Clutter is sneaky. It invades our homes slowly over time while we barely notice there is an issue. Until one day opening a closet becomes a nightmare as things come tumbling down from the top. However it is a popular belief that lots of clutter promotes stress. Lightening the load is often a great way to find a fresh lease on life. Now how do you get started?
Start with a small project. List the most cluttered rooms in your home. Start with the worst space. Take a look around. What stuff doesn't belong? Give yourself 10 minutes and gather up things that don't have to reside in that room and decide whether to put them where they should be or put them in a container to figure out at another time. After your 10 minute clean up, assess the space again. Does it look larger, brighter and more inviting?
Second, consider the furnishings in the space. Are there too many pieces? Is the furniture in the space too big? Think about relocating excess furnishings and substituting scaled back pieces. Don't want to part with your mother's intricate buffet or a special family trunk? You do not have to decide now.
Look for a facility that offers self storage in Lancaster, PA. You might find great deals on storage units around Lancaster, Pennsylvania that can safely keep extra furnishings, seasonal decorations, outdoor furniture and much more. Attempt this exercise for all the spaces in your home in the near future. Tackle a single space each time and you will be well on your way to decluttering your home and easing your stress.
