CONTAIN YOUR CLUTTER; CONTROL YOUR LIFE
In life there are many different ways to approach every issue. Like what type of diet to follow,. Diets are lifestyle choices and some lifestyle choices work for some of the people some of the time, but there is no one lifestyle that works for all the people all the time.
The same goes for De-cluttering and Organizing. There are many books written on the subject of De-cluttering and Organizing. There are many Methods. There are the spiritual methods which ask us to explore what evokes joy in our hearts. There are methods that divide our homes into zones. Methods that have you set up rules such as; the one item in….one item out rule. Cleaning Schedules to set up and stick to like we are soldiers in the army.
I have a very simple and basic idea that can help most people hold clutter at bay no matter how much effort they wish to expend or even if they wish to expend no effort at all.
I am a very spiritual person and I love to put thought into the items that I keep in my home. Do they bring me joy? Do the items I keep serve a purpose? Does this outfit make me feel comfortable and beautiful? When I lay down on the sheets I own tonight do I feel safe and tucked in each night?
I do imagine however that there are some people who do not put that much thought into how many items they keep or why they are keeping them or where they are keeping them.
My favorite System works well for both kinds of people. The over thinkers like myself or the no thinkers. It is a simple elegant system that is pretty much basic common sense. No matter what size home we have everything I our lives will run smoother if you have in place a simple and easy to follow organizing system.
My container system is simply that. Organize everything in a container. When the container is full we are complete. Of course things always wear out or rip or tear of fall apart so we will always be replacing and de-cluttering naturally.
You have a Linen Closet or Area in your house. The easiest way to organize is it is to put things in bins and baskets and make it look lovely. If you have more items than you have room for in you designated Linen Closet Area you simply donate the ones that you choose not to keep. It makes it easy and simple. So I say; “If it doesn’t fit, don’t let it sit……donate it now.” It can be a blessing for someone who will use it more than you do.
This method works for ANY Area or Zone of anyone's home. Just remember inside a closet use see thru organization baskets or containers. Visible Storage should be stored in pretty inspiring containers.
“If it doesn’t fit, don’t let it sit……donate it now.”
