Clutter – 09/08/2018

September 8, 2018

Clutter…. something we all have in our life.  It stares at us, it overwhelms us, it lingers upon us.  Sometimes we try to tackle it, but then life gets in the way.  Stopping to look at that clutter one day you realize how unnecessary so much of it is.  It is space filler that often clogs your view of what is good.  Even the clutter you want to keep is doing no good lying around making you feel like you live in a heap of chaos. Over the years I have found that by decluttering my home of excess baggage, I have been able to simplify my space, so I can focus on the things around me that I really want to see.

Decluttering begins with three bins.  One bin is for the items you need now.  These items will remain in your space and be used on a daily basis. The next bin is for the items you want to hold onto for the future but may not need now.  A child’s rocking chair that they have outgrown, but that should not be given away.  A journal that chronicled your last year that you may want to look back and ponder one day.  The final bin is for the items that you want to part with.  A book you already read.  A clothing item that no longer fits.  A kitchen utensil that you never use.  These items can be given to a local charity or sold on a resale site or at a tag sale.  Sometimes the thing you no longer use is exactly what someone else is looking for.

With filling these bins comes time…something that many of our Clients do not have.  One of the many services that we offer at Simply DONE is to help you clear out your space and fill up your bins.  One to use, one to keep and one to give away.  Is decluttering on your list of things to do, but not in your time budget?  Call on us and it will be Simply DONE!
