How To Get Rid of Clutter

cleaning-and-organizing-quote

Though cleaning can be very helpful in keeping the home or office tidy and picked up, it can never solve your organizational problems. A cleaning service can straighten up and clean, they cannot make decisions about what to keep, or throw away, or properly and purposely place the items in the home or office to create an efficient and functional space. Therefore, a cleaning company may be masking the underlying problems.

This is the area where CC Home Concierge Company is different – hell, some people say I’m different! And they would be right, I clean with a methodically, strategical and logical process. So what that means is when I am cleaning through the home or office, I am thinking how the area can be used in a more effective and purposeful way. After, the cleaning I work with the client to find a plan for the area or space. This way of cleaning and organizing is a more economically way of ridding your place of clutter . . . and finding purpose.

Motivational Monday Tip – Paper Process System

See the source image

That sounds boring doesn’t it?

But, once you set up your own Paper Process System in your home or office, it will so exciting to know that every piece of paper that enters the home or office has a place and purpose.

Now, does that sound boring?

There are only 4 basis things you can do with a piece of paper:

  1. To Do
  2. To Pay
  3. To Read
  4. To File

That’s it – four basis decisions to make about every single piece of paper, magazine, newspaper that comes into your space. If you are dealing with a paper-problem in your home or office, make sure you gather up ALL papers from every room that are stashed on top of dressers, in closets, on top of refrigerators and kitchen counters, magazine rack in bathrooms, bookcases, cabinets. Put all the papers into a huge stack – if your stack is so high it is toppling, grab a big carbon box to put the papers. Once you have collected all of the loose papers and files in one area (one zone) – it’s time to sit down and methodically go through the papers, one piece at a time. Remember the 4 basis decisions of your simple paper process system. Once a piece of paper has been put into – To do, To pay, To read, To file, throw away the rest. This is the boring and tedious part of the process

Here are questions to ask when going through the papers:

To Do

  • Do I really need to do this?
  • Is it too late to do this?
  • Do I really want to do this?
  • Does anybody care if I do this?

To Pay

  • Has this already been paid?
  • Is there a problem with this bill that I need to look into?

To Read

  • Is there a sound reason I must read this?
  • Do I have time to read this?
  • Is this out of date?
  • Do I have more than three months’ worth of issues here?

To File

  • Remember that 80% of everything you file you will never look at again
  • Archival Files – include financial and legal papers that you are required by law to keep for a specific period of time, but that you are not using on a regular basis.
  • Current Files – include papers that you might use as a resource on a regular basis, and current financial, legal, and business or clients files.
  • Circular File – This file is also known as The Trash.

This paper process system I learned years ago – I took the system and repurposed it to accommodate my office and clients. The difference is I work in Zones – because it was overwhelming for many of my clients to see the big huge pile of papers, they would not want to sit and go through one piece at a time. But, when I redesigned the system to work in zones of the home or office, it was a much more successful process for them.

If you are looking for a Paper Process System for your home or office and you do not know where or how to start, I can help with my organizational coaching, where I am working with you throughout each zone of your home or office. Together we are going to get you excited about how to handle every single paper that comes into your space.

What is your clutter costing you?

The Cost of Clutter

There is nothing wrong with having an affection for clutter, but when clutter gets out of control and becomes an irritation rather than a source of comfort – its time to ask if it is costing you valuable energy and the opportunity to live a comfortable life.

Here are the Costs

  1. Monetary – buying stuff you don’t need
  2. Physical – moving all your stuff from one area to another
  3. Mental – worry and stress about your stuff

Start Small

Make a decision to have one area in your home that you are NOT going to allow stuff to accumulate. Several years ago I worked with a hoarder, this was his first Homework Assignment, he had to decide where he was going to designate a NO CLUTTER ZONE. He decided to have the area next to his stove, which was an area that was not cluttered. This client made a decision long ago not to clutter that area up with stuff because of his love of cooking. If you live in a home with others, make sure they know where the ‘No Clutter Zone’ is located.

The Simple Answer

Why does one spot accumulate ‘stuff’ while another doesn’t? There are 3 answers.

  • You allow it
  • You make the decision
  • You make a conscious decision

Just like my former client, he made a conscious decision to not allow his ‘stuff’ to flow into a place where he loved to create. Realize when you make ‘That Decision’ your stuff will have to go somewhere. Spend some time creating some easy, natural-to-use systems to place your stuff or get rid of it – if everything has its own place your home or office will flow more efficiently and effectively.
