Less is always more - especially when it comes to stuff! Toys, books, clothes, knick knacks, are just some of the objects that count as “stuff” in your home. A lot of the time, this “stuff” collects in cupboards, drawers, and any open surface until it threatens to take over not just your home, but your life.
The less tangible stuff you have cluttering up your home, the less intangible stuff you have cluttering up your mind. Having a clean and clear space to sit, relax, and visit in is important – no one wants to walk by piles of stuff and be reminded of all the cleaning and organizing that they’ve been meaning to do but haven’t got around to.
Clutter creates unnecessary stress in your life. Just think of how much time, energy, and money could be saved if all the clutter in your home isn’t weighing you down!
Making a commitment to getting organized and staying organized is not always easy. However, every person can find a system that works for them. Whether it’s taking 10-15 minutes each day to do a quick clean, or dedicating a certain amount of time each week or each month to do a bigger de-cluttering, everyone has the ability to clear the clutter from their life.
Once you start getting rid of the items that you don’t need and are just collecting dust in your home, you may feel more motivated to maintain your organized state.
It’s a lot easier to stay organized once you’ve finally got yourself organized, with a system in place that works for you and your family. However, it’s more than just getting organized – it’s making a lifestyle change.
Next time you go shopping or see something you think you need online, ask yourself if there is a real need for the item in your home and if there is space for it in your life. Being mindful of the stuff you bring into your home can save you money, time, and space in the long run!
