Declutter Your Home Harrisburg

Don’t Get Overwhelmed When You Declutter Your Home in Harrisburg

Has this ever happened to you: you stood up and said “today is the day I get all this clutter out of my house!” So you get started clearing out closets and drawers and the dreaded junk room, looked around at the colossal mess, got horribly discouraged, and quit? This has probably happened to everyone at one point or another. But decluttering your home in Harrisburg doesn’t have to be a discouraging exercise.

The key to decluttering your Harrisburg home is to slow down. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the emotions that accompany so much stuff. And it can be doubly-hard when trying to get rid of so many personal belongings. Every item has a story, sorting out which stories to keep and get rid of can be overwhelming. Also, seeing a bigger mess than you had before can make you feel like a failure. By going through items slowly, only one drawer at a time and never for more than an hour at a time, it allows you to not become overwhelmed by mess and emotions.  If you think the job will take you three hours, plan for six. If you think it will take two days, plan for four. Give yourself ample time so you aren’t rushed into decisions and so that you don’t get disappointed when it takes longer than you thought.

The simple tip of slowing down can save you a lot of frustration and heartache.
