Clutter seems to be the bane of modern existence. It's so easy to ramp up the amount of objects in your home that it can become quite annoying after a while. As the late, great George Carlin once said, the whole meaning of life is just trying to find a place for your stuff, and that's all a house actually is: a place to hold all your stuff. Truer words have never been spoken, and I know firsthand how quickly clutter can get out of control. I know, deep down, there's got to be a reason I'm hanging on to magazines from 1994 (nostalgia? posterity?). And what about furniture that was a perfect fit for your home--three homes ago? Now it's dated, worn and two sofas and a chair, a coffee table and three bookshelves have no business being in your 10 x 12 living room. It's time to take a deep breath, and assess your living space. Here are a few signs that clutter has taken over your life, and what you can do to declutter your home.
Do You Need A Clutter Cleanout?
A room’s decor can become smothered by clutter, so much so you completely forget the design scheme you were going for. Clear out your space entirely, clean surfaces and work your decor pieces back in one at a time. You will see that not everything you own, whether big or small, is necessary to have in your space.
