Don't Store the Clutter, Eliminate It!

Got plans to accomplish some organizing projects soon? Don't skip the second step in my simple organizing process - The STUFF System™ - Take Out!
  • Get rid of that stuff that is just not bringing value to your life.
  • Let go of those things you've been holding onto for "just in case."
  • Free yourself from the stuff!
  • Organized clutter can be just as draining.

I always tell my clients that I will never make them get rid of something they don't want to. I'm not a big meanie, after all. But, I do challenge them to take a good look at the stuff that is taking over their homes. What does it really represent? Are you going to let it control you?

P.S. I was straightening up a bathroom closet today and realized I have a lot of unused space-others would die to be in this situation. Then a thought came to me I knew I was going to blog about it. Just because you have the space, doesn't mean you have to fill it up. Now, this is not my own unique and brilliant thought. Professional organizers everywhere know this fact (and many who are not P.O's, know it too). I challenge you to really look at that stuff that you store in your home.

I would LOVE to have unused space! Honestly, I think I'd just stare at it and enjoy it.

I was wondering what empty space looks like. Sad, but true.
