In danger of re-cluttering? Read this…

How this works

How long will it take?

You will need to commit to 5 minutes a day for 5 days.

Can I do more?

If you want to declutter more than 5 things a day that is great, but don’t get carried away. Decluttering 5 things a day is a nice, easy, gentle way to regain control over your home.

What happens if decluttering brings up strong emotions?

Sometimes things we have around us can hold strong memories. If something you would like to de-clutter holds a memory that you’re not ready to process yet, that’s fine. It’s perfectly ok to leave it until you have the support you need to do so.

How do I start?

Step 1

Find a cardboard box, or a carrier bag that can be hung up somewhere. This is perfect for people with nosy animals or children who like unpacking boxes!

Step 2

Sign up to your local Freecycle, or Freegle, which ever is more active in your area. These are of course free and they are full of people willing to collect your unwanted stuff. Alternatively, have a charity shop in mind to donate your clutter to at the end of the week.

What will I need to do?

During the course of the week you will be filling your box or bag with things you no longer need.

The quickest way to get rid of it is to offer it as a random box of car boot bits and get a Freecycler to come and collect it.

Because this is a short introduction to easy decluttering methods it is important to get rid of things quickly, there will be time after to put things you want to sell on Ebay or whatever.

With this in mind, you will not be decluttering anything with a reasonable re-sale value in the 5 days.

Now it’s time to choose an area to work on today!
