It is surprising how clutter can build up in a home?  Do you wonder where it comes from?

Well, have a good look in the mirror, you have probably brought most of it into your home or been given it  …

  • * Shopping and failure to let go of unneeded items are the main contributors to clutter
  • * Shopping can be instant “wonderful” gratification making us feel great but the “high” usually does not last for long
  • * Think about your recent shopping trips – how many bags of items, groceries, etc, did you bring into your home – did you have space to put them or are some of them just sitting around for you to miraculously uncover an empty spot, shelf or wardrobe that has some space

I am definitely not a minimalist – I love shopping and love beautiful stuff, so I have lots in my home but I also value my space and a good clear out.
So, I have an IN & OUT Policy – when I buy something then something must go, e.g. –

  • Bought some new clothes, then I donate a bag of clothes to charity
  • Purchased new drinking glasses, then I sort through my accumulation of orphaned glasses – donating good ones, recycling the rest

My home is not perfect – I get busy and at times a few piles build up, but as soon as I have some free time (like today), I get sorting and get my “stuff” back under control
It’s your stuff, your life, your space – if you are clutter challenged, then assess where it has come from & find a way to deal with the source …
Happy sorting, take care …
