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.
