Each of us has a different reason for why we keep clutter. Here are some of the possible ones:
- “Just in case”
- Status symbol
- Inherited “clutteritis”
- A belief that more is better
- Using clutter to suppress emotions
Do any of these sound like reasons you have clutter? You may even have other reasons for keeping clutter around you.
Sometimes we may even use clutter as an excuse.
So acknowledge the reasons for your clutter and start asking these two simple questions:
- Where would I be without clutter in my life?
- What would I be doing if clutter didn’t obstruct me?
