People trip over stuff lying around on the floor. It may be items of clutter, it may be magazines, old newspapers, the children’s toys or play things. Whatever the item is in question, you’ll need to remove the culprit off the floor.

Scan the floor of your room and take 5 minutes to remove any clutter off the floor. If its rubbish or junk, then place these items straight in the bin for disposal.

Tip No 2: Vacuum It

The next thing you’ll need to do is to give the floor a quick vacuum. Spend another 5 minutes to remove any dust and dirt off the floor by giving it a thorough vacuum. Vacuum the edges of the room to remove dust caught in any crevices.

If you have floorboards, give your floors a quick sweep using a brush and pan, or use a good micro fiber mop which is effective for picking up dust and dirt.

Tip No 3: Remove It

With 5 minutes left to go, you’ll want to remove any clutter off any other surfaces. If you are in the living room, then reduce any clutter off your lounge table. If you are in your home office, reduce any clutter by removing loose papers from your office desk. If you are decluttering your kitchen, reduce any clutter by removing large items such as kitchen appliances off your countertops.

That’s it – you’re are finished with your decluttering for today. Hope you have enjoyed this article on how to declutter your room in 15 minutes flat!
