What is the impact of clutter?
I work with people to combat the war on clutter, through workshops, talks and working with people one on one – I help people de-clutter their homes and get organized.
More importantly I also help people look at why they have clutter in the first place.
Why is this important? Because I can teach and help people de-clutter and organise their rooms, but unless they understand why their homes have become like this and learn how to stop it – the likelihood is, it will happen again.
If you have an issue you with clutter, think about your mindset and why you feel the need to bring and keep so much in your home.
I watched this video a couple of years ago and it’s another very good reason to stop bringing so much into our homes.
The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It’ll teach you something, it’ll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
Not only does clutter stop us enjoying our time at home, clutter up our mind but it also effects the environment. So next time you go to buy something, consider whether you really need it and what is the impact on you, your home and the environment.
If you are de-cluttering, here are some environmentally friendly options for those reusable unwanted or unneeded items you find:
- Sell the items on Gumtree or eBay
- Give items away through Freecycle
- Give items to your local charity
