Is it Clutter or Hope?

Is it Clutter or Hope?

So many of our clutter problems are really just aspirations gone awry.

How to manage clutter versus aspirations

Pantry = I want to eat healthier.

Kitchen = I want to learn how to cook like they do on TV.

Books = I want to become someone who knows things, who learns another language. who reads the classics.

Photos = I want to tell my family’s story.

Closets = I wish I were a different size. I still feel like the person who wore suits to the office before I retired.

Garage = I want my house to be the place where all the neighborhood kids come to play.

Craft room = I want to learn how to sew. I want to be a DIY wonder. I want to be organized.

If you look around your house and see a pile of aspirations, stop beating yourself up and make a decision…any decision.

Is today the day that you try a new recipe, start learning a new language, start sorting your family photos, or make space in the storage areas for the person you are right now?

Don’t wait for a special occasion.

Don’t wait for permission.

Don’t wait for the “right” way.

Don’t wait for enough energy.

Don’t wait for perfection.

Don’t wait until your good intentions become clutter.

Don’t wait until you have the “right” house, bigger closets or fewer distractions. Organize now with what you have.

Today is the day.
