If you’re in the process of getting organized, here are a three simple organizing nuggets to inspire you to declutter and create change!
Change your relationship with stuff.
If you’re going through the process of getting more organized and “letting-go” of personal belongings, your relationship with “stuff” will likely change. This is especially true if you experience regret over spending money on things you’ve never used or rarely used. Use this new relationship with possessions to change how you shop. Remember, every single thing you bring into your home must be dealt with. The less stuff you bring into your home, the less time you spend dealing with your stuff—leaving you with more time for fun.
Ask: does this item enhance my life?
Here’s a wonderful question to ask as you’re going through your belongings during an organizing session: “does this item enhance my life?” this question is courtesy of industry guru Don Aslett who was featured on Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. Aslett went on to say that it’s doesn’t matter how long you’ve had something, who gave it to you (pause and realize I’m talking about gifts … yes, you don’t have to keep a gift forever just because it’s a gift), or how much it cost … if it doesn’t enhance your life it’s clutter. Clutter should go.
Strive to make progress.
You don’t have to start and finish your decluttering projects in a single organizing session. Instead, look for ways to make a little bit of progress each and every day. You’ll be amazed at what you will achieve, when you focus on making progress a little bit at a time!
