I had a lot of boxes stacked up in my room full of very precious junk. Yesterday I hauled them all out and went through them all and sorted through most of it.
I feel so much better today just having done that small thing. It took me about 3 hours, but it was worth it. I try to do this at least once a year, sometimes twice to every room in the house.
Clutter can affect your mood and whole being. By dealing with it can lighten you up. It can seem like a mountain, but here is a great way to tackle it:
- Schedule when you are going to do it
- Start with one thing
- Make piles of like items
- Deal with one room at a time
- Get the others involved
- Organize the room
- Acknowledge you achievement
Once you have reclaimed your space, a new look maybe in order. Don't forget that a small difference such as a new area rug can brighten up a room. Area rugs can make a bold statement or be a subtle accent. A rug can be a nice reward to reclaiming that once unusable space.
The lifted weight you will feel after is amazing and lasts for a long time. By cutting the tasks down to smaller jobs, sorting and labeling, giving everything it's own place, getting others to help you makes what seemed like a huge job attainable.
