Sorting your home doesn’t have to be an expensive project.
In fact, small tweaks around your home can help declutter and improve its appearance. Better yet, the majority of them won’t cost you a cent!
Don’t keep items out of guilt
If you’re holding onto items out of guilt or sentimentality – it’s time for them to go.
We’re talking about gifts that don’t suit your personal style or items that do nothing more than take up space within your home. If you’re only holding onto something because it was given to you, it’s time to rethink your attitude and start decluttering.
You can always choose to donate items to charity – this way you know they’ll be passed on to an owner who cherishes them.
Create ‘luxe’ looks for less
Have you ever found yourself lusting after an Instagram perfect home? Take a few moments to really look at what items are catching your eye and consider how you can turn inexpensive items into something ‘luxe’ with a coat of paint or even smaller tweak.
Top examples include popping a new finish on your kitchen table, painting chairs, drawers, or hanging floating shelves to give a ‘luxe’ feel in any room.
Remove ‘problem’ items
Do you have a chair that gets piled with clothes every day? Or is it a dish rack that you never remember to empty?
A great way to sort your home without spending any money is to remove problem items that are only causing your grief. It may seem like a drastic move, but you’ll be thanking yourself when you no longer have piles of clutter causing issues around your home.
Keep your ‘time’ budget full
Lastly, when it comes to sorting your home on a budget it also pays to consider the time it will take and whether you’re overdrawing on time that could be spent elsewhere.
This may be the case for parents and time poor professionals looking to find balance in their homelife – and can be achieved by hiring a professional organiser. Whether you need a quick once over or dedicated support for a problem area, professional organisers can solve it all.
