How to keep your home tidy
Do you keep your home tidy?
I leave piles of books and letter and bits of paper all around my home. My bedside table often groans with the weight of the books I have piled on top of it.
My husband banned me from having a beautiful coffee table in the lounge because I kept filling it with stuff and he kept knocking it off.
My desk has cold coffee cups on mail, blutack, money a broken watch, cheque books, broken biros, a cotton reel, 3 diaries and a shower cap. It is a very small desk. Oh I am such a clutterbug.
As we have been having a home makeover I have tried very hard to be more decisive because it is indeed lack of decisiveness that cause things such as shower caps to reside on my desk. Where to put it you see. no drawer space in the bathroom. Certainly of no use on my desk.
In the past I would just keep buying more storage and filling it up again when things got in a mess. But I am trying to spend less money and have less stuff too.
Keep on, keeping on
The key is to keep decluttering. To make decisive decisions about where things go and place them there even if this does mean getting rid. When junk mail comes through the door after a quick glance I should pop it in the recycling but I never do, it sits amidst mail for weeks. Time for a change!
Once I have cracked this then maybe I can have a coffee table back and have just a cup of coffee and a lovely book on it rather than 101 bits and bobs that just annoy my other half!
Are you a clutterer?
