Where do you have the most clutter?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
In the past, I have asked questions on Facebook. I asked, “Where do you have the most clutter?” The responses were great! I would love to hear from you, too. Where is your clutter?
Here are some of the responses I had:
  • In my head
  • Everywhere
  • Master Bedroom
  • Closet
  • Shop
  • Garage
  • Kitchen Counter/Island
  • Desk/Drawers
  • Sewing Room
  • Basement
  • Junk Room
  • Guest Room
  • Extra apartment
  • Hallway
  • Home Office
  • Dining Room
  • Flat Surfaces
  • Attic
  • Schoolroom
As you can see, I got a lot of responses. Truly, the best way to combat clutter anywhere in your home is to consistently get rid of things every day. I mean throw it out or give it away. If you are moving it from place to place in your home, you are just reallocating clutter. You are not decluttering.
Decluttering is hard for some of you. Many of us were raised by a generation that taught us to hold onto things. You do not have to hang onto everything! You can bless others with your abundance.
Most of you have too many clothes, too many books, and too many toys for your children. This excess causes you stress. It takes up valuable space in your home. It takes up your valuable time as you move it from place to place. It causes you to procrastinate cleaning your home because you don’t want to move stuff around to clean.
It might seem like I am taking a hard line on your clutter, but sometimes that is what you need to hear. I mentor ladies who want to have peace in their homes and get rid of the clutter. The first several weeks are really hard as they develop the habit of getting the clutter out of their homes. They have to set up routines to throw out the trash and take donations weekly when they do errands.
You do not have to be perfect in decluttering. You do not have to get rid of everything, but you can thin down the amount of stuff in your home.
You have things in your home that you have not used in years. Start today.
Tell me where you are going to declutter for 10 minutes today, and tell me if you are throwing it away or giving it away.
I know you can do it!
Your Zone Mission today is to shine your tub and shower. Declutter in one other area.
Your Home Blessing for today is to dust and vacuum.
My menu plan for Tuesday is corn dogs and tater tots.
Have a great day!
