Spring Cleaning Decluttering Tips {Video}

It's time for spring cleaning! But the very thought of cleaning can be overwhelming to many of us.

Maybe it's because we can't vacuum our floors until we pick up all the clothing on them first. Or perhaps you can't motivate yourself to dust because you know every surface in your home is covered with piles of stuff that you'd have to deal with. It might be that you are afraid to open that closet or cabinet door because you've been stuffing things in there all winter and you're worried it will all fall out.

Tired of all the clutter that's built up over the winter? Want to clear it out so you can free up your time and energy to enjoy the nicer weather and all the fun activities it brings with it?

If any of this sounds familiar, then it's time to declutter! Overwhelmed? I'm sharing tips today to help you get started :)

Video Decluttering Tips

I had the opportunity to share several decluttering tips on Kitty Talk this week. This is a talk show for South Asian women in Canada and this is my 3rd appearance.

In my first segment I share several tips for where to get started, how to involve your kids and the rest of your family in decluttering, general guidelines for decluttering, and what's new in the world of decluttering.

In my second segment I demonstrate some simple ways to declutter so you can see it doesn't have to take a long time.  I also share some ways to stay organized so clutter doesn't build up.

{By the way, those are my daughter's drawers in the video ... she's excited because her clothes are "famous" LOL!}

If you'd like more decluttering ideas, you can check out the Decluttering tab above for more decluttering posts / series / challenges. You can also take a look at my Decluttering/Purging Tips & Ideas board on Pinterest.

Which tip do you think will help you declutter the most? Where will you start your spring decluttering?

 Happy decluttering and organizing!


  1. Great tips, Hilda! And you look so good and comfortable. I especially like how to involve your entire family. :)

  2. Great tips. I really need to get started on my decluttering and clearing up with a baby on the way. I am beyond overwhelmed right now and I don't think it would get better as it gets later. Haha @ your daughter. Her clothes are famous now

  3. You are a natural on screen - so relaxed! Love how you have the donate bin lined with a plastic bag... makes it easy to "grab and go" to the charity!

  4. The hanger trick is awesome! I like to do this when the closet is jammed pack with stuff to easily weed things out. I don't wait till the end of the season, I like to do it within a month of hanging it. =) Thanks for sharing.

  5. Great job Hilda! Amazing tips and amazing tv presence :)

  6. Great job Hilda! You are a natural on TV :) Love the dual label tip - I'd never thought about that before. Thanks for the tip!

  7. Wow brilliant tips Hilda! Thank you. I read 'Spark Joy' about a year ago and did start decluttering slowly and have changed the way I fold clothes, however I started a business recently so have been pretty busy. But I am still slowly going through each room and decluttering. This was such a good reminder and I love the winter/Summer Gear box tips! I will definitely be implementing these. Thanks again!
