Spring cleaning is a great way to help you get rid of unnecessary items sitting in your home for years. It also means organizing all the new things on your shelves or drawers. These reasons would be good enough, but one must not forget the mental health boost that comes from a decluttered home.

For spring cleaning to work, you need to know how to declutter. Here is how to declutter during spring cleaning.

Start with Intention

Before you declutter, ensure you have a purpose behind it. Also, do not do the cleaning for the sake of it. It is essential to be intentional when cleaning your home. For instance, you may declutter your home because you need it to be clean and organized. Decluttering should not just be a routine to you, but it must be something that you enjoy doing.

Declutter in Smaller Steps

It is best to start with the smallest things in your home and work your way up. This will help you keep track of how much stuff is out there and if there are things that are genuinely unnecessary or not valuable enough to keep around. It also helps you figure out where your clutter can live after the spring season.

Recognize the Energy Your Objects Hold

Ensure you pay attention to your objects’ emotional value when decluttering. For instance, when decluttering, do not get rid of something because it is old or has sentimental value. Instead, look at the energy of your items and determine whether they will bring positive energy into your home.

Keeping Items Out of Site Does Not Mean You Forgotten Them

When decluttering, try to find places to store items that will be out of sight. This is not to say that you have forgotten about these items. It keeps the clutter from being too noticeable to the other family members or guests. For instance, you may put things in the attic, garage, or basement. However, do not forget that these items are stored in those areas.

In conclusion, decluttering should be a part of your spring-cleaning routine. This will help you get rid of unnecessary items and keep you from accumulating more clutter. You should apply the above steps when decluttering your home during spring. Your home will remain organized and clean.
