How to Declutter Your House in 1 Month

By
Home Builder with Women of Westchester Working Together

Set aside just one month, and you’ll feel a ton of weight lifted from your shoulders … and closets. 

It’s not hard, I promise. 

Stick around and we’ll tackle this together.

Excess stuff is actually really hard on us emotionally. Clutter causes stress whenever we can’t find important things we’re looking for. It’s a huge time waster.

If you work at home like I do, clutter is also super distracting and disheartening. As I move around my house, the extra stuff keeps calling out — “do something with me!” It feels awful.

We had a major declutter win in our garage this weekend, and it’s spurred us to keep going in the right direction. A giant entertainment center armoire finally found its new home!

 

We’ll divide our 30 days into four weekly chunks. You can start fresh at the start of a month, or better yet, get started today! Each weekday has a 20-minute purging session, and weekends are used to get rid of stuff.

You’ll be moving through your house in sections. The first week has five easy20-minute decluttering sessions. We need to see those quick wins to stay motivated for the big stuff!

  • A large garbage bag
  • A medium box or laundry basket
  • Cleaning gloves if you’d like
  • Good music or a podcast you’ve wanted to hear

 

The final few weeks are for deeper decluttering. Each weekday you’ll tackle a certain area of the house. Since basic decluttering is done the first week, you should be able to get quite a bit accomplished in 20 minutes a day.

Weekends are for getting the clutter off the premises.

Decluttering your home, and creating a lovely space, begins with peace and order on the inside. Simplify and streamline your daily schedule for a healthier life balance and cut the chaos for good. All you need is a solid plan.

Hello Debbie,  I should pass this on to a couple of friends of mine.  They need lots of help.

Sound wonderful, but I think I would need 8 hr. per day for that month. I already had plenty of "stuff," and then I inherited more.

Getting rid of things that meant something to my Mom is difficult, to say the least. So while I did donate 4 pickup truck loads, I'm still left with a very full house.
