We all know there are only so many hours in the day. How many of them do you want to spend…
- …looking for things you need but can’t find among your excess stuff.
- …looking for things you didn’t put away where they belong.
- …choosing what to use or wear among an overabundance of stuff.
- …moving things in order to clean your home.
- …running around like a mad thing cleaning up every time someone is coming to your home for a brief or long visit.
- …dusting trinkets that aren’t even really that special to you.
- …struggling to make things fit into, what ought to be, your more than adequate size home.
- …shopping for more stuff that you will have to cram in somewhere just for the thrill of having something new.
- …feeling ashamed of how your home looks.
- …procrastinating about doing something about it.
What could you spend your precious time doing instead?
- Feeling less stressed.
- Spending time with friends and loved ones.
- Creating beautiful things.
- Living in the knowledge that anyone could drop in anytime and your home will be tidy and inviting.
- Enjoy some time in nature, a walk by the beach, hiking or watching your garden grow.
- Volunteering in your community, This can be very satisfying.
- Having extra time to focus intently on one task at a time so you get the best result
- Getting your home in order so you can feel content there.
It may take a little time to get from list A to List B but it will be totally worth it.
