Every year I vow to start afresh and do the whole de-cluttering thing – but do I ever get round to actually following through? Nope! So, this year I have promised myself that I will attempt to de-clutter (one room at a time) and try to keep my home and life as orderly as I can – the whole year! Bring on the challenge…
The real test will be continuing to keep up with de-cluttering – the entire year. Here are a few points to help you continue your de-cluttering mission:
- Don’t slack off. It’s easy to let the clutter take hold of your life and your home once more.
- Get into a routine or set up a system for yourself. Once you get use to the new way of doing things de-cluttering will become second nature.
- Deal with things immediately. Don’t put things off or you’ll start accumulating clutter – again!
- No second thoughts. When you have second thoughts about keeping something remember how great your home looks and how amazing you feel without all the extra clutter.
