Do you have cluttery places in your home? Living in a small home means for us that we have to really tune in to clutter spots or the whole experience feels yuck. At this time in the tacky brown house, we are working on a new bedroom which translates my wardrobe, which is now my closet, is sitting in the living room as a piece of furniture. It becomes entirely too easy to use a nearby chair to lay things such as clean laundry on instead of putting it away when I am making my daily runs through the routines.
This last week or so, I’ve been taking on 10 minute challenges 3x a day to declutter what is happening in each of our 6 rooms. It is amazing how much more peaceful our living area exudes when counters and surfaces are picked up. It is the one visual I have brought home as the “ahhhh” of why when I travel the rooms feel so comforting….they are orderly with visual space.
What can you clear and declutter in 10 minutes? My hint for today is to bring home 3 boxes a month or 3 tubs for this purpose. At the end of the month, carry the giveaways, donations or have the tag sale you have gathered that month!
