10 De­clut­ter min­utes to... Your life

Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL! -

We’re con­stantly sur­rounded by stuff, but there’s a sim­ple way to main­tain that chic min­i­mal­ism you’ve been dream­ing of – and just 10 min­utes a day will do it!

1 Fo­cus on one space ‘Choose the space which needs the most at­ten­tion,’ says pro­fes­sional or­gan­iser Vicky Sil­ver­thorn. ‘Don’t look at the house as one big project or it will feel over­whelm­ing.’ 2 Sim­plify the process Col­lect all the items that need putting away in a bas­ket. Put the bas­ket by the door and put five of the items away a day. Man­age­able and easy. 3 Choose to love or leave Marie Kondo, author of The Life-chang­ing Magic Of Tidy­ing, ad­vises keep­ing only what brings you joy. Put un­wanted items in a bag and take them to the char­ity shop. 4 Stay mo­ti­vated Try writ­ing three lists: to do, do­ing, done. You can mi­grate tasks as you go along and mon­i­tor your progress. 5 The rule of five Ev­ery time you clean a room, get rid of five things you don’t use. Hell, if that in­cludes your boyfriend, then he’s got to go. Be ruthless.
