While spring cleaning gets all the glory, here at The Spruce, we believe in consistent decluttering sessions. It’s much easier to keep on top of clutter with regular cleanouts, and this is especially true if your primary goal is to maintain a minimalist aesthetic at home.

We turned to a few of our favorite designers and home decor pros to find out which minimalist principles are best for anyone looking to do a major declutter—and their top tip was the same across the board.
As it turns out, the overwhelming advice can be boiled down to one key phrase: have a plan. Decluttering can feel like a huge task without one, but if you follow a few key tips, it's really much more manageable than it sounds.
