How to Declutter your kitchen in one day? ⠀⠀
Now that you spend more time at home... Do you find yourself looking around and feel totally overwhelmed by the clutter surrounding you? Are you guilty of stashing said clutter away, promising yourself you'll tackle it another day?
Knowing where to start can be the hardest part of decluttering and organising your home. So, we called on four professional organisers to share their top tips for getting sorted in a matter of hours, not weeks (or months!).
Have an exit strategy: know how you're going to move stuff out of the house, and where it's going. Set up a box or basket for each destination to streamline the end process.
Allow yourself a moment to sit in the middle of each room and visualise the finished look.
Take stock of available storage – how you can best use what you already have and whether you need extra.
Have one "maybe" box for items you're torn over – a single tub to sort later is better than hours of indecision.
You won't finish every room, but these are things our experts say make the biggest difference in a short time.
Start with cupboards and drawers. You don't need that chipped crockery. No. You don't.
Apply the six-month rule to gadgets and tools: have you used it in the last six months? Will you use it in the next six?
Clear the benches, apply the same six-month rule and either store items immediately, or discard.
To tackle the "plastics" drawer – breathe – and slot them all into each other. Try using a saucepan lid organiser (Ikea has one) to keep lids stacked. This also works for chopping boards and breadboards.
Random tea towel problem? Add hooks to the side of a cupboard.
In the pantry, check use-by dates, wipe shelves, use containers or trays to group like items, restock containers and arrange them and cans so labels face forward – if you can't see it, it won't get used.
Create a dedicated zone, board or file for bills, school notes and other bits of paper. You'll need it!
