We often don't even notice how much clutter we accumulate over the years and even months of living in an apartment. Things that used to be important to us become unnecessary over time.

Therefore, it is necessary to regularly declutter your home, and the "five-pile rule" can help with that. OBOZREVATEL has thoroughly analyzed this approach.

This method will not only help you take control of your home but also develop your decision-making skills. This simple method will streamline the organization process, and you will truly appreciate the value and purpose of things.

First, choose a room or a specific area that you want to declutter. Then prepare five boxes with labels: "keep", "give away", "sell", "throw away" and "maybe". When choosing an item, ask yourself if you really need it or if you use it often. Based on your answers, choose the appropriate box.

The "sell" box shouldn't be a problem because it's easy to find a new owner for things online nowadays. But you might get too carried away and start selling everything that comes to hand. So be responsible for your goal.

The box labeled "maybe" is for things you are not ready to part with yet. After a certain period of time, you will understand exactly whether you need them.

The "keep" box is suitable for useful things that you need, the "give away" box can be donated to charity, and the "throw away" box is for getting rid of junk as soon as possible.

To avoid repeated accumulation of things, include the "five-pile rule" in your daily schedule. Also, don't forget about this method when you buy new things. Over time, this practice will become an integral part of organizing your space.
