I was reading a book recently about the sparse homes in the Puritan days. The description of rooms were little more than furniture. We are living much differently today.
Decluttering is always a popular goal . To help you decide what to keep and what not to keep, it’s important to understand why you are decluttering in the first place. Decluttering because it’s something you “should” do is not reason enough.
Do you want to…
- Create space for your passions and creativity
- Make your daily routine easier
- Sell things to buy something you really want
- Find things
- Feel more calm and centered, less chaotic
- Be more productive
- Get free of your past
- Gain more energy
Knowing your reasons behind decluttering will help you decide what needs de-cluttering. If you want to be more creative, perhaps you’ll want to tackle the craft room first. If you want to make your daily routine easier, follow the path you take when you get ready in the morning. What is in the way of that?
What are your reasons to declutter?
