This week and next week we’ll be looking at my top five surprising myths about clutter. These myths keep you stuck with too much stuff. Read on for the first two.
Myth # 1 – You FIRST Need to Be Organized
Nope! First you need to let go of stuff that you no longer love, need or use. If you don’t keep it, you don’t need to organize it. It IS that easy.
Myth # 2 – Cute Containers Are the Answer
Nope again! There are a few stores that I just LOVE to browse in and it’s the containers, bins and baskets with their storage possibilities that are so much fun. But even I don’t randomly buy them.
First you need to know what you need. If you buy for what you have right now before you practice the advice in Myth #1, you may end up with more or less than you need, which is just plain frustrating.
And let’s face it, a bin or box can be a crutch to keep items instead of letting them go. How much unknown stuff is already packed away in boxes that will never see the light of day? Enough said.
