Organizing and decluttering can be a challenging task for most people. However, it's necessary to keep your home tidy and functional.

Let's begin by taking a "12-12-12" tour of your home. This tactic involves selecting 12 items to discard, 12 to donate, and 12 to relocate to a more suitable location. This tactic is valuable for a fun competition with your partner or children.

You can also keep a charity basket in a central location, like the laundry room, where everyone can donate unwanted items like outgrown clothes, books, and small toys. It's also essential to clear the pantry by throwing out expired spices, canned goods, and anything else that's been in your cupboard for too long.

Decluttering Your Home Checklist

Using inexpensive drawer organizers to separate small items in the kitchen and bathroom can also help keep things tidy. Another effective method is to go through your clothes closet or cupboard and separate your items into something you love, don't love, or are unsure about. You can then donate the things you don't need while keeping the ones you love.

Finally, make it a daily habit to involve your family in cleaning by asking them to pick up ten things and put them where they belong. You can turn it into a game to see who can finish first, with a prize like an extra story or 15 minutes before bedtime.
