  • 41% of people say that clutter makes them feel stressed

  • 20% of UK adults say that what stops them from decluttering is being unsure of how to get rid of everything

Dilly comments:

“I firmly believe that if we all cut the clutter, live better with less and give ourselves more headspace, we will enjoy life more, which is why I’m delighted to collaborate with HIPPO and their genius HIPPOBAGs in encouraging more of us to get decluttering this Spring!

These are my Top Declutter Tips to help everyone along with the decluttering!:

1.We need to get those rooms aired and let our wardrobes and drawers breathe. Give them a good declutter and clear-out.

Moths love dark spots, so as much as you can, get those doors open and get the air circulating through every area.

Clean the bottoms, clear out those wardrobes and give them a good declutter.

Ask yourself this:

- Do you love it?
- Does it fit?
- When did you last wear it?
- Is it in season?
- Can it be packed away to create space?

2. Clear those window sills.

So many of us have too much on our window sills We want to let the light in, and see out of those windows. Not block the light.

Clear those window sills completely, and see how much better it looks with less clutter on it.

Now it’s empty and clean, what would you put back, what can be moved?

3. Declutter that worktop.

Clear every appliance off the side and put it to the side and see how much space you have now it’s clear.

- What do you really need to add back to that workspace?
- Are there items that don’t earn a spot on that worktop?
- Are there items you don’t use?
- Are there items that don’t belong in a kitchen?

We want clear workspaces with less clutter. So it’s easier to maintain and keep clean.

Less stuff, less to clean!

4. Clean out your cupboards.

One cupboard at a time so as not to overwhelm yourself. Just empty, clean, assess, declutter, donate, sell or put it back!

Just cleaning out your cutlery drawer and putting everything through the dishwasher will make you feel better.

Get rid of those tools, pens and keys. Keep it just cutlery, take out the random.

Go through your spice drawer and check dates. Clean it out. Organise spices in alphabetical order so it’s easy to scan quickly what you need.

5. Get rid of your unwanted items for good.

There’s no excuse for holding onto your clutter when there are so many ways to get rid of it in an eco-friendly way.

There are loads of different apps, social sites and websites where you can post your unwanted items and actually make money out of your things, if you don’t feel like passing them on for free.

And, if your unwanted bits aren’t in a good state or you haven’t got time to sort through them then HIPPOBAGs are a brilliant solution!

Easy ordering online or via the app are the No.1 alternative to traditional skips.

Once you’ve filled your bag, HIPPO will take it away, contact-free, with over 95% of all waste we collect diverted from landfill, recycled wherever possible and the rest disposed of ethically.
