4 Tips to Start your Home Decluttering Journey


I’m 29 weeks pregnant amigas ! 😱🙌🏼 Just starting my 3rd trimester 🥰 and I am so happy and proud to say that my HOME HAS BEEN FULLY DECLUTTERED 😆🙌🏼 If you have been following me on insta @thekarenstyle - then you know that I spent all 3 months of my second trimester DECLUTTERING, re- decorating, throwing stuff out, donating and selling stuff 😂 I call it “HOME EDITING” 🙌🏼
🏡Its been a dream of mine to have one of those Reality Stars (khloe kardash) EXTRA ORGANIZED beautiful+visual looking Home (cabinets + drawers) and just having a system where absolutely every item in my house has a “home/station” to return to.
It hasn’t been easy 😫 it’s been a looooong 3 months, sloooooow process, Im pregnant + have a one year old that started walking in my second trimester 🥵😆🥰🙌🏼 + had to “move out my husband from his home office so I could transform it into Kari’s new toddler room 😆💕🙌🏼 !! (and well ! I had to ask for help from mom, sister and bestie to come and help me out every now and then, I also hired a handyman 👨‍🔧 to help with out garage flooring + movie room transformation, carry heavy stuff out of rooms and well ! Let’s just say this process has been a TEAM EFFORT !)

🤰🏻+👧🏻 Hopefully I can inspire you to start this journey because if I was able to do it so can you ! 🥰 NO EXCUSES 🙌🏼


👶🏻Anyway, I am so happy to finally graduate from Home Editing and move on to Nursing Stage (decorate Baby Kristov’s room + Buy his Clothes) and pretty much enjoy my last two months of pregnancy 🤰🏻 and enjoy Kari been an only child 👧🏻 and enjoy SUMMER ☀️ In beautiful San Diego 🥰🙌🏼

3 TIPS TO START YOUR HOME DECLUTTERING JOURNEY TODAY! :

1.- Categorize your home into different rooms and spaces. IE: “My Kitchen” “My Patio” “My Master Closet”  “My Master Room” “My Master Bathroom” etc..
2.- Start a phone list 📝 if all items needed to declutter from your different Home Categories (spaces). IE: under “My Kitchen” list, I added: -Need to declutter Pantry - Need to declutter Fridge - Need to declutter under sink cabinets - Need to declutter island cabinets… ETC ! This is a GOALS LIST that will guide you on which project you have to do next!

 

3.- Buy a Label Maker + Storage Containers + Large Trash Bags (to throw things out) + Medium size cardboard boxes (to add all your donations) HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITES ON AMAZON 
4.- Start decluttering by category (space) don't get frustrated! Watch a decluttering vlog on YouTube or watch the Home Edit on Netflix to keep yourself motivated 🙌🏼 Go off your mobile list, finish one task per space then move to the next one! It doesn’t matter how long you take what matters is that you have started this release phase in your life 🙌🏼
