How to Reduce the Clutter in Your Home

Clutter often makes things much more complicated than they need to be. Clutter makes it so that you don’t know what you have and struggle to find things you need. By decluttering your house, you can save a lot of time and effort when looking for things.

Create More Kitchen Storage

The kitchen often gets cluttered very quickly because it is used so often. Throughout the day, you are constantly cooking, pulling out dishes and utensils, grabbing snacks, and doing other things in the kitchen. To reduce clutter in the kitchen, you can be more mindful about storing things back where they belong after using them. If you find yourself running out of storage space, you can actually create more with minimal changes. For example, you can install hooks on the insides of your cabinets. These hooks can hold everything from pans and mugs to potholders, freeing up space in other cabinets or drawers.

Organize Your Garage

Garages also tend to be quite cluttered since they often hold a lot of miscellaneous items that don’t get used very often. Organization helps prevent tools and important safety equipment like fire extinguisters and saftey glasses from getting lost in your garage. Adding heavy-duty hooks and shelves to the walls can help you organize your longer and shorter tools by size and use. Additionally, you could even make labels for which tool goes where to keep things really organized.

Get Rid of Things You Don’t Need

One of the most effective ways to reduce clutter is to reduce the number of things that you have. An extremely cluttered house may indicate to you that you simply have more stuff than you need. There are many ways to get rid of things you don’t need, including having a yard sale and giving them to other family or friends. Another way to declutter is by donating some of your belongings to charities and thrift stores. Many charities and thrift stores have proceeds that go to specific causes or people. You can choose to donate to one that uses its proceeds in ways that you approve of, meaning that you are doing good while also getting rid of things you don’t need in your home.


Decluttering your home will make your living space much more functional. Additionally, living in that space will be less stressful as well. You will find that you enjoy living in your home more when it is properly decluttered.
