Clear That Clutter!
This is a really easy and much less painful way to de-clutter. This is all about changing your focus so that you can focus on what you do want rather than what you don't want.
Why do we accumulate clutter?
- because we like things
- have emotional attachment to things
- think that we may need these things again
- get busy and don't have time to sort through things
- we like to collect things
- we are saving these things for someone else
There is is theme here and it is things and how you think about them. Change how you think and you will change how you behave. People are important not things.
The best way to deal with clutter is to remove absolutely everything, I mean everything. Then, focus on what you want and like and put it back...keep adding until you feel like it is enough. It is funny that sometimes, you don't really want to add anything back, but you have to for others.
Try it a few times, start small dump out your desk drawer - or that junk drawer in the kitchen. Sometimes, if you can't find things you wind up buying another one - so what is the point of saving something in case you "might" need it someday...pass it on today to someone who does and go back to the thrift store and get it when you actually need it.
Focus on What you Want - Not on What you Don't Want!
