Blue Question MarkAs you embark on your decluttering and organizing journey, ask yourself this question:

What am I creating space for?

If the things in your home are weighing you down, creating space will allow you to feel uplifted and joyful. If you spend too much time dealing with your stuff, shuffling things around because things don’t have an “away,” then creating space will let you spend your time on more meaningful and enjoyable activities.

Decluttering isn’t simply about getting rid of stuff for the sake of getting rid of stuff. It’s much more than that. It’s about letting things go so you can have more space, time, order and joy.

When you connect with the end result—your underlying reason for letting things go—decluttering becomes a simpler process, and a more enjoyable one, too.
