Are you a complusive declutter?

Do you buy every type of organizer?  But after a few weeks or months, you can’t even find the organizers?

The fact is that we need a certain amount of stuff.  Stuff is fine it’s when your stuff starts to take over there becomes a problem.  Most of us have too much stuff.  Example.  How many hair products do you have?

Women:  Do you have hot rollers, a 2″ curling iron, a 1″ curling iron, a crimping iron, a flat iron or more than 1 hair dryer?  How about styling products?  gel, spray or stuff…

Guys:  How many flat screwdrivers do you have?  Do you have tools that are duplicate because you can’t find the one you need so you buy another?

Ladies:  Dishesbowls-jxlf4kyvt-a-jessica-ruscello

Guys:  Golf clubs or fishing lures 1280px-Rapala_lures

Can you not fit the car in the garage because you have too much stuff?  Are you holding onto pallets to make that amazing stuff you see on Pinterest?  How long have you been waiting to make that flag out of pallets?  Well, that’s too long.  Do it now or let them go.

Simply put, keep it simple.

You don’t have to have fancy organizers.  You just need to put everything in it’s place. If you put everything in it’s place and you have a place for everthing you will be less stressed.  Less stress  who doesn’t what that?

I’ll just say it.  You probably have too much stuff. I say this for your own good.

If you get organized you will find that you are saving time and money. Time not searching for the screw driver.  Money buy not buying new to replace what you can’t find (until later!)

What did you search for that you eventually found later?

Thanks!

  1. I went to MAC three years ago before my sons wedding and had my whole face “done.” She recommended foundation, blush, eye shadow, lip stick, liner and eyebrow stuff that would enhance my features…(not match my clothes.) I loved it all and tossed all my other stuff away. I get mascara at Walgreens and exchange it every three months. I use my make up until it’s literally gone and then replace.. Not only is my make-up drawer small and organized, when I travel it takes two seconds to scoop my stuff up & put in bag.

  2. It’s really hard to organize when you simply have too much stuff. I’m working on the decluttering part and then looking for new ways to organize in places where there’s always problems, like by the front door. But as long as there’s too much stuff, the organizers don’t work.

  3. I am certainly working on less stuff. I’m actually ok with mine and I am making noticeable progress. It’s a little tougher with my kids. I love the idea of less toys/more creativity, but at the same time, I like watching my sons play with the specific trains that all have names so I go back and forth about which toys to keep and which to toss. I’ve tried letting them in on the declutter process and giving toys to those that may need them more, etc. It’s just a constant balance between teaching them where specific toys go, and which toys need to go!!!
