A Room-by-Room Guide to Decluttering

Living Room

  1. Start by removing any items that don't belong in the living room and returning them to their proper places.
  2. Clear out unnecessary furniture or items that crowd the space.
  3. Organise entertainment units, shelves and coffee tables by categorising items and getting rid of anything you no longer need or use.
  4. Consider implementing storage solutions such as baskets, bins or shelves to keep items organised and out of sight.


Begin by emptying cabinets and drawers, discarding expired food items, and donating or getting rid of kitchen gadgets or appliances you no longer use.

  1. Group similar items together and designate specific areas for cooking utensils, pots and pans and pantry items.
  2. Invest in storage solutions such as drawer dividers, spice racks, and labelled containers to maximise space and keep your kitchen organised.
  3. Regularly declutter your fridge and freezer by removing expired or unused foods to maintain freshness and create more space.



  1. Declutter bedside tables, dressers and wardrobes by sorting through clothing, accessories, and personal items, donating or selling anything you no longer wear or need.

  3. Utilise under-bed storage bins or organisers to store extra linens, shoes and out-of-season clothing.
