Clearing Clutter

leave the clutter behind

One of my beloved clients is moving out of a 4 story home. Here’s the paper he’s leaving behind.

February 2017

“Clear clutter – make space for you.”
      – Magdelena Vandenberg
Space for you – doesn’t that sound like a dream come true?! Give it a try this week and see how you do.

Got Clutter?

Delayed decision making increases clutter. When you get interrupted or can’t make a decision, that’s when the accumulation begins.

Here are some quick fixes for overflowing categories of many homes:

Gloves, hats and scarves – This time of year, gloves, hats and scarves need to be in an easy to reach, accessible location. You don’t need to have ALL of your gloves, hats and scarves in plain view…but find a place where you can store the ones you use ALL the time.
Mail – When the mail comes, before you leave it on the counter, pull out the bills and time sensitive items and clip them to the side of the fridge or on the front of an desktop file box like this one. While you’re at it, recycle the junk mail immediately by having a recycle bag or box in the kitchen. Toss the reading materials in a basket and when the basket gets too full, toss the older stuff.
Shoes – Instead of having ALL of your shoes in full view, select the ones you wear most of the time and have them front and center. Dress shoes or seasonal shoes can be stored on a high shelf or placed in a storage tub.

Laundry – Try doing laundry once a day so it never accumulates….or at least a few times a week. It’s very overwhelming to have a tower of clothing to wash and put away.

Take a look around your home and see what items you use all the time – that’s what deserves the best space. If there are no available spaces anywhere in the home, then it might be time to contact me.
