Restyle Your Life Challenge Day 17: Declutter Your Home

Posted by   + Show Post

When you have kids sometimes having a clean house seems like an uphill battle. Little pockets of stuff seem to collect all over the place! Today's challenge is to declutter - or at least hide it better!

Try adding decorative baskets or shelving to hide clutter in your house. Put toys or books in bins that can be hidden in a closet when they are not being used.


What's the most cluttered area in your house? Share your tips for keeping your house organized.

Living room.  As we pack (I mean I) to move I am weeding stuff out.  Clutter happens more easily when you have too much stuff.

I've made the most progress weeding out stuff from my wardrobe.  The next is kitchen stuff.  These are the two areas where SO has the least input.

I don't like clutter, it makes me feel like my space is being invaded. All items have to fit in a spacce that is unseen if not in use.

Quoting Bmat:

My closet is the most cluttered area. I toss things I buy for Christmas gifts in there, and this time of year it is getting overwhelming.  My best tip is to invite company over, it makes you clean your house, although it won't help with closets, especially if you tuck the stuff in those.

I completely agree with this tip! Impending company helps whip my house into shape every time...LOL

 My bedroom is the most cluttered and it needs a serious clean and an extreme de-clutter! Hoyly cow but it really is the catch all for everyone of us. lol My hubby even re-make the computers in there and leaves the parts laying all over.  *sighs*  :)

The dining room table lol. I try to declutter daily because everything just gets piled.

We are working on getting rid of clutter. Trying to sell my sons crib, so we can move toys out of living room to their room. My younger DS is now capable of walking up and down stairs without help, so upstairs they will go :)
