Having a cluttered and messy home can severely impact upon your visitor's impressions of your home. The piles of dust-collecting items and dirty clothes are a representation of who you are as a person and what kind of lifestyle you lead. By following the tips below, you will soon find decluttering your home an enjoyable part of your daily routine.

Tip #1 - Always declutter

Whether you are in your cleaning session or not, it's extremely important to always pick up items to ensure a clean environment. Leaving items around (such as a sock on the floor) will promote others to follow suit.

Tip #2 - Reward yourself

If you're finding it hard to maintain a regular decluttering routine, try rewarding yourself through any means in which you find appropriate, such as a treat for every room you successfully declutter.

Tip #3 - Collect and label bags

Gather a number of garbage bags and label them according to what kind of items are laying around your home. Examples include "give away", "throw out" and "return to where it belongs". This organization will ensure that you are not constantly going back and forth, which could potentially confuse and put you off-track.

Tip #4 - Never leave rooms unfinished

Once you start decluttering a room, you should always finish it before moving onto another. Doing so will allow you to clean at your own pace.

Tip #5 - Plan

If you have time, try to plan where you are going to declutter and what order you are going to work your way throughout the house. You should work in the order which seems most logical according to your home's layout.
