Habits To Stay Clutter-Free

  • by

You step into your home, greeted by a stunning custom storage space from More Space Place. Every item has its designated place, neatly arranged and easily accessible. From spacious closets and built-in cabinets to stylish shelving units and versatile storage solutions, your home exudes a sense of order and tranquility.

This is what we aim to do for every single one of our clients. Achieving a clutter-free home is a rewarding accomplishment, but the key to long-term success also lies in preventing clutter from reentering your space. One effective strategy for preventing clutter from creeping back into your space is to embrace the “one in, one out” rule. This simple yet powerful guideline helps you strike a balance between acquiring new items and keeping your home organized and clutter-free.

The “One In, One Out” Rule

The concept behind the “one in, one out” rule is straightforward: for every new item you bring into your home, whether it’s a piece of clothing, a gadget, or a decorative item, you must remove one existing item. By adhering to this rule, you prevent the accumulation of excess belongings and ensure that your space remains tidy and organized.

For this tactic to be most effective, you have to act as soon as possible. That is, as soon as you walk into your home with something new, you should immediately remove the “old” item. Even better, you can have a plan on what you are going to replace before you buy anything new.

Make Informed Decisions

For a less structured approach, you can try leaning into a more intuitive, mindful mindset. Before acquiring a new item, take a moment to assess whether it aligns with your needs and adds value to your life. Consider whether you have a specific place to store the item and whether you’re willing to part with something else to make room for it. By making informed decisions and prioritizing quality over quantity, you can prevent impulse purchases and ensure that every item in your home serves a purpose.
