Decluttering Month


What is Clutter?

Clutter is anything we don't need, we don’t want, or we don’t use.It takes our time, energy and space. It can be anything from clothes we no longer wear, old papers, broken or unused toys, or gifts we don’t like. This clutter is usually in piles on furniture, wedged into drawers, thrown in boxes, neatly stacked or packed away in storage.

Clutter seems to have a life of its own, it multiplies without any effort on our part. Clutter is overwhelming and is usually a source of pain and uncomfortableness.

Despite this pain, we are scared to throw things away. We think we might need it, we might be able to fix it, or one day we might fit into it again. We don't want to be wasteful or ungrateful.

Although we may cling to our clutter, what we really want are surroundings of beauty, order, serenity; a balanced life; and harmonious relationships.
