April is the time of Baisakhi, Puthandu, Ugadi, Poila Boishakh when people buy new clothes and new things for their home. But, what about the old ones? Let’s take you through a quick guide of making space for new things in your home.
Spend some time and look at your room:
Festive season is the season of guests and obviously you don’t want your guests to take with them a cluttered disheveled look of your home. So, visualize how you want your room to look like and figure out what unnecessary pieces of things are lying there in your room unused and untouched, which doesn’t have to present in your room and making your room look cluttered. Make a plan to get rid of those.
Arrange your Wardrobe:
As you open the wardrobe to take out your clothes, halt and spend a few minutes going through the stuffs that you are not using anymore. If they’re seasonal clothes, keep them aside in one shelf and get rid of the rest. Of course, you need space to keep your new clothes.
Declutter one item a day:
You don’t need to do everything at once after all Rome wasn’t built in a day. Start with one item a day. Organise it regularly and follow this new, efficient way of keeping a check on incoming and outgoing stuffs. And by the next occasion, you will have less work to do.
Take up a task and complete it:
After sorting out things, for example: recycle, resell, donation, give it to a friend etc, don’t keep the boxes piled up in one corner of your house for the next day. It’s a now or never concept. Do it asap on that day and finish the task.
Sell useful things for others:
New Year is a time to clear the old ones and unused ones and fill them with the new ones. But, at the same time some stuff can prove useful for others though you don’t need it. Sell them now!
Phew! Take a look around you now. It’s perfect for this festivity of April, isn’t it!
