Clutter Awareness Week


Clutter is anything that simply takes up space in your life without serving any real PURPOSE. And our reasons for accumulating it are as varied as the clutter itself. Maybe you think you "might need it some day." Or it's easier to let it pile up than make the hard decisions. Or you see your clutter as having POTENTIAL -- all those great ideas and unfinished projects that you hope to make time for. But regardless of the reason or type, clutter causes stress. The good news is, you don't have to be a VICTIM of clutter anymore. This month, we're going to focus on some practical steps you can take to eliminate clutter from your life. 

Some Practical Organizing Tips...

Start your cleaning out with a simple phrase -- is it beautiful, useful, or loved? If your belongings don't fall into one of these three CATEGORIES, why are you keeping them? Begin the new year fresh by clearing out some of the clutter in your life.
Ask yourself some hard QUESTIONS as you clean out -- be brutal as you examine each item. When did you use it last? When will you use it again? What purpose does it serve in your life? What is the worst thing that would happen if you got rid of it?
Try the "in-out" rule -- every time you bring in something new, you have to get rid of something old. Set either spatial or numerical LIMITS on how many of an item you will own. This will force you to decide which are your favorites and let go of the rest.
