How to Keep Your House Clutter Free

Do you find it a never-ending struggle to keep the house clutter free? If so, you certainly aren’t alone. Even with the best of intentions, it’s easy to get bogged down in clutter. This is especially true if you run a busy family home.

The trouble is, clutter can play havoc with your wellbeing. Have you ever noticed how much more relaxed and happier you feel when the home is clean and tidy? If you want to ensure it stays that way, here you’ll discover some of the best ways to keep your house clutter free.

Keep on top of mail

Let’s face it, one of the key culprits when it comes to clutter is mail. Whether it’s opened or unopened mail, it’s easy to let it build up on tables or countertops. While you can’t eliminate mail altogether, what you can do is have a system.

This means, having an organised space to store important mail, and throwing away any mail you don’t need. If you get into a habit of doing this daily, it’s going to help you really keep on top of it.

Ensure everything has a place

One of the main reasons clutter builds up is because you don’t have designated places for everything. When you don’t know where something goes, it’s easy to just dump it onto a work surface.

Take the time to find a place for everything in the home. If you find there’s a lot of things you don’t have a place for, consider investing in more storage so they can at least be hidden from view.

Use clever furniture

You can eliminate a lot of clutter simply by investing in clever furniture. For example, buying furniture such as coffee tables, which also come with built-in storage are great for removing clutter from view. You could also invest in an extendable dining table from Heal’s. Kitchen tables are commonly used to dump things onto. So, having one which can be folded away when not in use will eliminate some of the clutter.

As you can see, there are a few great ways you can use to keep the home clutter free. Once you’ve taken the initial steps to eliminate the clutter, you should find it a lot easier to keep on top of. Don’t underestimate the power of a junk drawer either as these can help to keep clutter which doesn’t have a place anywhere else in the home.

    I never thought of a junk drawer. We just have too many books. However, as some big atlases that aren’t even in the bookcase have just fallen on my foot, they will be heading to the charity shop tomorrow!
