This is my ultimate, all-in-one guide on how to declutter your home. I draw on several of my other blogs posts here (all linked in the text), and also on the process that I teach in my Declutter course. Take it step-by-step and declutter your way out of chaos to create a home that is easy to run and simple to clean!
When you’re feeling completely overwhelmed by clutter (and all the other stuff that also needs doing in life, like parenting, cooking, finances, shopping and cleaning), it can paralyse you into doing absolutely nothing. Have you ever had plans to sort something out the minute the kids are in bed… only to put the telly on and pour yourself a glass of wine instead?
(Surely not just me?)
This is a light-hearted (true) decluttering story of some of the things I cleared out after my Mum died.
I can think of many good reasons to declutter your home. A calmer environment, easier cleaning, and less feelings of overwhelm are all benefits of living with less. But did you know there’s another, more pressing reason for clearing your space? I’m going to talk today about how clutter affects your health. You might think that clutter is something that you can block out with some TV and a glass of wine (I did that for years!), but the fact is, it affects you more than you realise.
So many people dream of living a simpler and less cluttered life. We love instagram images of minimalist houses and Pinterest pins of decluttering and organising methods. But the action required is often overlooked in favour of other things. What stops people from decluttering and creating an environment they want to live in?
