The New Year is an exciting and optimistic time, full of hopes for the future. Many people set themselves resolutions; a promise to improve aspects of their lives throughout the year ahead. It’s the perfect time of year to get organised, and with that in mind, here are four reasons to declutter your home in the New Year.
1. A fresh start
New Year, new you! Taking the time to declutter your space can also help to declutter your mind for reduced stress and clearer thoughts. Get rid of old, unwanted items to banish negative associations. With a tidy home, you’ll be surprised how much easier it is to stay focused and move forward with the things that really matter.
2. More space for new items
It’s likely that you’ve received gifts over the Christmas period. Add those to any too-good-to-miss January sale purchases and you could be in desperate need of more space. Organising your home can free up storage for new items, without adding unnecessary clutter.
3. Good for your health
It can be hard to clean around clutter and so, naturally, items can gather dust. In some instances, there can even be a risk of damp or mould. Living amongst these conditions can have a negative effect on your health, especially if you have a pre-existing medical condition. Having a clear out gives you a chance to clean those hard to reach areas, for a healthier, happier home.
4. Earn some extra money
You might be amazed at how much you don’t want or need. Items can be donated to charity, or if you need some extra pennies, you can sell them online. A lot of people find January a tight month financially, so this could be a really great way to earn a little extra money in the new year.
Of course, you may come across valuables or keepsakes that you can’t bear to part with. Consider self-storage for a safe, affordable way to store precious items without cluttering your home.
