Keep Your Hawaii Home Clutter Free with These Tips

Did you make a New Year’s resolution to de-clutter your Hawaii home? If you kept that resolution (good for you!), then you still need to learn how to keep the clutter from accumulating in the first place. Once you’ve mastered how to stay on top of your stuff you’ll no longer have to do a big purge at the beginning of each year. That’s why we’re sharing our best tips for keeping your home clutter-free. Follow these tricks and you’ll enjoy a tidy home all year long!

Be more mindful of what you buy

The best tip for keeping your Hawaii home clutter-free is to be more mindful of what you bring into your home in the first place. Spend a few weeks paying close attention to what it is you buy. When you can, think twice about what you’re purchasing. Do you really love it? Can you live without it? If not, why? Is it made to last? If you discover you make a lot of impulse purchases, then it can be helpful to shop with a list and only buy what’s on your list. If you find something else you’d like to have, then wait until your next shopping trip.

Let size guide your purchases

Living a more clutter-free lifestyle also means letting size guide your purchases. Don’t acquire more things than your home can comfortably contain. It’s another way of thinking about living within your means. Let the number of your belongings match the lifestyle you currently have. If not, you’ll soon find yourself stressing about taking care of things you just don’t have room for.

Know where everything goes

When you live within your means, then it’s much easier to have a dedicated space for every item you bring home. And knowing where everything goes is key to keeping clutter out of your home. When you’re considering a purchase, then you should also think about where you’ll display or store that item. If you’re not sure, then reconsider buying it.

Be smart about storage

Having a smart storage system is also essential when you’re working to have a clutter-free home. Know what items you’ll store out in the open and those you’ll keep boxed up and out of sight. Maybe you have a lovely collection of vintage linens. It would be smart to store them folded on an open shelf where you can enjoy them all year. Conversely, you probably don’t want to look at your holiday decorations in the middle of July, so you can keep those items in boxes in little-used areas of your home like the basement or garage.

Making tidying a ritual

Finally, keep your home clutter-free well after New Year’s Day by creating cleaning rituals you do every day. It only takes a few minutes to tidy your home’s common areas. Fluff pillows and fold blankets in your living room. Put clean dishes away in your kitchen. If you don’t get to it all at night, then finish up first thing in the morning. It may seem silly to tidy up things you use every day, but it will make your home feel much more organized and peaceful.
