Being surrounded can be stressful, even when what is surrounding you is your own stuff. What a mess. You feel like you’re always cleaning up and organizing. The problem is that there is too much to begin with. You can keep reorganizing as much as you want but that stuff will not stay where you want it.
If you think it feels good to organize, I can say that it feels better to get rid of that crap you keep on having to mess with.
A great place to start is your junk drawer. Have you used anything in there in the past six months? What is that stuff? Bring the trash can right over to it and start getting rid of things from inside.
Next, move to your night stand or where ever you put things before bed. That stand might also have drawers on it full of junk you haven’t used in years.
That’s honestly a good start. Forcing yourself to really decide if you need to hang on to those chincy trinkets you’ve kept “just in case.”
You might even find something that you get to list on craigslist or eBay and make a few bucks out of it.
Start with the small and easier decisions. It will feel pretty good.
