Simple Home Hack
to Make Room for What You Love
Everyone at some time or another secretly wants to simplify their home and life, but knowing where to start can be daunting!
Even after cleaning, giving away, pitching, selling and donating…I still feel as if I could do more to eliminate what is distracting me from only having what I truly love.
Having a simple method to increase my productivity or efficiency at home and in life…NOW you’ve got my attention!
Here’s my simple home hack I’m using in the month of June!
I’ve decided to take just one day each week, for a month,
look around my home and find items that
- just don’t fit into my new goal for a “simple, cozy, nurturing” feel
- remind me of a time I’d rather forget
- take up room, never use (or don’t love or like!)
- I seem to move from place to place, but never seems to look right
- I keep in my closet but never wear or simply doesn’t fit anymore
- is stuck in a closet or in storage, when it could be organized where you can actually use it
- …and well, you get the idea!
So, here’s 3 Steps to the Simple Home Hack
to Make Room for What You Love!
STEP 1 – Set aside 1 hour, one day a week (you choose) remove 10 items that is distracting, don’t love it, can’t or won’t wear it or another reason…
STEP 2 – Decide to put it in the donate, sell, give to a friend, trash pile OR put it where you WILL use it
STEP 3 – Each week, you will have 10 items that will leave your home and open up space to spread out or replace with something that truly nurtures you
At the end of the month, you will have removed 40 items and may have given another person the chance to love it or get some use out of it!
This is just the beginning to remove items that distract you from the things you REALLY LOVE!
Don’t think too deeply into it.
Once you start, move swiftly, you will need momentum, or you will talk yourself out of it! lol You and I both know it’s true! LOL
So, on your chosen “hack day”,
set the timer for an hour and as my hubby says,
“get to it and do it”!
QUESTIONS YOU COULD ASK YOURSELF:
Q. Do I REALLY love it?
Q. When was the last time I wore it?
Q. Am I holding onto this for someone else?
Q. Does this contribute to my new home decor plan?
Q. Can I re-purpose it?
Q. Why, in the world do I keep this? (Give yourself one good reason), or please, “for the love of all that can be simple if you try”….”let it go”!
I hope I’ve given you some inspiration to start opening space in your home.
Life tends to fill up with so many things and before you know it, you feel clogged, cluttered or weighed down.
