5 EASY WAYS to de­clut­ter your home

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Room Refresh -

1 Start by sort­ing your items into dis­tinct piles: keep, do­nate, sell and throw away.

2 Keep: Pur­chase stor­age tubs and boxes and ef­fi­ciently pack away items you’ve elected to keep. You’ll be amazed how quickly you can con­dense your stuff.

3 Do­nate: Items that are in sound or­der should be given to friends and fam­ily or do­nated to char­ity. A good rule of thumb: if you haven’t used it in a year or two, it’s ready to find a new home.

4 Sell: If you fancy mak­ing an ex­tra buck, host a garage sale. You can also make use of on­line trad­ing sites, such as Gumtree or ebay.

5 Throw away: If things are too far gone, chuck ’em! Recycle as much as pos­si­ble and con­sider hir­ing a skip bin ahead of your spring clean if you have room­loads of junk to sort out.
