Projects with Purpose

The start of a new year is a great time to identify projects around your home that will help to keep things moving in the right direction all year round. Decluttering and getting organized are usually at the top of to-do lists when it comes to what needs to get done around the house. If you want to make your decluttering efforts stick, engage in purposeful decluttering! 

Did you know?... 

  • The average American spends 1 year of their life looking for lost items. 
  • 25% of people with a 2 car garage can't even fit one car inside, and another 32% can only fit one car inside. 
  • Most people wear 20% of their clothing 80% of the time.

Identify your "why"
Knowing the real reason why you're tackling a specific task will give you the motivation needed to make it a success. Make a list of all the reasons you want to live with less. They can be as simple as “clean counter-tops” or something that means more to you like, “working less” or “downsizing to a smaller space.” Use those whys as leverage to prevent the clutter from creeping back in. When you come across a great offer at your favorite store, or see a compelling advertisement, go back to your why.
When you clear the excess clutter out of your life, you will notice the positive effects it has on your mental state and overall wellness. Once your home life and your work life are physically cleaned out and minimized, your mind will be at ease. Work on reducing to what you really need and see the positive changes that follow.
Benefits of decluttering & getting organized: 

  • Reduces your stress level
  • Clears your mind
  • Save your time and money 
  • Promotes Charity 
  • Makes you love your home 

If you want to find your purpose, and discover what matters in your life, get rid of everything that doesn't.
