Declutter Your Home and Mind

Hey guys!

One of my many favorite things has to be organization! Yes, I’m one of those people who love to organize anything I can get my hands on. Over time I’ve found that I enjoy much more of a minimalist lifestyle when it comes to my work and home life. I wanted to share some of the easy things I do to create a more decluttered home. These things also help me to not have such a busy mind in the grand scheme of things. When my home or work is cluttered, I tend to feel more stressed or not as calm. So today I’m spilling all of my tips in hopes that they can help you too. Let’s get started!

  • clear out texts and calls from your phone
  • erase unneeded photos, videos, and notes from your phone
  • donate clothes and shoes from your closet that you don’t wear
  • purge your home room by room of old decor, and nick-nacks you don’t need
  • clean out your pantry of old and expired foods
  • mark things off of your to-do list daily
  • trash any mascara or foundation that’s been opened past it’s expiration date
  • label everything – it makes life easier
  • unsubscribe to store emails you never shop at
  • delete apps you don’t use
  • delete all junk mail

Here’s a list of even more items you could purge immediately:

  • chargers to old phones
  • shoes that don’t fit
  • old magazines or books
  • trash in your purse
  • socks with holes
  • product packaging
  • decor that doesn’t fit your style
  • dried up nail polish
  • random tupperware lids
  • old or tangled jewelry
  • old phone cases
  • expired coupons
  • fraying makeup brushes

Thank you all so much for reading! Please feel free to leave any of your suggestions in the comments below. I’m always looking for new ways to de-stress and de-clutter. I hope your day is awesome; love and light! :)

  1. These are great tips Amy! I definitely need to work on throwing out expired makeup. I would add moving around light furniture in your room can be a great organizational tool as well as trash in your room.


  2. Thanks for great tips❤️ I’m definitely going to use them. Having clean and decluttered surroundings makes me feel instantly calmer and happier, and that’s how I want to start my next year at uni.
