Do you dream of a clutter-free living space, but feel overwhelmed by where to begin? Creating an organized home can seem daunting, but with the right approach, it's an achievable and incredibly rewarding goal. This article will equip you with practical tips and strategies to get started on your journey towards a calm and functional living space. Let's dive in and unlock the power of an organized home!

Focus on what there is to gain:

  • More space to enjoy: Is there a space or entire room in your home that's unusable?

  • Gain new appreciation: Decluttering can help you rediscover the items you truly love and appreciate.

  • Save money: Stop repurchasing items you already own! You might even be able to potentially earn some extra cash by selling what you don't need.

  • Less cleaning time: An organized home can significantly reduce cleaning time – studies suggest up to 40%!

  • Stress-free entertaining: Feel comfortable inviting guests over without the clutter causing anxiety.

  • More time for you: Spend less time searching for things and more time doing what you enjoy.

  • A domino effect of organization: The sense of accomplishment from organizing one space can motivate you to tackle other areas of your home or life.

Try the 10-10-10 method

  • SET A TIMER for 10 minutes

  • REMOVE or PUT AWAY 10 items in your space

  • REPEAT the practice for 10 days

Write it down and schedule it

Select a time you are going to practice decluttering and organizing. Write in on your calendar, planner or app. Most importantly, protect that time as if it were an important appointment. 

Start with What is Easy

  • Start with a less emotional space like a bathroom or laundry room

  • Tackling the large daunting task first, could set you up for more avoidance

  • Starting small helps to build confidence and momentum

Select a Meaningful Incentive

Decluttering is tough emotional work and we strongly believe in rewarding your hard work! Once you have completed a task, plan to reward yourself by having lunch with a friend, spend time relaxing, indulge in a pedicure or massage, or give yourself an hour to read.
