The cold breeze of the holiday season is settling in. This means so many things ā€“ parties, family gatherings, Christmas plays, celebrations, and a whole lot more! There are so many things one can do in the holiday season. That is why you do not want to spend it clean up in your home. Make sure you declutter before the holidays. Check out the following tips:

Cleaning up

Any obvious garbage lying around your home should definitely be eliminated. Allot one big general cleaning day during the first or second week of December. Make sure you make your home spotless clean so that you would not have to worry about a dirty home come Christmas time.

Getting rid of old stuff

Check your wardrobe because there is a huge chance that you have clothes that you are not using anymore. Old clothes can always be turned to rags. But if they are still in good condition, you can always consider donating them to charity. There will definitely be some people who can benefit from them.

Furniture pieces take up a lot of space in your room. Thus, you have to get rid of furniture that can be considered as useless. Better yet, have old ones replaced with more functional replacements. What to do with your old furniture pieces? Well, you can always sell them or you could even put them in disposal bins in case dumpster divers can benefit from them.

Promoting organization

To declutter, one should always seek for better organization. You have to keep similar items together in shelves, drawers, or cabinets. Moving boxes, plastic containers, and other possible storage items like shoeboxes and tin cans can help you have a better and more organized room. Proper organization can definitely turn any tight space into a more spacious-looking one.
