It has been scientifically proven that clutter increases your stress levels. By decluttering your home, you can help decrease your stress levels and make life tolerable once again.
Here are some smart decluttering hacks to help relieve stress
Use shoe organizers for bathroom storage – Shoe organizers are not just for organizing shoes you know. In fact, you can use them in your bathroom, by hanging them on the inside of cabinet doors. Shoe organizers in the bathroom are great for storing hair spray, razors and nail polish remover, clearing your bathroom counters of valuable space.
Use labels for storage bins – Instead of just piling things on closet shelves, consider using storage bins with labels on them. You can use them in the bedroom closets for things like socks and jewelry or in the baby nursery for things like crib sheets, towels and blankets. By putting labels on storage bins, you can find things quick and easy and it helps keep things organized.
Use pillowcases for organizing sheets – This is a great hack for keeping your bedding together and organized. (I am the one who wads up the fitted sheet and shoves it into a corner of the closet.) Using one pillowcase from a bedding set, fold the rest of the bed sheets and pillowcases and store them in the pillowcase. This way, when it is time to change your bedding, you won’t have to look high and low for matching sheets and pillowcases.
Use bowls for organizing remote controls – Remote controls easily get lost, which can be extremely frustrating at times. You can put an end to this frustration by placing a plastic bowl on the coffee table or end table and toss all the remote controls in there to keep them organized and within reach when you need them.
Use trashcans for opening mail – Dealing with daily mail can get a bit overwhelming if you just toss it into a pile. Instead, each day when you open the mail, do so next to a trashcan. This way, you can toss out any junk mail or mail you don’t need instead of having cluttered mail piles.
I have been on a mission to declutter my home. It is truly amazing how fast stuff accumulates! Now, if I can just dominate the junk drawer that takes me down each and every time!
