Remove clutter…know when to let it go!

Clutter has a tendency to take up a lot of space. Additionally, clutter can pile up quickly, meaning your house could go from tidy to chaotic in a short period of time. This is especially true if you’re prone to placing sentimental value on items. Once you attach emotion to an object, it’s harder to get rid of. Harder, but not impossible. Don’t end up like one of those homes on Hoarders.

Don’t let clutter take over! Know when to let something go when you no longer have a need for it. Every year or two I try to go through things in storage and in my closet to get rid of. If it no longer has a purpose or doesn’t fit me then I don’t need it. Of course I struggle with a lot of items I don’t want to give up just yet. So I may hold on to it another year or so. If you’re not using the item then ask yourself why should you save it?

An Organized House is a Happy Life

Did you know, an organized house is a happy life! Do you feel better in a clean and uncluttered space? Sure you do! When everything in our home has its own place life just feels better.

Stop and think about how much stress in your life is actually created by clutter or poor organizational habits. Disorganized spaces can actually put stress on both the body and mind. Our bodies hurt when we trip over a misplaced shoe or step on a Lego (ouch!). Our minds hurt when we can’t find what we are looking for or we try to concentrate on something but the chaos around us is too distracting. Taking a little time to organize and declutter can lift a great weight.

If you feel like it’s time for an organization overhaul, my advice is to declutter first.

Clear The Clutter

Take a good look around and find things that you really don’t need. Try doing this room by room. Try not to touch the items too much. Holding items makes us remember why we were hanging onto them in the first place. If you’re not using it right now however, there is no need to keep it. Try to work fast and trust your first instinct. If you think about it for too long you will find a “reason” why you need to hang onto it.

Organizing for Happiness

Our challenge for today:

Choose one area that we want to clean and organize and get started on it TODAY. You may not have time to do a full-fledged purge today but you can at least start to envision what your clean and organized space should look like. You can also set a goal to get rid of 5 things from this particular space right now.

Then, choose five more areas you want to clean and organize this month. Here are some ideas:

  • Kitchen cabinets
  • Pantry
  • Laundry Room
  • Kids Toys
  • Paperwork
  • Refrigerator
  • Desk Drawers
  • Makeup Storage
  • Garage
  • Basement

 

Essentially having a clean and organized home allows my brain to relax and concentrate on things that are important, instead of feeling scrambled because I’m frantically searching for something I can’t find. Or constantly feeling like I need to clean the area around me instead of doing my office work. Go declutter, get organized and do what works for you!
