Clearing the Clutter

An organized closet space

If you’re tired of a messy or cluttered apartment, we have some suggestions for you! Today on The Club at Emerald Waters Blog, we’ll share tips for organizing your Hollywood, FL apartment so you have less clutter, more space, and a cleaner living arrangement.

 

The Daily Declutter

Rather than trying to dedicate an entire weekend to decluttering, we suggest that you spend a little bit of time doing it daily. While decluttering an entire room or closet in one sitting may take longer than a few minutes, dedicating too much time to cleaning out your house can get overwhelming and shouldn’t be done very often. Instead, choose a time each day where you can add in ten minutes of decluttering to your daily routine. It might not seem like you get much done on any given day, but over the course of a few weeks, you’d be surprised how far it goes!

 

Donation Box

Do you have a designated donation box in your home? If not, we highly suggest you get one soon. That way when you’re decluttering, deciding to donate something will be quick and easy, because you already know where to put it until you get a chance to drop off your donations at a local charity. When the box gets full, having all of these items in one place makes for a quick and easy donation process that will make you want to fill up another box again soon! 

 

Examining Your Wardrobe

Now is a great time to go through your closet and get rid of what you no longer love, what no longer fits you, and what is torn or damaged. If this seems too daunting of a task, ask a friend to help you and give you a second opinion on things. Or simply start by getting rid of things you know you don’t want, and then looking into making decisions about items you may have more of an emotional attachment to. Imagine how great it will be to have room for new purchases!
