Has a jumble of stuff taken over your Lancaster, PA home? If you do not have anymore desk space for your current mail, continue to run into furniture as you travel from room to room or simply can not bear to look at those cluttered book shelves anymore, it may be time for a clutter crash course.
Household clutter is sneaky. It accumulates slowly over time so that we hardly notice there is a problem. Until one day we open a closet door and things come tumbling down from the top shelf. But it's a popular belief that the amount of clutter in your house can determine your stress level. Lightening the load is often a great way to get a fresh lease on life. Now where do you start?
Start small. Make a list of the rooms with the most clutter in your home. Begin with the worst space. Take a look around. What stuff does not belong? Take a half hour and gather up things that don't need to be in that room and either put them in another place in the house or place them in a box to decide at a later date. After your half hour round, look over the space again. Does the room seem larger, brighter and more inviting?
Next, consider the furniture in the room. Is there too much furniture? Is the furniture in the room too large? Consider relocating excess items and replacing them with scaled back pieces. Can't bear to eliminate mom's fine china closet or that heirloom chest? Don't figure it out now.
