We all have stuff in our space that we don’t even notice, until we think about getting organized. Then we start to question, “What if I need it someday?”, “Why did I buy this in the first place?”, “I wonder if it’s valuable?” But clutter slows you down and takes up space.
Clearing clutter is not “One Solution Fits All.” It can’t be done in one day. So, I decided to write a series of blogs to help you start thinking about how you can start to “Kiss Your Clutter Good Bye”. Follow along for different strategies to get rid of what is holding you back.
Edit Your Rooms
It is sometimes easier and more fun to make your organizing project more like something else. Consider working as though you were reading a book. The book is your room, the furniture a chapter, the storage within each piece of furniture, paragraphs and finally, the items in each space the words. Start editing the words that don’t work in the paragraphs until things seem to run smoothly. By thinking of organizing as a book you will:
- Be able to keep focused on the task at hand.
- Work on one chapter at a time, resisting the urge to move on to something else.
- Find motivation for a project that doesn’t seem exciting to you.
It works because you will focus on a method of organizing that will be different than what you have used before. You can edit however you’d like. It’s your project. Once you get started and develop your method of editing, you can use it throughout your space.
