If you’re currently in the market for a Pittsburgh on your lot builder to build your new home, chances are you’re looking at your current home and wondering how you’ve accumulated so much stuff since moving in. Moving is generally a time where people de-clutter in hopes to start off life in their new home, with a fresh slate. Parry Custom homes shares some tips on the top things people can get rid of that will de-clutter their home.
One of the first things you can get rid of and find in most any home? Coffee mugs and lots of them. In most homes, there might be one or two coffee drinkers. However, if you look in most cabinets, you can find one if not two shelves full of coffee mugs. Unless you have a large family of mug users, chances are you can cut that number down to a fraction of what you have and get along just the same.
Keeping that thought in mind, think of any and all repeat items you have more than one or two of. Do you need multiple of that item? If the answer is no, toss the extras.
CDs and DVDs are something that most any home has plenty of, yet they never get used. Keep the ones that you will actually listen to or watch again, and get rid of the rest. Most people are so dependent on Netflix that even their CD and DVD players could go as well!
Reusable shopping bags are another item that are generally overflowing in the cabinets of many homeowners. In reality, a handful is all you need. Especially if you make weekly grocery trips where you can always get more.
Other things that can quickly turn from a few of your favorites to clutter are books. Donate unused books to bookstores or schools and have them be put to good use, rather than collecting dust on your shelves.
Vases are another item that over time can become a cabinet full of useless items. Keep any that are sentimental to you and toss the rest.
For dishware, have enough for a week and get rid of the rest or put it in storage where you can access it later, if needed. There is no need to have more than you will use in a week’s time, in your cabinet. Plus, it is a good reminder of when to do the dishes!
Hopefully these tips will help de-clutter your home and give you a fresh start when moving into a new one. Be sure to contact Parry Custom Homes for the best partner to build your new home in Pittsburgh!
