Spring Cleaning for Transplant Families: Organize and Declutter


Organizing and decluttering post-transplant life can be incredibly beneficial for both

physical and mental well-being. Here are some tips to help you streamline your living space and create a more organized environment:


  1. Start small: Don't overwhelm yourself by trying to tackle everything at once. Begin with one area or room and gradually work your way through the rest of the house.

  2. Declutter ruthlessly: Be honest with yourself about what you truly need and use regularly. Discard expired prescriptions or broken equipment. Consider the "one-year rule" – if you haven't used or worn something in the past year, it's probably time to let it go.

  3. Create designated spaces: Designate specific areas for medications and medical equipment so that it doesn't take over your house. For example, have a designated spot for medications, syringes, equipment, etc.

  4. Invest in storage solutions: Utilize storage bins, baskets, shelves, and other organizational tools to help keep belongings neat and tidy. Make use of vertical space to maximize storage in small areas. You can often find really reasonable storage at the dollar store or on websites like Temu or Shein.

  5. Establish routines: Develop weekly and monthly routines for tidying up and maintaining your organized space. Use this time to refill medication containers and syringes, or to take time to call in new prescriptions/deal with insurance.


Overall, organizing and decluttering your living space post-transplant can have significant benefits for both your physical health and mental well-being. By following these tips and maintaining a clean and organized environment, you can create a space that supports your recovery and enhances your overall quality of life.
