Declutter Your Home and Mind For the New Year

new year - fire works

How do you declutter your home and your mind for the new year?  Do you have any new goals? We all say let’s start fresh, new beginnings and a better year. For sure we need a better year. Covid-19 put a stop to everyone’s lives for some time! It is important to set goals for everything in life to keep you focused and on track. Set new ones and re-adjust your current goals for the upcoming year.


Here are some ideas to help you get organized and goal orientated for the new year.  To start, I like to declutter my home.  I put my Christmas decorations away and reorganize my home, pre holiday decor.  I then go into each closet in my home and collect anything that has not been used in 6-12 months.  It could also be something like a sweater that is being replaced by a new one.  I collect everything from toys, clothes, shoes, sheets, etc. and schedule a pick up from my local charity donation center.  By doing so, I am helping those in need and making room for new things I may purchase this year! I top it off with a new candle to give a nice new scent. Perfect; now my home is clean! HERE you can find my cleaning schedule.

By decluttering my home, I am also decluttering my mind. A clean space and no clutter keeps my mind relaxed and ready for anything!

Write Down Your Goals

Next I write down all my goals for the coming year.  Now that the holidays are over I start to eat healthier.  Yes,  I know Valentine’s Day is around the corner.  All the stores have all the candy out now. Unbelievable right! Eating healthy keeps me feeling energized and happy.

Stay Organized

Re-adjust your current goals and be more realistic about them.  Break down your goals step by step, to reach the bigger goal.

What are your goals?

  • Write your goals in a journal
  • Start a bullet journal or new planner to keep organized
  • Focus on 3 goals and break them down
  • What do you want this year?
  • What changes would you like to make?

I hope these steps help you declutter your home and mind for the new year! STAY POSITIVE AND FOCUSED THIS NEW YEAR!

Have a Safe and Happy New Year!
