Cleaning the clutter and your mind!

Take a look around your home, wither it be an apartment, condo, RV, trailer or house, how clutter is it? Now think about how many items you use that’s in your home, its not that many right? So why do we hold on to these useless items? Why do we have boxes or drawers full of “junk” that we may or may not need? 

Well I’m here to tell you that it’s time we get rid of that clutter! The clean space will allow you to have room to grow, for your mind to reset. The junk that’s living in your home is negativity that’s also living in you, your mind and body. Once you rid your home of that then you will become a little more free and a sense of calm too. 

I know it sound a little odd, items can cause negativity? That’s completely possible if you think about how you feel when your kitchen or bedroom is a mess vs when its clean and organized, completely different feelings right? 

A question you always ask yourself is: where do I start? I start in the room I spend the most time and now that’s going to change on a weekly or biweekly basis. Right now it’s my bedroom and I’m gonna start by looking around and seeing the messiest area and just go! Start by getting rid of clear garbage, tissues wrappers old pens, if’s garbage throw it out. 

Ask yourself in this order: 

What it is? 

When was it used last? Over a year? You might not need it! Less than a year its safe to keep.

Then Does it work properly? If no, Can I recycle it into something useful? No? Then toss it! If yes to either of those questions then keep it or up cycle it! If it’s wasting space its got to be tossed but if its being used then it should be kept because there no reason to rebuy something.

If it’s something you are really unsure about then you should make a pile for it to revisit when you get done with the room. 

Continue this to this in each part of the room and soon you will have a or of things to get rid of and more of your space back too! While you say yay or ney to these items keep like things together. Example; create a changing station with all of the plugs you need for your devices and keep it in one area and you’ll never search for a plug again! 

Closets are the easiest to me to organize, its important as they usually get messy fast if you have multiply members in your home! Use small bins to help keep like items together. Example I have a bin with extra first-aid items next to our first-aid kit for easy access and replenishment.

Kitchen cabinet organization will make your snack choosing easier too! Organize your kitchen cabinets with bins as well but you don’t always have to splurge on a set of tupperware! You can use ones you already have in your closet for food storage! The little tiny containers that you seem to never want to put leftovers in because it would only hold a bite size? Use these items to organize snacks like granola bars or fruit snacks. This will eliminate the big bulky box the items come in and also put to use the unwanted and unused containers so they wont get messy and fall out on you when you grab your mostly used ones!

Don’t over stress yourself by doing it all in one day! Cleaning and organizing is not a one day job so don’t get discouraged if you cannot do it all in one afternoon or feel overwhelmed by doing multiple cabinets and closets! Before you grab a snack take care of the cabinet then the next day do another one! One by one you’ll be able to organize and enjoy more of your space without feeling too overwhelmed and the end results will be so nice to look at but also you’ll feel less stressed from the clutter!

Some of the storage contains I have:
Air tight storage set: This set is $69.97 and comes with 6 of each size, lids and also the stickers which are dry erase to mark the containers! It also includes the measuring spoons!

Garlic, onion and potato holders: This set is $56.99 and is the perfect holder for your potato’s onions and garlic! We cook often so its a staple to have these items on hand but we might as well make it look cute!

The black wire baskets I have hanging by Command Hooks are from Targets Dollar Spot so they cannot be linked but were only $5!
