3 EASY TRICKS TO START DECLUTTERING TODAY
- Clean up after yourself.
- If it brings you joy — keep it.
- If you want and can use it — keep it.
Take all the “other” stuff out the door!
Decluttering is not just about getting rid of things, it is about creating systems in your home that make your life simpler.
- Clean up the kitchen before you go to bed.
- Empty wastes baskets daily.
- Set up a dirty clothes hamper in your closet.
- Vacuum the whole house weekly.
Decide and commit to decluttering, while you read this post.
Sometimes decluttering is simply the process of clearing your kitchen counters. An example is to move the salt and pepper shakers on the kitchen counter to the spice rack. Now you have more free counter space.
Yesterday, I requested both The Nature Conservancy http://nature.org and the National Audubon Society http://Audubon.org to stop sending me the hard copy edition of their monthly magazines. They gladly agreed to my request!
Declutter the easy things first. Set a 10 minute time limit.
Please send me a note at email@example.com and let me know how decluttering is working for you. I would love to hear from you! 😇
How does your garden grow?
That photo was taken by my friend, Margaret, of the harvest from her garden.
Tracie McBride, who wrote Frugal Luxuries http://amzn.to/2en0QEA , got it right the way she pointed out the luxury of having a garden, a clothes line, and taking time to prepare a home cooked meal are frugal luxuries.
Today, it seems like we are all in a rush to dash off somewhere, without taking time to appreciate what we already have.
Please join me in giving thanks to the many people who stepped up to the plate to help others during and after Hurricane Harvey.
Thanks for dropping by. Kathleen
