Spring cleaning is a time to get busy and get rid of all that clutter that’s been weighing you down. There are plenty of things you can do – from hiring a skip bin, bringing in a professional cleaning service, or doing it a little bit at a time. Whatever strategy works for you is a step in the right direction. Maid in Melbourne is a trusted cleaning service in Melbourne, and we have six ways that you can declutter your home this spring.
Hire a Skip Bin
Hiring a skip bin is an excellent option if you have a lot of rubbish or goods lying around that can’t be donated. A skip bin provides you with an easy way to dispose of this rubbish, and there’s an organised system in place to have all of that rubbish removed once you’re finished.
Pick One Area of Your Home at a Time
Cleaning your entire home all at once can seem overwhelming and downright demotivating. Section your house into individual spaces (i.e. Kitchen, bathroom, living room, etc.) and clean one of those areas every day for a week. One area is easy to take on and you’ll be much more motivated to stick to your cleaning plan!
Give Yourself 15 Minutes
You can get a lot of home cleaning done in 15 minutes. If you set 15 minutes aside every day and fully utilise them to focus on decluttering, you’ll be amazed at the progress you can make. Set the timer, put on some music, and see how much you can get done before the timer runs out.
The Hanger Experiment
You may have heard of this trick before, and it’s popular for a reason – it works. Put all of your clothes on hangers, then place them on your clothing rack in the reverse direction. Every time you wear an item of clothing, put it back in your wardrobe with the hanger facing the right direction. After six months, get rid of the clothes that are still in the reverse direction – you don’t get enough use out of them to justify keeping them around.
Go around your home and find ten things to throw away, ten things to donate, and ten things that you’re allowed to keep. Repeat this process as much as necessary.
Fill One Rubbish Bag
Just one! You can go to any room of the house and throw out whatever you like, but set yourself the goal of getting rid of one rubbish bag worth of clutter, and you’ll feel all the better for it.
