Today I was thinking about all the “before” shots of the rooms we’ll be making over for the 30-Day June Room Challenge. What struck me was that nearly everyone’s space was cluttered, my laundry room included.
I started thinking about where clutter comes from. I mean, I know it’s stuff that just piles up, but why?
Most importantly, how do we prevent it from coming back?
It’s easy (well, not that easy) to clear the clutter, like as part of this challenge, but how can we be certain that it won’t come back again 6 months from now?
Peter Walsh, Mr. Organizational Guru, shared this article on Facebook recently called The 4 Biggest Clutter Culprits in Your Home (And What to Do About It). You should read the article!
First, he talks about how to deal with clutter, and how you should write down the vision you have for a room. How do you want to feel when you walk into that room?
Reminds me of this chart I put together a couple years ago:
June 1st (today!) is the official kick-off of the 30-Day June Room Challenge. As we begin our room makeovers (whether you officially signed up or not), think about these questions and come up with answers that can help direct you.
