Desk Declutter | Crush the Chaos

Welcome to another new series here on my blog, Crush the Chaos. This series will feature me going through my home and other areas of my life, organizing and implementing systems that I can keep up with. Plus, I’ll share my top tips along the way.

One of the key problems you may come across when you declutter is that you don’t know where to start, you get too overwhelmed, or you can’t get rid of certain items because of some sentimental value. Then when it comes to organizing, it’s a whole other ballgame. Sometimes we over organize and think that a container solves everything, but that’s not the case.

This first is my desk declutter. As always be sure to click the highlighted links throughout this post for related posts and links to purchase items/similar styles featured.

Bedroom Revamp | Dresser Trash to Treasure

It’s that time of year again where I start sprucing up my office, bedroom, or some other place in my home. My bedroom especially is one place that needs to, at all times, be top notch. It’s where you sleep and you don’t want to sleep in a mess. Sleeping in a mess can easily throw off your mood. I also need it to be functional. In other words, I need easy access to everything. It’s ok to tuck some things away, but for the most part, I need everything at my finger tips.

Declutter 101: Pantry

Welcome to the final installment of my declutter series. I’ve been cleaning out my home the entire month of January and it’s been great to let go of items that I no longer use. I look back at what I gave away and a lot of it was purchased on impulse or I just kept it for some sentimental reason. I found that in downsizing that I can actually make use of what I have and if I choose to add, I have space. Check out my previous installments below:

Declutter 101: Car Organization Tips

I spend around 2 hours a day in my car commuting to and from work. My car can become a dumping ground from receipts, to loose change everywhere, and a closet in my trunk. Why take it inside when I have the space? Who cares if my back seat has the scarf and flats I meant to take in a week ago? Yes, those candy wrappers are still there.

Declutter 101: Closet

My closet is one area that is constantly being downsized as I continuously donate what I no longer use. I have purchased clothing from pressure shopping with friends or from watching countless YouTube hauls. I would buy based off trend instead of staple pieces that I could mix and match and get the most out of my wardrobe. First, check out the other parts of this Declutter 101 series below:

Declutter 101: Inexpensive Organization

To have an organized life you should not pursue perfection since perfection is flawed. Becoming organized permits you to function more effectively with the ultimate goal of having time to pursue your passion.

Declutter 101: Nail Polish

Welcome to another edition of my ‘Declutter 101’ series. My first installment was decluttering my fragrances and while I wanted to combine all go my beauty together into one post, I felt that separating them would be more be more beneficial. I hoard in different areas more so than others based off various reasons. I hoarded fragrances just to have them on hand always making an excuse of what I’d do with the scents I didn’t like. Then there’s my nail polish, which will be covered in this post, that I have been dwindling down for years. Check out my two previous collections below:
