Setting Goals when Clear the Clutter

Ah, clutter…we all love our stuff, don’t we? However, too much clutter weighs you down psychologically and even slows you down physically. For this reason, setting goals for decluttering will give you a clear vision and help you overcome common obstacles to create a clutter-free environment for you and your family.

Especially now, when we’re spending a lot more time at home than we’re used to, having a clutter-free (or at least managed) living space is essential. There are tons of projects that need doing, work, and schooling to squeeze in, and we still have the same amount of space.

Whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist, you’re probably attached to some things that you need to let go of.

Benefits of Setting Goals for Decluttering

Sometimes clutter becomes such an established part of our living space that we stop noticing it. However, it’s still there nagging at us in our mental peripheral. Also, you’ll be surprised at how mentally freeing it is to have a clutter-free space.

set goals to declutter
  1. When your kitchen is clean and clutter-free, you’ll enjoy cooking instead of dreading it.
  2. If your bedroom is tidy, it will be an oasis for rest.
  3. Work in a home office? You’ll be much more productive if your office is clutter-free.
  4. If the playroom or kiddo’s bedroom is cleared of toys they no longer play with, they’ll enjoy their rooms more and play more creatively.
  5. Finally, when your family room or living room is clutter-free, it’s a place for creating memories and enjoying your family.

When you declutter, you’re freeing up your mind, personal space, and psyche to live a more rewarding life.

Cleanliness and Decluttering

Here’s a fact: you can’t effectively clean your home if it’s cluttered. If you try to clean, it will take you twice as long to clean as it should.

Furthermore, if you’re trying to clean a cluttered room, you’ll end up either spending your time decluttering instead of cleaning or moving piles of clutter to clean underneath them.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed and wondering if you should clean or declutter, make up your mind to invest some time into decluttering before you tackle the deep cleaning. You’ll be glad you did.

But wait! Don’t just jump into your decluttering project immediately. With a little planning, prep work, and setting goals, you’re much more likely to be successful in your clutter-free venture.
