applies to kids as well, if they want to get a new toy then they must pick an old toy to be donated.

Keep this rule up then it will help to stop increasing the amount of stuff in your home.

Clean everyday before you go to sleep

Establish a habit that you clean after yourself. When you finish one task, spend an extra minute to clean up and put everything back to where they belong.

Spend 5 minute each night before sleeping to pick up any items left behind. Wipe down any surfaces that might be dirty.

Once you get into the habit of cleaning up after yourself and picking up remaining items each night, it will come second nature to you and makes keeping your home clutter-free so much easier.

So start today, even if you aren’t feeling like it. Start with setting a 5 minute timer, start with a small corner of your living room. Every little thing you do will help you get closer to your goal!

Decluttering is practicing letting go. After decluttering the entire home, it will not only create a more comfortable place but it will also train your mind to let go of things that you no longer need. This includes things that aren’t materialistic, such as relationships, desires, values, etc.

You can do this! Leave a comment if you have any other useful tips on decluttering the entire home? What are some of your experiences with decluttering? Has any of these tips helped you? I would love to hear from you!

8. Designate a space for all paper 


Image and idea found at The Turquoise Home

Organize your office space so you have a designated area for everything, including papers. This is where you can place your paper inbox so all incoming papers have a place to sit before you sort through them.

11 Ideas for Bullet Journal Habit Trackers That Will Help You Stay Motivated

These habit tracker ideas will help me stay motivated in my bullet journal! #bulletjournal #bujo #habittracker

The purpose of having a habit tracker in your bullet journal is to keep you motivated. We often set goals with big intentions but never seem to keep up.

Instead of focusing achieving bigger goals right away, it’s more manageable if we try to establish daily habits that help us get closer to those goals.

For example, if you want to read 20 books a year, you can set a more manageable goal such as read 50 pages a day. Use the habit tracker to keep track. You can keep track of anything from exercises, meditation, journaling, no junk food, to any other habits that you would like to implement or change.

So how exactly do you incorporate habit trackers into your journal? There are a ton of different ways to do this.

Here are 9 ideas for habit trackers for bullet journal that you can copy to get you started. 

Want some ideas other than habit trackers for your bullet journal?
Check out 21 Creative Bullet Journal Ideas You Will Want To Steal

1. Monochromatic colors with icons 


via jashiicorrin

This habit tracker makes it so easy to glance at it and know exactly how well you’re doing. Using a bold color like yellow will really make the boxes pop.

Drawing a little icon on the top instead of writing the habits out in words makes it more fun to look at. For example, if you are tracking your exercises, you can draw a little dumbbell. If you are tracking reading, you can draw a book. You get the idea!

2. Circle tracker

The circle is split into two halves. Each half tracks a set of different habits. It’s simple but I love the added details of how she fills in the boxes.

Get creative with it! Try drawing lines and shapes like she does in the boxes to give your circle habit tracker a whole new look.

3. Tracking by highlighting the dates


via nataliebujo

Grab a few markers or highlighters that are different colors. You highlight the number of the dates when you practiced the habit. The end result will be a rainbow of colors, which always makes it fun to look at once it’s completed.

4. Square


via jolpentine

Each day you use a different color to track the habits the end result should be a beautiful square filled with different colors!

5. Fill in the bubbles


via aselj_in_wonderlab

Who says you have to have square boxces? You can draw circles instead! Simply fill in the bubbles with a marker as you accomplish your goals.

6. Simple boxes with faces


via purvigadewar

I love how clean and simple this habit tracker looks. I also really like the idea of using smiley faces to keep track of your habits: sad, neutral, and happy faces.

7. Individual calendar for each habit


via su.haz.doodles

Most habit trackers combine all the habits into one but you can also separate them into their own trackers. The doodle on each of the trackers is a nice touch.

8. Vertical Tracker


via journautical

Most habit trackers I see are horizontal but it doesn’t mean you cant make a verticle tracker. You fill in the circles and make them bigger as you keep track.

9. Fill in the drawing as you go


via the_botanical_bullet

Genius! That’s all I can think of when I first saw this.

What is it exactly? First, you draw a picture on the habit tracker with a pencil. As the month goes by, you trace over with an ink pen to track the habits that you have completed.

By the end of the month, the habits that are not completed should be white blank squares in the drawing.

10. Individual trackers with pastel colors


via littleolivebujo

This habit tracker is perfect for the spring!

Another style of those individual trackers but this one is filled with light and pastel colors. They go perfectly with the floral theme.

11. Coloring in the drawings


via juergen_sackratte

Color in the flowers as you go along with tracking habits. It’s a creative approach to change it up from the boxes and circles.

Place the sheet inside your vacuum bag where it attaches to the vacuum. You can use an used dryer sheet so you don’t have to waste a new one. So next time remember to save it when you take it out of the dryer!
