I’ve asked a few people, “Why do you want to declutter your home?” “I hate feeling overwhelmed by all this stuff,” is the common response. I need to get better at asking follow-up questions; so, I’ll send them out to you here.
We realize we are not our stuff and that clutter isn’t about the stuff but about our expectations for our lives. So, what do you want from your life?
If you look at your stuff (or think about areas where you’ve decluttered), what does it say about your expectations for your time? Is there exercise equipment, hobby supplies, books, clothing, and other things here and there in your home that suggest you live a life very different from the way you actually spend your days?
So, why do you want to declutter your home? How will your home reflect the life you want to lead? If you enjoy thinking things through before starting a project, Clear Your Clutter and Create Space for Your Life provides journaling questions and worksheets that help you clarify your goals and your actions for decluttering your home.
