Your home should be a peaceful place to enjoy at all times of the day. For most of us, it is difficult to relax in a cluttered space. Balance starts at home. I would love to help you achieve an organized and functional space so that you can spend your free time doing the things that matter to you most. Developing a few effective habits can really make a huge difference in your ability to stay focused on what’s most important to you.
Every home and family has different requirements and circumstances to make it function efficiently. Do what works for you! Ask yourself a few questions. Why is your home causing you stress? Do you have excess belongings? What are your time limitations? The answer to these questions will motivate you to let go of the clutter and have the organized space you deserve.
Consider adopting these strategies to calm the chaos:
A calming vibe starts as soon as you step in the door. After a long day, stepping through your door should feel like a weight coming off your shoulders. Put items away immediately as you enter. Have a place for everything so that clutter doesn’t pile up. This will also help streamline your morning routine as well – finding your car keys won't delay your day!
For most people, it is difficult to get rid of things you’ve spent hard-earned money on that you once used or loved. I know it is hard to make decisions about your stuff, it can be complicated and sometimes filled with sentimental value. These are real and valid feelings that can make it challenging. To be effective with the organization process though you must declutter first. Simply stuffing all the things into cute bins and baskets may look pretty at first but it is only a temporary solution that won’t last long. Letting go gets easier each time you do it, purging is something that just takes practice.
There are a few options when decluttering your belongings:
There are practical ways to avoid building a mountain of clutter. Let’s face it, life gets busy, but if you can devote 10-20 minutes to a specific project it makes maintaining your house a breeze. For example, address incoming mail and emails daily instead of letting them pile up. Many things only take a few minutes if they are done regularly, so before you call it a day, spend a few minutes tidying the house so you are set up for success the next day!
