5 Simple Steps To Declutter Your Entire Home

Over time, we accumulate stuff through our purchases. Yup, you heard it right. Stuff! The clothes we wear every day, the body care products we utilize to clean our bodies, toys that our children play with, books we read, journals we write in, cooking supplies for making food at home, and so much more. 

Sometimes, we accumulate too many copies of one specific item for whatever reason. The less possessions that you own, the simpler that your life can be because there will be less to maintain when it’s time to clean up your home. Today, we have 5 simple steps for you to start decluttering your entire home. 

You can log on to betFIRST to take a break from decluttering! Trying not to bust in Blackjack, spinning a roulette wheel, or playing baccarat can be fun and thrilling ways to decompress after a long decluttering session. 

1. Split the Decluttering Project Into Zones

Splitting your decluttering project into zones can help you to condense the entire journey into smaller tasks. Here’s a sample of what you can declutter for each zone.


  • Pots and pans
  • Silverware
  • Pantry food that has expired
  • Cleaning supplies


  • Clothes
  • Hobby supplies
  • Stuffed animals and toys
  • Wall art


  • Extra tools not being used
  • Unused outside toys
  • Things that belong in the house


  • Towels
  • Wash cloths
  • Body care products
  • Medicine cabinet

2. Identify Problem Areas In Each Zone

What type of clutter is overtaking each zone? Maybe there’s a lot of extra tupperware for leftovers that you aren’t using in the kitchen where you can keep a couple of sets and get rid of the rest. Perhaps you have 10 pairs of black pants and 15 pairs of jeans where you can safely dial back to 5 black pants and 8 pairs of jeans. 

Hence, if you have too much of one thing, keep enough for you to live comfortably and donate the rest. As you continue to identify the problem areas as you declutter, this will help you to reform your buying habits so that you do not overbuy on your possessions. 

3. Work Each Zone for 1-3 Days

Depending on how much that you have to declutter, it may take you about a minimum of 1 to 3 days to get one zone fully transformed. If it takes more days than that, that’s no worries at all! Splitting the zone into smaller tasks and working them in 10 to 30-minute spurts can help you to get everything done without feeling overwhelmed. 

4. Add Zones As Needed And Repeat Steps 2 and 3

You may realize another zone that needs to get added to your list. Think about those junk drawers that have accumulated so much stuff in a random place that doesn’t have a specific home in your dwelling. What about the closets that are overrun with so many things that the doors to them can barely close? Add the zones to list for a later date and schedule them accordingly. 

5. Routinely Declutter At Least Once A Month for Maintenance

While decluttering at least once a week would be more optimal, if you do not have time to do it that frequently, attempting to declutter at least once a month will maintain your newly organized space. Decluttering is always a continual process. As you acquire new items, it’s best to use up old items or discard or donate them if they are not needed anymore. 


We hope you have found this decluttering guide helpful to get you started on dialing down how many possessions you own to have a cleaner home. Happy decluttering!
