5 EASY WAYS to declutter your home
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.
