Having a tidy place where everything has a place it belongs to can help your mindset. Clutter can cause stress, which is why you want to avoid it. When your home is free of clutter, you won’t feel overwhelmed and will be more likely to feel relaxed and peaceful.

Do the Dishes Immediately

To prevent dishes from building up, do them straight away. You will probably try to procrastinate this task, which is why it’s a good idea to clean as soon as you eat. As the kitchen is such a high foot traffic area of the home, as soon as it’s a little messy, it becomes pronounced. This Over The Sink Dish Drying Rack will have you doing dishes quicker and keep your sink clear.

Keep Your Surfaces Clear

You need to keep in mind that surfaces in your house aren’t storage cabinets. It is very easy for surfaces to become just that. So it’s worth having homes for things or an enclosure in which you store things. If things pile up on surfaces they aren’t meant to be on, it makes the space look much messier than it actually is. Try keeping several storage bins around the house, like the DECOMOMO Large Foldable Storage Bins.

Switch to Digital Mail

Switching to digital mail won’t only minimize stress if you are a renter and have to do mail redirection whenever you move, it will also reduce physical clutter. That way, you will have less paper you have to worry about and can store your mail digitally. For the mail you can’t get in a digital format, sort it out as soon as you get it to reduce clutter.

Hang Up Jackets as Soon As You Get Home

If you don’t store your jackets and shoes properly as soon as you get home, they can create clutter, especially in the colder months. When we get home, we often get distracted by things we have to do and leave our stuff everywhere. Store your layers properly, and you won’t have to declutter it later. This compact VASAGLE Industrial Coat Rack Shoe Bench does the trick in providing enough space for your outdoor essentials.

Make a Wishlist

If you want to buy something add it to the wish list first. This can help prevent you from buying on an impulse. You can set a reminder 30 or 60 days in the future, and then you can decide whether you really need a specific item or whether it was something you felt like purchasing at the moment. It’s easy to declutter, but to keep your home clutter-free, you need to be cautious of what you bring into your home.
