Coffee and clutter. Two things I know very well. Coffee makes it possible to do all the things – like go toe to toe with those closets full of clutter.
I have been fighting a battle with clutter all of my life. I am not a messy person, but I live in a small house. A small pile of stuff feels like a mountain in the middle of a room.
I’ve read all the books, watched all the YouTube videos, listened to all of the audio books, I’ve discovered the guru who loves routines and another one who finds magic in being tidy and yet, none of them spoke to me completely. I found some great tips and tricks from all of them to create my own version of keeping my house at bay and one big secret.
Are you ready for the secret?
Are you sure, you’re ready? It’s going to blow your mind.
Here it is.
You have to be in a constant state of clutter removal from your home. You can’t do it just once and call it good. At least, not until I find out the magic Harry Potter words that keeps all the clutter under control with the flick of my wrist. Until then, you have to keep on top of it constantly.
Maybe it’s “Clutter Disappearus” (magic wand flick).
Nope. It didn’t work. So on to decluttering.
That’s the plan. We are going to do this over and over again until it becomes habit and decluttering is a constant part of your life. Sure, you can still do a major decluttering session like the rest of the world at the beginning of the year, but wouldn’t you rather be able to get through it in a few days, rather than months?
Are you ready?
