7 Best Storage Solutions for Decluttering Your Home in 2022

It’s a new year! Like most people, you’re probably looking forward to a lot of things this year. Setting your goals might be quite challenging at this time but one thing’s for sure, you’ll probably have a hard time if you don’t have a system in place. Where do I start, you ask? 

Here at Joejis, we believe everything starts at home. And whether or not you keep everything organised, we all know everyone has a bit of clutter in a room or two. Although this is normal, disorganisation has many downsides. It can trigger stress, make you unproductive and inefficient.

Studies show that decluttering can promote productivity and improvements in mental and physical health. It helps you have better focus, higher self-esteem, and have an improved lifestyle and well-being.

How to start decluttering

Before getting started with decluttering, it’s important to have a plan. Set a timeline and goals that are achievable with your schedule. First, think about the places you want to tackle. Create a priority list and tackle one space at a time. Set a deadline and stick to it. Plan out a decluttering schedule so you don’t have to rush. 


Realistically, decluttering room-by-room depends on its size and the number of items you have in each. It's important to know that it's normal to be overwhelmed. When this happens,Laura Kinsella, a Professional Organizer, advised to always remember that "decluttering is all about honoring who we are in the now" and "letting go of anything that doesn't reflect our current wants or needs."

The 4-Box Method

To speed up your decluttering process, try the4 Box Method. All you need to have are 4 boxes. Assign a “Keep Box” to put in items that are used on a daily or weekly basis and just need to be put away in their proper spot, a “Donate/Sell Box,” a “Toss Box,” and a “Storage Box” where you put in items you can’t let go but don’t use on a regular basis (for example, seasonal decor or clothing). Label them each accordingly.


Organising after decluttering

After sending the items from the Toss Box to the bin, selling or donating some of your stuff, and emptying your Keep Box by putting all the items in their designated locations, it’s time to focus on your long-term storage items.


When storing items for a long time, it’s important to sort and label them properly. Store items that you use only once a year in separate boxes or bags from items you switch out multiple times a year.

One essential product you need after decluttering is storage bags. Doesn’t matter if you use boxes or large garbage bags but if you’re planning to store items for a long time, it would be best to store them in bags.

To keep everything in place and organised, invest in space-saving solutions for your home. You’ve spent a ton of time decluttering and reorganising your home so don’t end up wasting your efforts just by randomly storing everything. This may make you feel like your house doesn’t look any neater.

Having aHanging Mug Shelf Holder can free up valuable space in your cabinets. This time, you don’t need to stack mugs and worry about breaking them. You can also level up your coffee corner with it.

What’s next

Now that you know the “Why” and the “How-To” for decluttering, let’s move on to the “When.” When you are supposedly “finished”; you’ve de-cluttered and implemented new routines to make life simpler, and when you’re done dealing with much of your clutter, just keep going. Be more conscious of the items you buy so you don’t end up storing items you don’t use, inform everyone in the house regarding the new organising system, and declutter regularly. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy a more organised and cleaner home.
