Stop Clutter Before It Comes In Your Home

Stop Clutter Before It Comes In Your Home


What happens when you love to shop but hate to organize? Have you ever faced that dreadful feeling when you don’t have the time or energy to deal with what you buy?

All those “great deals” become clutter when we bring the pieces into our homes and don’t have a place to put them away. What usually happens is the new items stay hidden in a bag, and we continue to let it pile up!

When you have too much stuff with no place to put it, it leads to clutter and chaos. This does not allow you to enjoy the stress-free, organized home you deserve.

Before you buy something, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I have a place for it?
  • Do I love it?
  • Am I willing to toss something else to make room for this item?
  • Will I actually use this item, and if so, will it be within the next two months?

Remember this; even if a deal is too good to pass up, you’ll still need to find a place for that item in your home. The floor does not count as designated storage space unless it’s furniture. Don’t let your bags pile up on the floor!

After asking yourself these questions, over time you’ll learn that the best way to stop clutter is to prevent it from entering your home.
