6 Ways to Declutter & Dominate 2022


Clear the way for your best year yet with these six tips to help you declutter and dominate 2022.

Live to the Max With a Minimalist Lifestyle

Less stuff. Less stress. More freedom. Decluttering can free you up to focus more on the things you love in life. Whether that’s more time on the ski slopes or more time on the mountain bike trail is up to you. Less stuff also means less upkeep and a cleaner, more organized space – and studies have shown an orderly environment can do wonders for your mental health. Embrace minimalism and live life to the max. 

Keep It Small. Make It Fun.

You’re busy living an adventure-filled life. As you embark on your decluttering journey, don’t try to do everything at once. Take it a step at a time, focusing on achievable goals. If it helps, map out what you hope to accomplish with a calendar or list. Take it one room, one closet, one weekend at a time – whatever works for you. Also, be sure to keep it fun by celebrating your wins along the way! That way it’ll seem less like a chore and more like an adventure.

Don’t Procrastinate

No matter the journey, the first step is always the hardest. As you conceptualize your decluttering plan, don’t procrastinate. Take that first step as soon as you can – even if it’s a small one. After all, the longer you put off decluttering, the less time you’ll have to dominate 2022.

Keep the Mission Clear

Know exactly what you hope to accomplish by decluttering. Want to level up your work-from-home space? Clearing room for a new home gym? Ready to master a new sport? To truly dominate 2022, have set goals in mind. If nothing else, it will provide you with the inspirational fuel you need to get the job done.

Be Strategic

The decluttering process will surely require a lot of hard decisions, including getting rid of a lot of stuff. As you go, don’t get rid of things for the sake of getting rid of things. That’s a formula you might end up regretting. Give yourself time to think through your decisions. When in doubt, enlist a friend’s help to decide what to part with. They’re not as emotionally invested and can offer an objective take.

Help Yourself. Help Others.

Now that you have a huge pile of stuff you’re ready to part ways with, start contemplating where to send it. Donating to a local charity is always an awesome option. Giving your stuff new life by giving it to friends or family members is another great idea.
