You ask yourself: Why do I have so much clutter?
You answer yourself: Duh, because I don’t have enough closet space, and I need more baskets, bins, caddies, holders, boxes, bags, and sorters to store my clutter.
Your first answer should be to call me and have me come to your house, but you probably answer yourself: Duh, because I don’t have enough closet space and I need more baskets, bins, caddies, holders, boxes, bags, and sorters to help with my clutter.
I hate to break it to you, but this is not the answer. Acquiring more stuff is never the answer to having too much stuff.
There are two primary reasons that you have clutter:
1. You have too much stuff that you don’t need, want or use.
2. The things that you do need, want and use have no designated places.
Why don’t the useful things have designated spaces? Because the useless things you don’t want/need/use are taking up prime real estate in closets and cupboards. This means that when you do try to put the essential, useful, necessary things into a closet or cupboard, there’s simply no room in there!
The only way to fix the problem is to identify which items you don’t actually want, and that don’t fulfill a purpose. Get these unnecessary things out of your life by giving them away, recycling them, or trashing them. That way, you can make room in your life for the thing that you love, value, and utilize.
I know that this can be challenging, and that’s why I’m here to help you. When you realize that you need help with clutter, just reach out. I’ll be here.
