If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the clutter in your home, you’re not alone. Many people struggle to get rid of excess stuff that takes up valuable space and adds unnecessary stress to their lives. 

Fortunately, there are steps you can take to clear out the clutter and reclaim your home. And with handy skip hire options in Norwich, AKS can help you reinvent your space with minimal fuss. Read on for our top tips on having a clear-out.

Start with a plan

Before you begin the process of clearing clutter, it’s important to have a plan. Take some time to assess your home and identify the areas that need the most attention. 

You may want to focus on one room at a time or tackle several areas simultaneously, depending on your schedule and energy levels. Whatever your approach, make sure you have a clear idea of what you want to accomplish and how you plan to do it.

It’s important to remember that decluttering is an incredibly personal experience, and you shouldn’t feel pressured to discard your clutter too soon, take your time and perhaps get a family member or friend to assist you in your cleaning. 

Organise your clutter

Once you have a plan in place, it’s time to start sorting through your stuff. This can be a daunting task, but it’s essential to the process of clearing clutter. Begin by separating your possessions into categories, such as “keep,” “donate,” “sell,” and “throw away.” 

Try to be practical in your decision-making, and don’t hold onto items that you no longer need or use. When it comes to throwing your clutter away, it’s important to make sure that you dispose of it correctly — especially electronic waste. At AKS Skip Hire, we make sure that all of your unwanted items are sorted and disposed of safely, in the most sustainable manner possible.

Donate and sell

Next, it’s time to sort through your possessions and donate or sell the items you no longer need. Consider donating items that are still in good condition to a local charity shop. You can also sell items online through websites like eBay or Facebook Marketplace. 

Not only will this help clear clutter from your home, but it will also give your unwanted items a new lease of life. Whilst you may have had enough of a particular item, if your unwanted item still functions properly, it’s always best to give your clutter away rather than to bin or recycle it. Spark some joy with your unwanted items in an environmentally friendly way.

Any remaining items will likely be those you want to throw away — here’s where hiring a skip can be helpful. You can place your waste outside, rather than having it take up space in your home.

Organise your space

With your items sorted into “donate” and “sell” piles or in the skip, you can turn your attention to the “keep pile”. Take some time to think about where you want these items to go rather than just placing them anywhere. How do you want your home to look and function? Storage solutions, such as shelving and baskets can be a great way to stay organised. 

By organising your space, you’ll be able to enjoy your newly decluttered home and maintain a more peaceful and functional living environment.
