How to Declutter Your Home Before the Holiday Season
With the holiday season coming at you fast, there’s no better time than now to declutter your home. Not only do you want your home to look its best for your guests, but you need to clear out space for all those gifts!
There’s no right or wrong way to declutter your home before the holiday season, but there are some basic steps you can take to get the job done in an efficient manner:
• Make three piles: Items to keep, items to toss, and items to sell. This keeps you organized, while giving you a clear idea of next steps.
• Donate when possible: The holiday season is a time for giving. When possible, find items that you can donate to charity or give to children in need. There’s no better feeling during the holidays than knowing that you’ve helped someone who isn’t as fortunate as you.
• Host an estate sale: Depending on how much you have to sell, this is the best way to declutter your home while making some money along the way. Best yet, you can hand the entire process over to an estate sale company. Tip: get some ideas by visiting upcoming estate sales in your area.
There’s never a bad time to declutter your home, but doing so before the busy holiday season always makes sense. When it comes time to get started, let the three tips above guide you.
