The beginning of the year is the perfect time to declutter your home. 

Decluttering or removing things you do not need from your space comes with a lot of benefits. 

First of all, it goes without saying that when you declutter your house, you make room for new things that you will need in the new year. 

A crowded house can also make you feel that you need a bigger house/space, which might not necessarily be true. Getting rid of things that you hardly use can make your home feel more pleasant and expose the space that you have. 

A crowded space can affect your state of mind. By freeing up space, you can improve your state of mind and de-stress. Decluttering can help you feel more relaxed after the job is done and everything is nicely packed and in order. 

Another benefit of decluttering is that once your space has been freed up, you can find it easier to locate items. 

Decluttering helps you take control of your space. 

It also helps reduce the risk of feeling overwhelmed.

One of the benefits of decluttering is that you can recycle or donate some of the things that you hardly use to people who would use them.

As the year is starting, give yourself time and create a de-cluttering list then take it one day at a time until you are done removing all the things you do not need.
