Tips for Removing Clutter!
Do you have too much clutter?
Clutter refers to a collection of unorganized items that are excessive, and not used regularly.
It can include clothes, papers, household items, or digital clutter like unnecessary files and emails.
Clutter can accumulate over time and can create a messy home or working environment.
Removing clutter frees us up to do the things we enjoy doing, so why do people have so much stuff?
People accumulate belongings for various reasons like shiny object syndrome, emotional attachment, fear of scarcity, or lack of organizational skills.
This leads up to the buildup of clutter, which makes it difficult to find and enjoy valued items.
By understanding these motivations, we have the ability to make conscious choices to declutter, in order to create better living spaces.
As Monika Kristofferson says “You’re the boss of clutter, not the other way around.”
Tips for Removing Clutter!
Use Two Minute Timers to Declutter:
⏳ Declutter a small area, like a countertop, drawer, or shelf.
⌛ Quickly go through your mail, shredding junk, recycling, or filing important documents or bills.
⏳ Clear unnecessary items from your desk, creating a clean and organized workspace.
⌛ Empty your purse (or pockets), by removing any unnecessary items, receipts, or trash. Have you ever noticed your purse feeling heavy sometimes?
⏳ Set a timer and declutter your entryway by organizing shoes, coats, and accessories.
⌛ Straighten and organize books on your bookshelf, by discarding outdated or unwanted items.
⏳ Declutter the refrigerator, freezer, or pantry, by removing expired food items you no longer use.
⌛ Delete unnecessary emails, unsubscribe from undesirable mailing lists, and move important messages into folders.
⏳ Declutter a clothing drawer, and remove any items that you no longer wear or need. Maybe start with a sock drawer.
⌛ Turn on the microwave for two minutes and load or unload the dishwasher.
Decluttering is an Ongoing Process!
Remember, decluttering is an ongoing process, and every small step counts.
By breaking it down into manageable two-minute tasks, you can make progress in maintaining a less cluttered and organized living space and it’s a good way to simplify your life.
“If you’re looking for an easy way to reduce stress, decluttering your environment may be a good place to start. Getting rid of excess stuff can benefit your mental health by making you feel calmer, happier, and more in control. A tidier space can make for a more relaxed mind” according to WebMD.
Peter Walsh says that “Clutter is not just the stuff on your floor, it’s anything that stands between you and the life you want to be living.”
