I write a lot about decluttering. Like, a lot a lot. If you want to browse everything, do that here, but maybe you have limited time and you just want to read the best of the best.
I will say, it was very hard to reduce down my favorites to only 10, because there’s some important message in each thing I write (or I wouldn’t write it). But still … I did it. Based on my difficult decisions, here’s what I think are the most important posts about Decluttering:
(Some of these I wrote years ago, so be forgiving of old graphics!)
“How does Perfectionism effect decluttering?”
“As you begin to do a few small things, you’ll notice a miracle within yourself starts to happen.”
“I’m a professional organizer and a mother. I’ve put together an eBook that details my experience teaching children how to declutter. It is 8 pages and a quick read, but so important if you are trying to declutter children’s things.”
“Stop feeling like you need to fill a void with stuff.”
“Love comes with the freedom to be happy, or it isn’t really love.”
“Clutter is a weight that has built on top of you so gradually, you don’t even realize anymore that it is holding you down.”
“Perfectionism is that feeling that says do all or nothing. Do it all perfectly or don’t try at all. Perfectionism is rooted in unrealistic perceptions and expectations of ourselves. Don’t let what you can’t do get in the way of what you can do.”
“I think you can all close your eyes and think of something you have kept long enough.”
“They ignore the truth that if one piece of plastic wasn’t available for those 15 minutes, the child would have found something else to do.”
“Stop letting the stuff take over your life. If you have to choose between Your JUNK or Your Life – always choose your life.”
Alright, so there you go!! Now it’s time to read some inspiration and get your mind ready to declutter!
