Diamond Maids presents 5 reasons for clutter in your home. In all likelihood, there isn’t a single day that goes by that something within your home isn’t in its proper place. Many items that are out of their allocated spaces can lead to clutter. We all lead busy lives, so a bit of mess does happen, but what is the cause?

5 Reasons for Clutter in Your Home and How to fix it

You Are Not Sure How Long You Should Keep Items

Trying to figure out the right time to donate, shred, toss, keep, or sell items within your home can sometimes be confusing. On The Spruce, they discuss how to know what to keep and when to get rid of it. They recommend asking the following questions as foundations for deciding: “Do you love it?” “Do you have duplicates?” “Do you use it regularly?” and “Does it have an expiration date?”

There Isn’t an Established Home Organization Routine

Finding an organizational routine that works for you and your schedule can be tricky. We recommend working on de-cluttering your home daily for at least 15-20 minutes. In a previous blog post, we discussed cleaning tips for a busy life, so check that out to create the routine that fits your busy schedule.

5 Reasons for Clutter in Your Home: From Clutter Busters to Sentimentality

Clutter Busters Are Not in Your Home

You might be wondering, “What are clutter busters?” It’s simple – anything that can help organize. It can be folders, desk or drawer organizers, or something to hold multiple items on your coffee table (remote controls, tissue box, magazines, coasters). The more of these you have, the easier it’ll be to keep clutter at bay.

More And More Shopping

We have all bought things we didn’t necessarily need, mainly when great deals like Holiday Sales exist. After a while, all those purchases add up. What can help prevent spontaneous purchases is asking yourself, “If I didn’t get this item today, could I live without it?” If the answer is yes, put it back, and if the answer is no, add it to your cart.

Sentimental Attachment to Items Within Your Home

There is nothing wrong with having a sentimental attachment to items that remind you of your childhood, or something that was a family member’s, etc. However, when it comes to things like postcards, sippy cups, and the like, you shouldn’t feel guilty about giving those things away.

Our recommendation is to keep items with high sentimental value. These could be pictures, heirlooms, or anything that would cause you heartache if you got rid of them. Toss out everything else.
