I always like to begin the new year by doing an entire sweep of my house. Not only do I want everything to be sparkling clean, but I also want to say goodbye to clutter. However, this can feel super overwhelming, and it can be difficult to know where to start. If you’re in a similar situation, let us introduce you to the 1-Day Dump method.

Liz of Love + Marriage explains that while this method may be unconventional, it’s the quickest and least stressful way to rid your home of clutter. In each area of your home that needs to be decluttered (which could very well be every room), Liz explains that you take everything and dump it into a bin.

When we say everything, we mean almost everything. With the exception of furniture and the essentials (your toothbrush, toaster, TV remote, etc.), pack everything into bins. You’re not throwing this stuff out, so don’t panic. Label each bin with the room that the stuff came from, and store it in your basement.

The logic behind this method is that once you’ve cleared absolutely everything out of a room, you can slowly begin to realize what’s a necessity, and take it out of the bin. However, chances are you won’t miss the majority of what’s in those bins, and that’s when it’s time to donate all that extra stuff. So if you’re really looking to tackle your home’s clutter, the 1-Day Dump might just be the perfect place to start!
