Ways to Simplify Your Life: Decluttering

This is a contributed post and may contain affiliate links

Trying to declutter your home and life can seem like a daunting task. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the stuff you have accumulated over time, but there are things that you can do to simplify your lives. If you have a full life, it might be challenging to figure out where to start your decluttering process. Perhaps you should consider an area that has been a particular focus of yours lately: the kitchen. Most people spend time in this room throughout their day, and there are many ways to simplify here. 

Decluttering Cabinets

First off, how can you organise your cabinets? Many kitchens contain deep drawers or cupboards below counters as well as shelves above them which may include hanging pots and pans. It would definitely help if there were clear containers made specifically for these spaces. Still, even plastic bins from other rooms could work depending upon your needs and what will fit. These bins should be clearly labelled so that you can easily find what you’re looking for and discard the items which no longer have a place to go. You can even take it a step further and exchange your cabinet doors with glass panels for a more organised feel and to know where items are in the kitchen. A quick call to your local glaziers will provide you with a quote, and you can easily budget for it.

Decluttering Countertops 

Second, how about organising your countertops? This includes easy access to frequently used items as well as the space behind these items where you might store appliances or other kitchen equipment. Clear containers again make sense here since they will show off whatever is inside them while preventing clutter from accumulating on your counters (or in drawers). They come in many different shapes and sizes, so there’s sure to be one suited perfectly for your needs. Remember also that things like paper plates, plastic cups and disposable utensils take up very little space when properly stored yet provide excellent benefits such as saving time during clean up or minimising the number of dishes that need to be washed.

Call In Professional 

If your kitchen is in serious disarray, you might want to consider hiring a professional organiser. This will help ensure success and give you peace of mind. You can also take advantage of various organisations that offer free classes on organising and inexpensive workshops where they provide helpful products for sale at a reduced cost. These are great ways to gain access to these tools without having them clutter up your home. 

Finally, remember that it’s never too late to simplify your life by decluttering areas throughout your house. This includes cabinets, counters and drawers within rooms such as the kitchen, where time is spent every day. Don’t forget that your home is meant to serve you, not the other way around.

Once you start to declutter your life, you will find that there is often a lot of work involved. You might not think that it’s worth the effort but remember, this isn’t just about throwing away old books and clothes. This is about reducing stress in your daily life by getting rid of things that seem important at first glance but actually aren’t and freeing up space for new opportunities and experiences.
