Have you ever noticed that clearing out your household feels like clearing your head? That’s because a messy room is often a reflection of your troubled mind.

However, the sight of a cluttered living space can only escalate any negative feelings you may have.

But if this option is currently unavailable to you, here are some pointers on how often you should declutter your house.

Here’s the 411 on how often you should purge your home of excess items.

Why decluttering is beneficial

Though it can be a lot of work, there are many pros to restoring order to your house. First of all, psychologists have reported that many people feel refreshed, unburdened, and significantly happier after cleaning their homes. An organized living space provides a sense of balance, comfort, and content. Although the outcome is highly satisfying, getting rid of clutter requires you to have access to sufficient storage space. If a lack of storage is disrupting your cleaning session, contacting a storage Brooklyn company is your one-way ticket to a clutter-free home.

When is a good time to start clearing out your household?

There are several occasions that provide the perfect opportunity for decluttering. Generally speaking, tidying up whenever you’re available is a great way to spend your free time, as it benefits your mental and physical health. But we’re usually reluctant to waste our me-time on household chores. So, check out some of the situations that provide ideal circumstances for clearing out your home:

  • welcoming a new household member
  • moving between cities with long-distance movers Brooklyn
  • getting married
  • expecting a child
  • downsizing to a smaller home
  • other occasions that require clearing out your household

Moving out is almost always accompanied with getting rid of clutter.

How often should you do it?

Naturally, the frequency at which you should do the decluttering depends on several factors. First, not every room will need cleaning up at the same time. Thus, you can organize your household based on whether certain rooms need purging. However, if you can spare a day, go ahead and clear out the entire home by category. Go through your books, clothes, appliances, etc. separately. This Japanese decluttering method helps you get a better understanding of how many unnecessary items you have.

Despite the challenge, clearing out your household can be an awarding experience. And with the help of a respectable storage company, any obstacle that may stand in your way, such as limited storage, is easily overcome!

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
