1.    Start by taking inventory. Once you know what you have, it will be easier to decide what to keep and what to let go.


2.    Only keep what you need and avoid the urge to retain old things that you don’t use anymore. However, there are a few things you'll want to keep which may include items such as family heirlooms, sentimental items, or items that are genuinely useful.



3.    Prepare decluttering tools such trash can with a lid, box organizer, clothes hanger, vacuum cleaner, a broom, and a dustpan.


4.    Look for underutilized storage spaces such as under the bed or purchasing large storage bags.



5.    Follow the ‘one in, one out’ rule where you establish a house with less stuff by throwing one, old thing before buying one, new belonging.


6.    Work on one area at a time. If you try to declutter all at once, you'll never get to the end of it.


7.    Be smart while decluttering. Remember that the process is about making your home organized and not throwing everything all at one.


8.    Keep in mind that vertical storage works especially if it’s a hanging bar on your kitchen that sorts utensils, cutting boards, or condiments.


9.    Don’t throw small things on tables such as your wallet, keys, or mail. Instead, invest in hooks or catch-all trays.


10. Always make your bed once you wake up. This doesn’t just make you feel good about the day but also keep your bedroom organized first thing in the morning.


11. Stop hoarding groceries and other products. Only buy what you need for a week and then replenish it after.


12. Redo your pantry. Remove the expired items, wipe down the shelves, and rearrange everything according to a system.


13. Create a streamlined look whether it’s your books, groceries, art supplies, etc. Keep it clean, labeled, and in style.


14. Nightstand makeover. You can do this by taking everything off, wiping down the shelves, and putting what’s only essential.


15. Clean the closet and create zones for different types of clothing.


16. Refresh your laundry room by getting clear jar with scoops or empty fluid jar for liquid soap.
