How to successfully de-clutter your home
We've all been there. Those items we think we absolutely need to keep and will use one day. The items shoved in the back of cupboards. The gifts given that were never displayed. Nostalgia can keep you holding on to objects even when you know they are past their prime.
In order to enjoy and appreciate your best home items you need to get rid of the unnecessary ones. I must admit, I love throwing away old objects. It gives me a sense of organisation and accomplishment (I definitely get this from my Mum). But even for me there are items that I probably should let go of but never do, even after moving house 5 times!
To help organise myself I created this chart below, which helped me decide what I should keep or throw away in just a few short questions.
I am making this available to all my fellow ladies who may have the same issue with clutter. TRUST ME - you will feel so much better once it's done and appreciate your most special and treasured pieces a lot more.

Now that you have cleared out the unwanted clutter, you may find yourself asking, how do I keep it this way? The simple answer is: neat storage solutions.
MY TOP 3 TIPS FOR KEEPING A ROOM NEAT & STYLISH
1. Make use of walls
Even if you only have a small space, hanging shelving is the easiest way to add extra storage space to a room.
2. Use storage baskets
Storage baskets like the ones below are a simple & on trend way to keep messy objects hidden in a room.
3. Make sure to have only your favourite items on display
Keep all sideboards, buffets & bedside tables clutter-free, with only your beautiful objects to be seen
Until next time xx
