How to declutter your house one month at a time with free monthly organization printables on The Typical Mom! One room at a time is the key to success.
This is how to declutter your house one month at a time with our free printable monthly organization checklist seen here! It’s the final monthly purge checklist provided to you on The Typical Mom, they are all found on our organization printables page. (affiliate links present, originally published 11/17)
I have one for each month, this is for December. We’re focusing on the garage, holiday decorations and the kids’ rooms too this time.
I started all of this a few years ago when I created this January purge checklist. Everyone raved about and asked me to create one for every month of the year….thus, here we are in December. It’s not too late though you can print all of them on my organization printables page so no worries.
As I’ve stated before, it is much easier to focus on a few rooms in your house each month. That way you can really purge and clean them instead of tackling the whole house all at once.
I know I don’t do well with an overwhelming task. So I decided to create organization printables for each month that tackle just a few areas of your home.

- Here is the entire eBook of monthly cleaning schedule printables too
If you’re ready to do some more here are some garage organization ideas. It’s a great way to stay purging that overwhelming area!
If you missed the other months you can find them on our organization printables page. I suggest making a home organization binder with each month inside a sheet protector.
Then you can check off each item with a wet erase marker. Wipe it clean when you’re done, and then use them over and over each year!
Let me explain a few items on our list of how to declutter your house:
- Replace cardboard boxes with plastic bins – specifically I am referring to boxes full of ornaments and your tree as well.
- We replaced our old cardboard boxes with these plastic ornament boxes years ago. It prevents a lot of breakage and it is so much easier to put them away!
We also bought this Christmas tree storage bag with wheels and it has been so much easier too.
- Rotate toys – before Christmas arrives is the perfect time to rotate toys!! I show you how to rotate toys here in this post.
While you’re rotating you can bag up toys they have outgrown and purge those too….two benefits in one!
- Bag puzzle pieces – my kids are more likely to do puzzles if they’re all in one place and organized well. The easiest way I’ve done this with puzzles is take them out of the boxes. Put them into a large freezer bag.
Then I cut the picture of what the puzzle should look like. Put that in the bag with the pcs. and zip it up. They can grab it and go, zip it back and pcs. get lost a lot less often!
