How Decluttering Can Improve Your Life…

Everyone knows they need to declutter, but many don’t realise the benefits that will result when they finally do. Some can do it on their own and some need a helping hand from someone like a professional organiser, but whichever way you do it everyone in your life will benefit.

So in no particular order, here are my top four reasons why decluttering will improve your life – and the lives of those around you!

1. Improving your mental state

How many times have you heard this gem: A cluttered home is the sign of a cluttered mind! Well it’s true. Decluttering your home helps to free your mind, to think clearer, and to be less stressed. An organised house supports organised thinking and a more positive attitude.

2. Improving your finances

Ask yourself these questions:


*How many times have you bought the same thing twice because you couldn’t find it the first time?

*How many times have you bought “bargains” only to find you don’t need them and they then clutter up the house?

*How many times have you misplaced bills so you had to pay late fees? Or lost Lotto tickets that could be big winners? Or cheques that haven’t been cashed?

*How much money have you found under that pile of papers on your desk?

3. Improving yours and your family’s health

*You have more energy. As the draining energy of clutter diminishes the positive energy of becoming clutter free increases so you feel better.

*There is less “stuff” around the home collecting dust or being a trip hazard.

*The house is much easier to clean – and easier to keep it that way.

*Fresh air can circulate helping you to breathe.

*You will feel less inclined to scream at your children when they can’t find things!

4. Improving your social life

Imagine this perfect scenario:

*You can find your kitchen bench tops again so you can cook.

*Your dining room table is clear so you can sit down to dinner with family.

*You are no longer embarrassed to have visitors around for a BBQ.

*Guests can stay overnight or for a week in your spare room (if you want them to!)

Most importantly, being clutter-free and organised gives you more time for things you want to do: cooking, exercising, reading, family time, hobbies, taking a bath – YOU time!

These are just four areas of improving your life when you take the courage to declutter your home – there are literally thousands more. So…what are you waiting for?
