For this quick Declutter 365 mission I'd like for you to go through each room of your home looking for rugs you no longer want to keep.

Some of the rooms to definitely look through include:
Obviously, as always, I'm not suggesting you get rid of all rugs, but instead today focus on getting rid of those that are not in good condition, that you are always tripping over, or that you don't like or don't match your decor.

We often forget the stuff underneath our feet when decluttering, so that's why I've included this mission within the Declutter 365 calendar.

Once you've identified the rugs you will keep, make sure to check out the tips below to keep those floor mats and rugs safer for everyone in your family.

Make Sure All Your Rugs Have No Slip Mats Underneath Them

Make sure you keep your family and guests safety in mind and add no slip mats underneath all your rugs to lessen the possibility of the rugs sliding or pulling up, and becoming a tripping hazard {featured on Home Storage Solutions 101}Super Grip Non Slip Rug Pad

As I mentioned above, the assignment for the day is not to get rid of every single rug you own in your home, so it stands to reason at the end you'll still have some rugs left that you plan to continue to use.

For those rugs, make sure today that you also properly secure them to the floor, such as by adding no slip mats under them.

This is especially important if they seem to slide or pull up and cause a tripping hazard. Safety is important!
