How to declutter your house in one day

Divide & conquer

Many hands make light work and it may be time to call in some favours and get help with the urgent decluttering job you have. The more rooms you can divide up between your friends or a family member, the quicker you will clean up the house and sort the clutter in your home.


If you cannot find anyone to help you declutter your house in one day, do not stress! Divide the rooms or areas of the house into sections and conquer one section at a time, room by room. This will avoid the house becoming a mess, you feeling overwhelmed and will keep your declutter process organised. A great way to do this is to use our decluttering checklist.

Be decisive with disposal, donate & keep

Do not second-guess yourself. While you sort items, if you think it should go, do not hesitate. Throw it away. If you haven’t used it for a while or it is gathering dust, then consider donating it. If you forgot you even had it but you remember the item fondly, donate it. If it was so important it wouldn’t have been locked away or forgotten in the first place, or if it does not add value to your life then discard it.

You’ll feel so much better that when you turn to look at your clutter-free home at the end of the day at how amazing, spacious and clean it looks you’ll forget about everything you have thrown away. No regrets.

Remember, when discarding your items, make sure you’re using the correct bin for each waste type, if you’ve got a lot of different types of wastes, consider hiring a mixed waste skip bin to help organise your waste management.

Start big & work your way down

Begin by tackling the room in your home that requires the most attention. Throw out the largest pieces of clutter or junk first and simply work your way down, hiring a skip bin can help dispose of the larger items. Then move to the next room. Rinse and repeat, one room at a time.

This strategy will not only clear your home quickly because clearing out the biggest items or the most cluttered rooms will make the biggest visual impact, but it works with your personal motivation and energy levels.
