According to Dara, there is so much time spent cleaning and getting through piles of “stuff” leaving little time to concentrate on more important things. Getting rid of clutter eliminates a tremendous amount of housework in an average home. People have repeatedly told me that they need more space, when in reality de-cluttering and organizing their home will help them appreciate and better utilize the space they already have, DaraMichelle has helped many people find that precious space, leaving people organized homes and, subsequently, more time to do other things.
It is so hard to stick to resolutions. Getting organized may be easier than you think. Pick one area of your home to start with. Make three piles – one of definite keepers, one of definite “goers,” and one for those items that you just aren’t sure about. For each item you place in the piles think about the following:
When was the last time I used this item? What is the item used for?
Is this item sentimental?
Does this item take up necessary space for other things?
What would the consequence be for getting rid of the item?
As soon as you finish with one room, begin the next. Remember, baby steps help you see success, and motivate you to go further.
Having a clutter-free, organized home helps you live a less-stressed, more relaxing life with plenty of time to the things you love to do. Good luck with your resolution!
