The First Items to Get Rid of When Decluttering Your Apartment

One of the first steps that people think of when spring cleaning is getting rid of clutter – all those items in a home that are taking up space but don’t serve a purpose anymore. Over the months and years, it’s so easy to let items build up in a home. There are several reasons for this, but often it's because we fail to set aside time to go through things and sell, donate, or throw out the possessions we don’t need or want anymore.

At some point, however, decluttering is absolutely necessary so that you can free up space and have a cleaner home. But it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Here is a list of three areas that you can concentrate on, to give you a starting point on your decluttering:

  • Clothes you don’t wear – Even though our closets are packed with clothes, we only wear some of them and the rest hang there, unused. So go ahead and donate or throw out any clothes with broken zippers or holes. Get rid of those things that are out of fashion or don’t fit anymore. Give away things that other people can use, like old coats.
  • Junk drawer junk – Chances are, your junk drawer contains items that you have no idea what they are or where they go, but you’re hoping you’ll remember their purpose one day. Go ahead and throw those things out.
  • Old products – Whether it’s that shampoo or lotion you don’t like, or stale food in your fridge, toss old products out. You’ll never use them and neither will anyone else.

Once you start expelling clutter from your home, you’ll find that you have more space to keep new items, or simply more space to stretch out and enjoy life. For more information on living in our spacious, airy Lady Lake, FL, apartments, contact The Quarters Apartment Homes today.
