After using this method, you will feel as if you have moved into a new home

It's been scientifically proven that we are most productive when we feel a little pressure, a little stress due to rushing, and a tight deadline. You've probably noticed how focused you become when you're facing another deadline.

The same principle can be applied to cleaning your home, according to cleaning experts. They suggest adopting it when you need to get rid of clutter effectively. This method is called the "move-out method". OBOZ.UA explains what it consists of.

The main thing that this approach gives is a sense of purpose. You are not cleaning for the sake of cleaning but literally as if you are preparing to move.

Set yourself a "move-out" date and start packing. Get the number of boxes you need. Pull all the things out of the cabinets and shelves and sort them out, asking yourself if you should take this item with you to the new place. Is it worth paying for its transportation? If the answer is no, put this item in a separate box. Sort the rest of your belongings into groups and label them. Next, wipe the dust everywhere, wash the floor and windows, and wash the textiles. At this stage, you are ready to "move out".

If you want, let things stand in this form for a few days. During this time, take a closer look at what you take out to use: these are definitely the things you need. Afterwards, go through everything again as you may want to get rid of even more stuff.

When all the preparations are complete, move into your new space. Take out everything you decided to keep and put it back in its place. Start giving away or selling the rest on online flea markets. Many items can be donated, so look for such options as well.

If you're intimidated by the prospect of collecting everything in your home in one go, start with one small room. You will like the result so much that you will be happy to continue in other rooms.
