How to declutter your homes problem areas

As the weather gets nice, most people use the spring time to get their house in order and declutter any mess. In this article we will outline how to declutter those problem areas in the most efficient way. After you organize and declutter, you can make some extra cash by selling your unwanted items to Scenfo.

  • First you want to find the area that needs your attention the most. For many families this is going to be the garage or attic.

  • Next create four separate piles to organize your items in, a “keep” pile, “donate” pile, “sell” pile and “junk” pile.

  • Start with the big stuff. This is a little tip to help make things a little less overwhelming. By starting with the large items you are able to clear a good amount of space and the job seems more manageable.

  • Make sure you clear the space entirely to work with a blank slate. It’s easier if you use your yard to hold your four piles.

  • Having trouble deciding what stays and goes? Here are some questions to ask yourself. “Have I used it in the last year? Do I like it? Do I need it? Does it add value to me?” If you answer no then it’s time to go.

  • Once finished clearing the space do a deep and thorough clean to remove all dirt and dust.

  • Finally organize and put back the things from your keep pile. If you need help with some organizing tips, take a look at our organizing article.
