Do you have stuff everywhere? Are you constantly looking for an uncluttered spot to work? If you answered yes to either of these, your home may be trying to tell you something. After living for years in the same house packed with knick-knacks and bric-a-brac, we often no longer notice the clutter around us. If this sounds like you, it’s time to tackle the clutter and organize your life!

Here are five telltale signs that it’s time to declutter your home.

1. You feel like acquiring more storage will solve your problem

Take our word for it, leasing another storage unit is not the answer to your clutter problem. If you’ve run out of space at your home — and at your storage unit — it’s time to take a hard look at your stuff, and eliminate things you don’t need. It may be worth hiring a professional company to help you get organized. Whatever you do, resist the temptation to acquire more storage!

2. You can’t ever find what you’re looking for

If it takes you more than a few minutes to find something in your home, it’s time to organize. This means doing some soul-searching. Don’t make excuses. Don’t look at your stuff and tell yourself you’ll use it someday or that it has too much sentimental value to part with. If you’re having trouble finding what you’re looking for, it’s time to purge your home of clutter.

3. Your junk drawers are full of “junk”

Every home has a junk drawer, and that’s okay. But if you have several junk drawers, all filled to the brim, you may need to address the problem. Chances are a lot of the items cluttering up these drawers can be trashed or donated. Let us help you “de-junk” your junk drawers as part of a whole-house decluttering plan.

4. You feel embarrassed by the appearance of your home

Does the thought of other people seeing the hodgepodge of stuff cluttering your home make you cringe? Then it’s time to clean and organize. Start by eliminating anything you haven’t touched in more than two years and work from there. At koik, we understand this isn’t always easy, and we’re here to lend a hand. If you want to rid your home of clutter, let us help!

5. You buy shelves, chests, or other organizers for your stuff

While clever storage options can be helpful, cramming your home with metal utility shelves or chests of drawers just so you can have more stuff is not. At koik we often see people deal with their clutter by purchasing more ways to organize that clutter. We can help you avoid this common mistake by assessing your situation and offering a tailored clean-up solution. Buying more shelves is not the answer!
