5 Steps To Clutter Free Living

Thumbnail for 45985

This time of year, spring pollen coats your car and you can easily brush it away for a better view of the road. Dealing with clutter in your home (or life) can be the same way. You can even tackle big messes with a smile if you treat them like pollen on your car. Here are five steps to easily tackle any clutter:

  • Look around. Each time you walk into your space, notice which things make you feel happy and which make you sad, which things you love and which just take up space. Which things belong in a life you love and which need to go?
  • There is no time like the present. If you notice something that no longer belongs, don’t leave it where it is and wait to take action some other day. Walk up to it, appreciate what it may have done for you in the past, and emotionally let it go. Put it in your car or an “outgoing” box.
  • Move it out. Once a day, once a week, or once a month – however often works for you – donate the clutter, sell it or trash it. Keep the clutter moving out. Focus on appreciating what you have and what you love.
  • Even little steps get you there eventually. Clear away a little bit more of what is cluttering your life every day and the things you love will be easier to notice.
  • Eyes on the prize. Remember what matters and keep the cleaning project in perspective. Trash is not the most important thing in your life. Let your focus be on what you love!

Pollen and clutter can remind you of what you don’t want around, so you actively take action to make room for what you do want. Keeping the clutter moving out will clear the view for you to see even the tiniest treasures that every new day can bring.
