Top 10 tips to declutter your home this spring

If you’re planning to do some serious spring-cleaning, the first step is clearing out everything that’s been piling up around the house all winter. For those of us with a tendency to hoard, decluttering can be daunting, but the real hurdle is just figuring out where to start.


For the best results, forget the one-solution-fits-all approach and tackle each room as its own beast.


Decluttering the kitchen, living room and bedroom can feel like mammoth tasks. For the best results, forget the one-solution-fits-all approach and tackle each room as its own beast.



  1. Decant bulk goods such as rice, cereal and pasta, into see-through containers so you’ll know what you have and see as soon as you’re running low.
  2. Group similar items like tins or spices together with any duplicates in a second row right behind the others.
  3. Consolidate! Group light bulbs, batteries and bin bags together so you know where to find them and when to buy more.
  4. Paper seems to pile up in the kitchen. Keep one spot for mail, bills, etc. Consolidate piles into one pile. Once a week, sort through the pile and recycle, shred or file.
  5. Find new homes for books you have finished and If you’ve joined the digital age, do you really need to keep all those CDs?
  6. Add extra storage: put up hooks on doors and on the backs of cupboards, add storage boxes on top of cupboards and under beds.
  7. Create clutter-free zones, such as the dining table, so some surfaces are always clear and ready for their intended purpose - eating your meals!
  8. Put out-of-season clothing into storage or into suitcases in the loft.
  9. If it doesn’t fit or you haven’t worn it in a year, recycle your old clothing, shoes and accessories and give them to a needy charity.
  10. Reducing clutter around the bathroom sink will really help you create a feeling of calm! Return toiletries, perfume, polishes, hair care products, moisturisers, hairbrushes, etc. to the medicine cabinet or drawers as soon as you’ve finished using them.
  11. Tidy up wires to keep your home both safe and more organised. Try some of these tricks...
  12. Anything you no longer need you could sell on ebay, Facebook Marketplace or give to charity.
