Basement decluttering. Two word I don’t necessarily want to acknowledge, because they involve work.
Most of my basement is unfinished. You know what that means!
Piles of junk mixed in with the good stuff, with really no organization to any of it.
While I am a neat freak, I also believe in the saying, “Out of sight, out of mind.”
Since I don’t have to look at it on a regular basis, I can pretend it’s not there.
Pulling out the Christmas decorations!
It was obvious that the basement needed a decluttering session – and fast.
By the way, I also need to mention that I’m a fan of making things as easy as possible.
That’s why I devised this plan.
Basement Decluttering Plan:
Set aside three days, for 30 minutes per day.
On those days, set your alarm and roll up your sleeves.
Work non-stop. No breaks, no texts, no other interruptions.
Clean out the following, which are no longer used, operational, cleanable, or relevant:
•Old floral arrangements
•Wall décor, like framed pictures
At the end of each 30-minute session, make a trip to a local donation site. That way, you and your family members are not tempted to keep some of the items.
I decided to sweep the basement as I went, trying to undo years of cat hair, dust, and debris.
End result: An amazingly tidy and neat basement! With the extra space, I tried to organize (quickly) what was left.
I felt SO much better afterwards. You will, too!
What are some items you would suggest cleaning out of a basement?
