Clean out Clutter!

Posted on May 31, 2010. Filed under: Clearing Clutter, Time Management |

Spring and Summer seem like natural times to clean out clutter and free up some space.  The emotional benefits of lightening up are enormous – there is a definite “Ah!”  feeling to opening a drawer or closet that you have decluttered,  especially if your previous reaction had been more “Ugh”.   I would say it contributes to happiness!

Just start small.  Pick a drawer or a shelf that has been silently taunting you and go for it.  You can even use minutes otherwise wasted – when you are on the phone or on hold, or in the kitchen waiting on the timer to ring or before you have to leave the house to pick up a child from school, etc.

Take everything out or off the space and spread it out in front of you.  This way when you see everything all at once you can eliminate more and organize more efficiently,  and you can quickly clean the surfaces with a damp cloth too.  My personal mantra is “If in doubt, throw it out”.

You will get such a positive feeling from this clutter cleanup  and feel so good when you see the results that you will be supercharged to start on your next problem area!
