Start By Setting Clear Goals

Before you start throwing unwanted things out, take a moment to visualize how you want your space to look and function. This will help you stay motivated and focused throughout the process. Consider what areas need more attention than others —including your kitchen, living room, or bedroom — and set specific goals for each room. Whether it's cleaning out the basement or organizing your closet, having a clear vision will guide your efforts.


Sort & Declutter

To effectively declutter, start by sorting your belongings into categories. Create four different piles for all your items: things to keep, to donate, to sell (if applicable), and to throw away. As you go through everything, ask yourself if each item has a purpose or brings you joy. Have you used this item in the past year, or has it just been gathering dust? Letting go of unnecessary stuff will help create a more organized and peaceful environment.


Establish Your System

Organization is key to maintaining a clutter-free home. Create a system that works for you, based on the layout of your rooms and your daily routine. Blue and Green Cleaning Corp recommends using storage containers, baskets, and labels to keep things in order. In Boston apartments, where space can be limited, maximize storage potential by utilizing under-bed storage or wall hooks.


Maintain & Review

Once all the initial work is over, now here comes the hard part — maintaining the new order. Remember to keep tidying throughout the upcoming weeks to prevent clutter from accumulating again. Keep reviewing your organizational system to make sure it still works, and recognize that you may need to make adjustments as your lifestyle evolves.
