Aspiring to be organized in your home, office or life? Do you feel if you buy more containers, shelves, cabinets and storage units that will solve the problem?
What happens when the space just can’t hold any more stuff? That moment when not one more piece of paper can be jammed into the drawer???
This is an extremely common dilemma for those who struggle with organization. “I just need another cabinet.” “I just need to install more shelves.” Another drawer, shelf, container, cabinet or closet is not always the answer. Sometimes it is the answer, but many times NO it is not. The reality is that no matter how much space you have, if you never sort or purge through it, eventually your space will fill up and run out.
This is the time, the moment of reckoning, when the real task of needing to organize hits you. This may be an undertaking you’ve been avoiding for years. The first step is to recognize you have too much stuff whether it is paper or household items for the space that is available to house these items. You must begin to let go of the excess to be able to organize what you have.
Realize the answer is not always more organizing containers. Sometimes the cold hard truth is it’s time to “Let It Go”. The more things you can let go of the more space you will gain, keeping in mind the goal is not to fill up all the space again. Open space that allows your eye to rest as you scan the room is soothing.
Simplify your Life. Less Stuff = Less Stress and don’t we all want less stress for a calmer, more peaceful existence?
