How To Declutter Your Entertainment Center

use this Pin it button to save to Pinterest

Today's mission is to declutter your entertainment center and/or whatever room you keep much of your media and games in.

This mission is designed to be done while we work on the CD & DVD Organization and Storage Challenge, which is part of the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge here on the site.

However, it occurs to me it would also be suitable to do when working on the Organize Living & Family Room Challenge or even the Organize Toys & Games Challenge, depending on what types of items you keep within your entertainment center.

Suffice it to say, you do this mission whenever you need!

Further, depending on how much stuff you've got filling up your entertainment center this mission may take a little amount of time, or a lot.

Make sure to work on it in fifteen minute intervals to keep yourself from getting overwhelmed or taking too much on at once. If you need, work on one shelf or cabinet at a time.

The instructions for this mission are a bit amorphous because I've found that just about everyone has something different in these pieces of furniture.

Whatever is in there though, make sure you clear out trash, remove items that don't belong, and get rid of things that you've not even used for a long time.

Common items that you may find in an entertainment center may already have their own Declutter 365 mission (some with accompanying articles). These can include:I'd love to hear what types of items you've got inside your entertainment center, so tell me in the comments below.

If you've got time once you declutter this space you can organize what's left in there a bit and tidy up.

Also, this may be the time to tackle some of the cords and wires around your TV and other electronics to make them look more presentable instead of a crazy mess.

Before & After Photos When Decluttered Entertainment Room

Seeing what other readers and participants in the Declutter 365 missions have done can be helpful to give you an idea of what you can do for yourself, and to get you inspired.

Here's a series of photos, above, sent in by a reader, Julie, who already did this mission.

Julie said of the before photos, "This is the current disaster room that I am working on. Yikes! This is one of our rooms that rarely ever gets messy or unorganized but my SIL gave us a ton of extra movies so they are all lying around in totes and boxes. I'm over this mess! Diggin in!"

Then, of the after photos she said, "I have finally reclaimed my entertainment room! Whew! All movies are put away, alphabetized, and all VHS are in protective plastic cases. Everything we don't want is boxed up in the car going either to nieces and nephew or being sold/donated. Yay!!!"

Great job Julie! There's a marked difference between the before and after photos! You did well!

Once you declutter one type of item in your home I bet you'll want to declutter some more. After all, decluttering gives you a great reward for even a small investment of time and energy.

The Declutter 365 system is designed to help you declutter, over the course of a year, your entire house, with just 15 minutes of decluttering each day!

Hundreds of thousands of people use this proven system to get rid of their clutter, and bring peace and calm back to their homes.

Declutter 365 works to guide you to clear the clutter without overwhelm, focusing on just one small area at a time, and without making a huge mess in the process, so you see consistent forward progress without all that "messy middle" that makes it even harder to function in your home than before you started.

In addition to building a daily decluttering habit, the Declutter 365 program, along with the accompanying 52 Week Organized Home Challenge, teaches you the skills, habits, routines, and mindsets necessary to maintain the clutter free and organized state of your home from now on, so it'll never be as messy and cluttered as it is right now, ever again.
