One of the biggest mistakes people make when decluttering and organising their homes is they don't leave enough time to complete a task, so it never gets done. Here are five simple tasks that you can tackle this weekend that won't take a lot of time but will make a big difference.
Not only in your pantry but also in your fridge and freezer, which often get overlooked. You will be amazed at how much space you can create
by doing this simple task!
Play the "Does it have a friend" game. If items don't have a corresponding part, it's time to let them go. Then be honest with yourself about how many you use and need.
Get it all out and put like items together. Move on expired good and any items you will no longer use. Rethink how to store them – I like to create categories such as "Pain relief" and "Cold and flu", and use plastic containers or baskets to store them. Don't forget to label them!
We all have one (or two) that are overstuffed and overlooked. Take all the items out, group categories together, then decide on your items. Relocate, recycle and reorganise, using containers where possible to divide items.
It's a great time to review your summer clothing now that we are coming into winter. If you didn't wear it last season, you won't wear it the next. Keep the items you love, you wore and that fit you now.
