Why should you declutter your home this winter?

Spring cleaning may get all the hype, but winter is in fact the best time of the year to declutter your home!

Whether you’re planning on sitting by the fire on cold evenings or tucking up in bed to watch Netflix, the last thing you want to do is be surrounded by piles of clutter.

5 reasons why decluttering in winter is a fantastic idea:

  1. Boost morale

Living in a cluttered home is draining – not to mention the impact it has on your brain and emotional well-being!

Christmas is the most magical time of the year, and some people would go as far as saying it’s the most stressful. But a cluttered, unorganised home can make you even more stressed.

Decluttering allows you to enjoy spending time indoors and can also help you to relax in the comfort of your home. Clearing clutter is a great way to clear your mind too – helping you to feel happier and at ease.

  1. Improve health

Before the winter blues kick in – give your property a good clean. Things that are just sat around act as a magnet for dust and cause germs and bacteria to grow.

Make sure you find a suitable spot to keep personal items to prevent them from being covered in cobwebs!

  1. Put seasonal items away

You certainly won’t be needing your paddling pool for quite a few months! And after Christmas, it’s deemed bad luck to take your decorations down after January 6th. Consider putting seasonal items away and keeping them safe for next year.

If you’re short on space in your loft or garage, a clear-out is a fantastic way to free up storage space and to get your home organised. Any unwanted items can be donated to a good cause, friends and family, or thrown in a skip – provided by Chorley Skips.

  1. Get organised

Decluttering helps you to get your home organised for the winter months ahead.

Start with your wardrobe. Get rid of any clothes that don’t fit or haven’t been worn in a long time. An organised wardrobe will enable you to see what’s what – and help you to find your favourite outfits without making a mess.

Sorting through toys, photographs, trophies and certificates in the basement will allow you to reclaim valuable space and fit more in without making your home look cluttered.

It’s almost too easy to load everything into the garage – especially if you don’t use it for your car! Although it’s out of sight, the longer you leave it, the longer it will take to clear.
