I have created a new definition for clutter. Clutter is an accumulation of things out-of-place and order that disrupts peace, tranquility and creativity.
Busyness has a way of taking life from a cool, calm and collected state. Organization goes out the door because your home turns into a hotel room. You sleep there, get up and go and return at the end of the day continuing to clutter.
Mail, papers and clothes become lost-they can’t find their homes. As a result of that piles of clutter appear all over the place. They grow and grow and grow some more. It makes you think the next step is a starring role on the hoarders’ show.
In order to not be the hoarders’ star, clutter has to be evicted. Before the eviction notice can be delivered the busy schedule needs to be revisited and reworked. Do all those things need to be done. Will they make you or break you? What are the top three things you want to do well? Pick them and eliminate everything else. Next step is devise a plan. Get help or do it yourself.
Clutter I want to speak to you. Your time is short in my home. You are a squatter and you have to go. So pack your bags and hit the door. You are evicted.
