Clutter… it can consume our lives if we’re not careful! Have you ever been on a mission to de-clutter and wonder where all this stuff came from? You’re definitely not alone. Somehow, things tend to accumulate without even realizing it. And according to a new survey by Olio, there are 10 things that clutter our houses.
With a new year now underway, maybe you’re thinking of doing some decluttering. Maybe this list can help you tackle some of the things that clutter your house! My best advice for de-cluttering is not to get overwhelmed. Start with one room and one particular area. Like the bathroom. Simply clean out one drawer or cabinet.
If it helps, make a game of it. Or get your family involved! I’ve been known to set a time goal. For example, if I finish this by 11 a.m. I can (insert fun activity here)! I’ve also seen where people decide on a number of things to get rid of each day or week. Recently I saw something about getting rid of 23 things a week since it’s 2023. That’s a pretty cool idea.
Of course, we’ve all heard plenty of de-cluttering advice. But if you’re like me… you might have an emotional attachment to certain things. I know it’s hard for me to get rid of something that a loved one gave me, especially if they’ve passed away. And of course, there’s always the “I might need this one day…” I’m guilty there too! But, most of those things have been sitting in a closet or drawer for over 5 years now. So chances are there won’t ever be a “one day” in that situation.
