Today we will be decluttering & organizing pets items (if you don’t have any pets consider it a day to just relax) in my home I have two pet zones (cat food zone & cat fun zone).
Items you will need
Notebook/pen- To make shopping list
Food/ water bowls
Walking items (leash, harness, collars)
Baskets or bins – 1 to hold toys, 1 to hold walking items & one to hold food
Phone/Clock – To set 10 minute timer
Steps to declutter pet items
Step 1- have all items handy
Step 2- Set timer for 10 minutes
Step 3- Declutter
- Check over each toy (anything torn/destroyed= garbage; anything your pet does not play with= donate to animal shelter or vet office) whatever is left should be placed in a storage item (I use a wicker basket)
- Choose a storage method for your pet’s food. I use clear plastic containers to hold cat food, my mom & sister both have garbage cans filled with dry dog food. Set up an area with the dishes & food storage.
- Check over walking items (leashes, harnesses, collars) throw out any damaged & donate any you don’t use. Store the remaining in an organized fashion somewhere near the door
- Look over other pet items (blankets, beds etc.) if it is damaged= repair or garbage; if it’s never used donate to a shelter or vet office or choose a pet zone to keep those things in near the toy storage)
Step 4- List: Create a shopping list of any pet items you need (new leash, more food, treats, new toys etc.)
How do you organize your pet items?
