I know what it’s like to stand at the door of a room and think, “We need to do something. What are we going to do with all of this stuff?”
The answer is to get organized and start decluttering.
But how? Where do I start? I’m sure you are thinking…We don’t have enough space.We have to invest in organization systems. The kids needs so much stuff.
Just Stop. Just stop with the excuses and get going already. Harsh but true.
Your home should be a comfortable place for you and your family. A place of rest.
So take the first steps for dealing with the mess. I promise once you start the work it will be worth it. Once you get over this hurdle you will be able to have a consistently clean home.
First, get rid of your junk and then you will organize what is left.
I myself try to make do with the space we have and if things don’t fit I get rid of something. This is a skill I have learned after a few years of decluttering my home.
This may seem like an impossible idea for you, but I bet you find a whole new you once you have this mess cleaned up.
Be ruthless and get rid of anything that you don’t use or love. Touch every single item in your home and decide to love it or leave it.
Just start with one item and then move to the next… and the next… and the next.
Decluttering is THE key to a clean home. You don’t need to be a minimalist to declutter. Having less means cleaning less. When you declutter your home, it is almost like magic. You suddenly have more time because you are not constantly picking things up.
After your whole house is decluttered (Yay!), you will want to start a cleaning routine. This is what is going to help you stay on top of things, and never let your house get like that again.
After everything is said and done, you can put organization systems into place. Plus, You will find when things are aesthetically pleasing you are more likely to keep them picked up and in their place.
