Let Goodwill Help with your New Year’s Resolutions

A new year is almost upon us, and many of us are busy making resolutions and setting goals for 2020. If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to finally declutter and organize your home, Goodwill is here to help!

The new year is a time for a fresh start, so why not use this opportunity to make your home a more beautiful, clean, and clutter-free place to live? Here are some great reasons to declutter your home, and how Goodwill can help you make it happen:

Reduce stress

Clutter doesn’t just overwhelm our homes; it can also overwhelm our minds. Psychology Today states that too much clutter can cause our senses to work overtime, making it difficult to relax, both physically and mentally. If you want to stress less in the new year, decluttering is the first place to start!

Save time

Think of all the time you spend trying to find misplaced items like keys or documents. When you’re surrounded by too much stuff, it’s difficult to find ” lost” belongings, even when they’re right in front of you. When you declutter your home and get organized, you’ll ensure that there’s a place for everything and everything’s in its place. It’s a wonderful feeling when you know exactly where to find the things you need instead of wasting time and effort searching for them!

Free up more space

The less stuff you have, the less space you need to store it! If you’re thinking about downsizing to a smaller home in the near future, the beginning of the new year is a perfect time to get your home in ship-shape. Decluttering an entire home will take a while, so it’s best to tackle it in stages. Focus on one room at a time, identifying what you want to keep, toss, or donate. We recommend keeping a box in the corner of each room or closet for items you don’t want or don’t need anymore. When the box is full, it’s time to donate!
