space you can organize is affected by the amount of time you are dedicating to organising. If the task
you have to organise is something that will exceed the time you, then it is advised to break the task
into manageable sections. For example if you want to organise a big space based on the time you
have available, you can divide the task by starting from arranging a drawer. If don’t exceed the
timing, then you can as well fix more drawers. It is importance to know what you can do with the
time dedicated daily .i.e. morning afternoon and evening. Always choose the time that will be
convenient for you so you don’t get yourself hostage with task.
EMPTY THE SPACE
While decluttering and organizing your space, knowing the items in the space will also help make
decluttering and organising a lot easier. You empty the room to begin work. When the space or
room is empty, it is easier to identify what you want, where you want it and how you want it
organized. Hence, clean the empty room or space thoroughly. If the space you are working on is
very large, breakdown the space into lesser sections to fit into the time you have.
IDENTIFY THE ITEMS CAREFULLY
After emptying the space, the next thing to do will be to identify the items thoroughly. You need to
honestly identify what you need and what you don’t need because that will help give your room or
space a less stuffed attraction. If you want your room, house or space beautiful, you need to
carefully and honestly let the unnecessary items go and keep only the necessary. To create a more
comfortable environment, save yourself time with cleaning and looking for things by surrounding
yourself with necessary items. After sorting this items thoroughly, create a bin for the unnecessary
things. You can either give the unnecessary things out to the orphanage or sell them.
LABEL EACH SHELVES/CLOSET/DRAWERS
Save yourself the stress of finding items again by labelling each shelves, drawers, and closet where
all the selected items (necessary) will be kept. This labels place on each shelf will help everyone
locate any item without messing the house again.
FIX THE ITEMS IN THE LABELLED SHELVES/DRAWERS/CLOSET
Carefully place the items you have selected in the right place. For example, books should be kept in
the right shelves. Your cloths should be properly place in the closet and if it is possible to arrange the
cloths in order you want to wear them then it will be a good idea. Place everything carefully and
neatly in the drawers, shelves and closet. If the space you are decluttering and arranging is quite
large, divide the task by the time you have dedicated to it. Decluttering is not always an easy task
and during the process you realise that it is overwhelming and not really a bad idea after all to keep
your home arranged.
CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE
Have ever thought of how you want your home to be? This is quite challenging to deal with but you
need to have an idea of what you want your home like. This is why, while decluttering, it is
recommended you visit other homes to see and compare with yours. However, getting pictures from
friends or helping them with their decluttering task will also help reframe you perception about how
you home is and how you will like it to be and the things to put in place to make your home
absolutely amazing . Hence, getting help from other people or from friends colleagues at work will
help change your perception totally. Decluttering and reorganising routine can be very boring so
going out will also help reduce the tension and save you from getting frustrated with the work.

acquiring items that are not necessary should be discouraged. Live simple stress free by organising
your home. However, after you declutter and reorganise your home, it is advised that you adopt the
routine of maintaining your home daily. Enjoy every single day in a comfortable environment.
