Decluttering in 2023: Why it’s More Important Than Ever in Australia

As we begin a new year, many of us are thinking about ways to improve our lives and our homes. One way to do this is by decluttering. Decluttering is the process of getting rid of things that we no longer need or use, in order to create a more organised and peaceful living space. In this blog post, we’ll explore why decluttering is particularly important in 2023 in Australia, and provide some tips and tricks to help you get started.

The Importance of Decluttering in 2023

Australia is currently facing a housing crisis, with many people struggling to find affordable places to live. This means that many of us are living in smaller spaces than we would like, which can make it even more important to keep our homes free from clutter. Not only does clutter make our homes feel smaller and more cramped, but it can also be overwhelming and stressful. By decluttering, we can create a more comfortable and inviting living space.

Another reason why decluttering is important in 2023 is the increasing focus on sustainability. With climate change becoming an increasingly pressing issue, many of us are looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment. Decluttering is one way to do this, as it allows us to get rid of items that we no longer need, which can reduce the amount of waste we produce. Additionally, by decluttering, we may be able to find items that can be repurposed or recycled, which can help to reduce our environmental footprint.

Tips and Tricks for Decluttering in 2023

If you’re ready to start decluttering in 2023, here are some tips and tricks to help you get started:

  1. Start small. If the thought of decluttering your entire home feels overwhelming, start with a small area, such as a closet or a drawer. This will help you to build momentum and make the process feel less daunting.
  2. Set a timer. When you start decluttering, set a timer for 20-30 minutes. This will help you to stay focused and prevent you from getting bogged down in the process.
  3. Use the “one in, one out” rule. For every new item that you bring into your home, get rid of one that you no longer need. This will help to keep your home from becoming cluttered in the first place.
  4. Be ruthless. When you’re deciding what to keep and what to get rid of, be ruthless. If you haven’t used an item in the last year, or if it no longer serves a purpose, get rid of it.
  5. Find a use for everything. When you’re decluttering, try to find a use for everything that you’re getting rid of. For example, you can donate clothes that no longer fit to a charity, or sell items that are still in good condition.

By following these tips and tricks, you can declutter your home in 2023, create a more organised and peaceful living space, and reduce your environmental footprint. So, what are you waiting for? Get started today and enjoy the benefits of a decluttered home.

Rightsize Your Home Online Courses

We have 3 online courses to help you get started in your Rightsizing journey.

Shifting Your Mindset ($27)

This course helps you understand what you’re thinking and how to think about blockers.  It’s ‘mindset’ talk from the people that know!  The ones who’ve done it!

Empty nesters often find themselves with too much home and things, and not enough time. They may also feel like they need to downsize, but the prospect of packing up a lifetime’s worth of memories can be overwhelming. In order to move forward, it is important you shift your mindset from ‘you’ll never get rid of all this stuff to ‘it’s time’. These online courses will help you sort through the clutter in your home and set aside things that mean a lot – the rest will be given away, sold, upcycled, or discarded. The goal is to create less stress and more organisation, which in turn helps you live more comfortably. 

It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone, but once you do, moving on will be easier than ever before. Join this course to learn how to downsize without going crazy, so you can make room for the things that really matter most.
