A cluttered home can leave you feeling like you have too much going on and may trigger some real anxieties. Learn how you can minimize your stuff.
The idea of living a simplified, uncluttered life with fewer things sounds attractive to many. Why wouldn’t it? It means less stuff to clean, more money in their pockets, less to organize, and less stuff to stress about. You may be ready to do more with your life with less . . . but many have the same underlying question: Where do I begin? We’re here to tell you where you can feasibly begin to start living your life with less clutter around the house.
3 creative ways to declutter your home.
- Give (or throw) away one item each day. No one is asking you to throw away everything you have. If your friend likes something that you haven’t used in months, or even years, you should give it to them. Try getting rid of one thing one day at a time.
- Fill one trash bag. Trash bags range in size, so to get the most fulfillment, try using a large one. See how quickly you can fill this bag up. While much of what you collect may be things you consider “junk,” it could also be used for Goodwill.
- The 12-12-12 challenge. This can be quite the game because it’s forcing you to consider the value of your things. Pick 12 items to throw away, 12 items to donate, and 12 items to be returned to their place. It’s a quick way to organize 36 things in your house.
You, too, can live minimally for a life with fewer worries. Remember: Hakuna Matata. For all of your lifestyle advice, or dance, yoga, and Pilates classes to help you start feeling your best, contact One Body Studios in La Habra, California.
