Hello all. How are you?
These days I been reading a library book on organizing. It’s interesting and so far motivating my mind.
When I used to try and failed at cleaning my room, my concentration was on:
-There’s so much mess.
-It’s too long to clean.
-It’ll take forever!
-Where do I even begin?
These are some questions that run through my mind and exhaust it in a second.
Reading books in the past about organizing/cleaning didn’t help much. My mind wasn’t focused- too many words.
With this book, my mind stayed focused. They suggest to spend 5-15 minutes concentrating on one side of the area you plan on decluttering. After making a goal, those 5-15 minutes, you have to place each item from that area into one of the four sections: love, using, give away, throw away.
I haven’t finished the book yet. But I have spent a few minutes with makeup figuring out which ones I love, using, can give away, and throw away.
The book says if it’s something you want to use late, then ask yourself can you afford to buy it later?
My hope is that decluttering, organizing, and cleaning my room will help me spend less.
Is there anyone that needs to declutter, organize, and clean a part or the whole house? How about we challenge each other?
