It’s always easy to say that you don’t have enough time to do something. We all lead hectic lifestyles and there’s just not enough time in the day for exercise, cooking healthy meals, or decluttering. Right? Not exactly. The truth is you can make time for anything you want to get done. Let’s take a closer look at how to declutter your home when you have no time.
Start with Just 15 Minutes a Day
You don’t need an entire day to declutter your home. All you need is 15 minutes a day. You’ve got that, right? It might be while you watch one of your favorite TV shows or while the kids are doing their homework. Just set aside 15 minutes to get it done.
Work It Into Your Schedule
For most people, working a declutter session into their schedule and writing it down in a planner is a great strategy. When it gets to that part of the day, you’ll take 15 minutes and get the job done before moving on to your next task. Soon, it will become part of your daily routine.
Choose Something Small
Many people make the mistake of trying to tackle the junk room instead of the junk drawer. Focus on something small, no matter where you’re working. For example, when it comes to the junk room, choose one area to declutter first. For example, if there are Christmas decorations in that room, choose to go through those one day and something else the next.
Set a Timer
Instead of wasting time looking at your watch, set a timer for your decluttering sessions. This way you focus at the task at hand. If you really get into it, you may just keep going. The truth is, we all say we don’t have time for something when it’s something we just don’t want to do.
Get the Family Involved
Last, but not least, you don’t have to do this on your own. Your kids can work on their rooms 15 minutes a day as well. Your husband can also work on the garage or his man cave. The more people working on the project, the more will get done and more quickly.
The truth is you do have time to declutter your home. All it takes is 15 minutes a day. Before you know it, your home will be organized and clutter-free.
