If you are anything like me, at this time of year, I long for warm sunshine and buds starting to appear on trees. As I cannot be outside I turn myself to jobs that keep me busy and improve my living space indoors. Decluttering is perfect as it frees up space, allows you to go through items you may have been hoarding or forgotten about for years and is very therapeutic (at least I think so). I make 3 piles - items to keep, items to donate and items to throw away (sometimes I do a cheat pile of items to store in the basement that I just can't part with but don't need right now). Make sure you are ready to clean the area thoroughly that you have just decluttered as it is the prime time to do so when empty. If afraid to tackle a full room start small. A drawer, under a bed, a closet - all great places to start. Trays, baskets and decorative boxes all are good (and tidy) ways to store items you do need and want. If this all seems too overwhelming give me a call on 905 403 1491 and I will help take the clutter out of your life. I have decluttered for a variety of reasons - children grow up and no longer need the million stuffed animals they own, moving house and don't want to take it all with you, loved one passed away and need help with their estate, we can even help declutter and stage your home when looking to sell (remember buyers look in cupboards and drawers). You will be pleasantly surprised how much extra space you have.
