MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

As an experiment, try to donate or throw out something you don't use before buying something else.

If you want to remember things, don't rely on your memory. Put it in writing or in a digital notebook.

  • Make sure to back up your computer files.
  • Make duplicates for your car and home keys.
  • Scan your IDs, passports and bank details, and put it all in a secured folder on your computer.

Schedule a time every day to de-clutter and to clean up.  15 - 30 minutes should be sufficient.

Scan all your photos to save space and ensure that you don’t lose these precious memories. 

  • Sort out your clothes, cleaning materials and everything else and keep them in labeled containers or closets at home. 
  • Organize your work space well so that your every move is conserved, knowing exactly where everything is.

Take note of the places at home or at the office that collect clutter and tidy them up daily.

Use apps to record your monthly accounts and spending.  

Dispose of expired canned foods and medicines to minimize the clutter and make space for new supplies.

Create a list of responsibilities for each family member. Review the list with them weekly to ensure that all tasks are being attended to. De-cluttering is easier as a team effort.

Unread magazines, catalogues and email are just a waste of time, money and space. If you haven't read a single email from a newsletter or other publication, just unsubscribe. 

Minimize food wastage by labelling all items in your fridge. Include the expiration date.

It is tiresome to clean everything on a single day. Rather create daily, weekly and monthly schedules for cleaning, distributing the tasks evenly.

Create an itemized list of home or office supplies so that you don’t run out. Don't overstock.

Donate all unused books and clothes to a charity or sell them.
