Are you a Pack Rat who saves everything because somebody might need it someday? And, now, you're overwhelmed with too much stuff? Or, are you a victim of the "Clutter Shuffle," moving your clutter from here to there, but never really getting rid of it?
In my session, "Got Clutter," at the 2012 Ag Media Summit, I assured attendees that clutter doesn't come from being lazy, unorganized or messy. Rather, that clutter stems from several habits.
To help you break from those habits, here are a few simple and energizing tips:
Stop saving all those goofy things that you never need or use
Stop bringing goofy things into your life that you never need or use
Find places to put your stuff
Stop setting things down and not putting them where they belong
Cultivate new habits to keep clutter from returning
Once you've eliminated unneeded and unused stuff, and set boundaries on what you allow to come into your home or work space, you will be delighted by how much easier it is to find places for your stuff (and how much easier it is to find what you want when you want it).
