Today experts will argue that decluttering your home until it becomes a bare minimalist space is the way to go. But what about those of us that like a little clutter–or at least our possessions we wouldn’t dare throw away? Don’t worry, here is a list of ways to declutter without tossing your stuff.
Keep Things in their Spot
The main reason why clutter builds up around the home isn’t from having too much stuff but rather because things are in the wrong spot. Simply keeping things organized can clear up a lot of clutter. Organizing items together will further help declutter your home. Keeping all mail in one area, magazines in a pile, and electronics together can go a long way.
Just when you thought there is no more space around the house, remember you have walls. Walls can be used to add additional shelving, hooks, and other organizational tools. The key point to keep in mind when using walls is that you want anything you put on them to be easy to come out.
Store in Furniture
Do you have drawers that can be used to place electronics or miscellaneous items? Look around your home, you might find places you can use for storage. Using every place possible as a storage unit will alleviate the clutter lying around the home.
Control Your Cords
The easiest way to clear up clutter from any room is to clean up the cords that randomly run through it. There are a lot of products that can help you conceal and clean up cords to free up as much space as possible.
