What is Your Clutter Costing You?

by | Mar 11, 2022 | Counseling

When we think about the cost of clutter, we often think about how much we have spent on the things around us that we no longer want or need.

But I would encourage you to consider the bigger costs.

  • The cost to your peace of mind and calm:

When your home is cluttered, it’s not unusual to feel weighed down with a sense of dread when it’s time to get out of bed in the morning. You may secretly wish you could take a match to everything and start again.

  • The cost in the time, effort, and stress:

Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle, you move things around, but it really doesn’t improve the situation because everything doesn’t have a home.  Many times, you end up worse off than when you first began. You may wonder why you even bother.

  • The cost to your spiritual life:

All the clutter distracts you from spending time with Our Lord on a regular basis.  You may wonder if Jesus would have said His yoke was easy and His burden was light, if he had to take care of your home.

Believe me when I tell you that you are not alone and there is nothing to feel embarrassed about.

Here are a few tips for getting started:

•              Pick an area you want to work on

•              Keep the area as small as possible as it will enable you to see the results better

•              Set your timer for 15 minutes and work on decluttering that small area

•              When you are done, celebrate your win! Celebrate what you want to replicate.

•              Take a rest!!!

•              Repeat tomorrow

I’ve helped many women just like you discover the peace, balance, and ease that comes from clearing the clutter once and for all using just small snippets of time.

There’s no reason to suffer any more. Reach out and let’s walk arm in arm to freedom.
