1. Try the Marie Kondo method
Inspired by Netflix’s ‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo’, people across the country have been decluttering their homes and donating their unwanted items to charity (BBC).
If you don’t have Netflix, don’t worry, here are some tips to help you declutter the Marie Kondo way:
Tip 1 - Sort through your stuff by categories not rooms. There are five categories you should address: start with clothing, then books, papers, miscellaneous items and sentimental belongings.
Tip 2 - As you are rifling through your things, deciding what to keep, donate and ditch, ask yourself whether each item sparks joy. If the answer is no, it’s time to go.
Tip 3 – To respect your belongings and maximise storage space, try the KonMari folding method. Here are some videos to help you fold t-shirts, underwear and socks.
