A guide to cleaning up, reducing clutter and material possessions, organizing, and freeing up more open space in your home.
A lot of us live in a commerce based society and we tend to accumulate a bit of clutter. I have spent a good amount of time trying to reduce the clutter that has piles up in my life, and I am going to share with you what I did to help reduce the clutter in my life.
This guide can be useful for those who also in the process of moving and future dorm living college students.
Step 1: Materials
At least six boxes or bins, or a way to store things
Bucket, and zip lock bags (optional)
Step 2: Step 1: Set goals
I decided that I wanted to be able to stuff everything I own, minus furniture, into my car.
You can set a goal on various standards:
Quantity: Setting a numerical value to how many items you want in a particular category. An example would be, X number of pants, Y number of shirts and so on.
Spatial: This is picking a goal based on how much space you want to free up. An example of this would be like, saying you want X amount of open floor space in your living room.
Volume / Storage: This is the standard I used for my car goal. Saying I want everything I own (minus furniture) to fit into my car, or wanting everything you own to fit into your a few dressers and shelves.
I am suspecting that anyone who wants to engage in this process already has a goal in mind.
