A lot of clutter in your home could be a sign of many different things. Maybe you’ve got a lot of valuable stuff and you don’t want to give it away. Maybe you like to buy many things at once and then never use them. Maybe you just find it hard to let go.
Now’s your chance to work out why there’s so much clutter in your home, and begin again with a new, tidy, and uncluttered space to live out of! Let’s go through some of the main reasons behind why your rooms are so messy with a little more in-depth explanation below.
People can get very sentimental about the things they’ve bought over their lifetime. Maybe it’s something you have a lot of good memories with, or maybe it was given to you by someone you really love, or maybe it’s an old school report and you’d feel guilty if you threw it away and couldn’t show it to your kids one day!
If you’re holding onto items you haven’t used in years, or you still have items from a significant period in your life (such as a wedding or a trip you took with friends), it might be time to let go. They’re sentimental, so this will be hard, but if you pick three items you really want to keep, and donate or recycle the rest, you’ll still have a part of that time of your life with you.
You’re a Bulk Buyer
Bulk buying is a useful thing to do; it saves money and makes sure you get the things you really want when they’re available. However, it can work against you – bulk buying can get out of hand, and you end up with more items than you’ll ever need to use in your life.
It’s time to learn how to properly stock up, as when you bulk buy, most of what you buy can actually go to waste and just sit there. Know what you’ll need in an emergency, and be cutthroat with everything else.
You Don’t Trust it to Be Safe Anywhere Else!
And finally, maybe the reason you don’t want to get rid of anything is simply because you don’t trust it to be stored safely elsewhere. Maybe you inherited a lot of furniture or fine china from your grandmother, and ever since, it’s been blocking up the garage or the attic.
However, there are plenty of safe and secure storage solutions out there these days. Storage containers that are climate controlled, with plenty of packaging and seuring material, to ensure your most prized (and space taking) possessions are kept safe and sound until you need them again. So be sure to look into some such solutions within your area – they might even be able to look after your items better than your home could!
Clutter can be found in every home, but if your home is a real mess, it’s time to find out why.
