The Trend of Decluttering: Tips for Keeping a Clean House

You’ve seen it everywhere in your news feeds and in your queue on Netflix. Everyone is hopping on the Marie Kondo train in hopes that they too will experience the life-changing powers of a tidy home. Interior design trends come and go, but one key piece remains the same. People everywhere are trying to find ways to keep their home cleaner, more organized, and functional. There’s nothing better than coming home to a clean space to relieve stress. Whether you’re following the KonMari method exactly or trying your own process, here are a few things to consider for keeping a clean house.

Eliminating Duplicate Items

Many of us will swap out decor as it goes out of trend. For example, your shower curtain may end up in a box when you opt for a more modern version. Unless you have several bathrooms in your home, there’s no need to hold on to the extra item. An easy way to get started in decluttering is to get rid of duplicates that don’t serve an everyday purpose. Eliminating everything from old towels to unused kitchen appliances is a great start to reducing the amount of stuff in your home.

Sustainable Decluttering

Owning too many items has an ecological impact, because of your rate of consumption of plastics, clothing, and more. Especially after you’ve completed the process of tidying, the way you dispose of items can either add to your ecological footprint or be put to good use. As you’re deciding whether to sell, donate, or trash, think about more sustainable and responsible ways to reduce your stuff. Can something be upcycled? Is there a nearby shelter or organization in need of your items? Can things be recycled? Although it’s tempting to just throw away items after that have served their purpose, be sure to consider the best way to dispose of your old stuff.
