Home Organization: Lies You Tell Yourself

home organizationEver wonder why you are always looking at a cluttered home and how you can declutter better? There are some lies that most of us tell ourselves that are doing us a disservice.

It’s important when you are trying to change anything in your life that you closely examine your thoughts and feelings, you might not realize it but this is especially true when it comes to home organization.

Common lies that do us harm in terms of home storage:

LIE 1: If I pare down my wardrobe I will have nothing interesting to wear.

TRUTH: By having fewer clothes you can afford to buy better items that you can use to coordinate more exciting outfits.

 

LIE 2: If I put off my home organization and decluttering I will be more motivated to get it all done at once.

TRUTH: If you leave things to the last minute when guests are coming or you just procrastinate in general you are more likely to feel overwhelmed and never get what you want accomplished.

 

LIE 3: If I throw that item out or give it away I will be sorry I did down the road.

TRUTH: The majority of the items you keep around for a rainy day are the ones you don’t really need at all. On top of that fact, if you keep everything, when you need one specific thing chances are good you won’t be able to find it.

 

LIE 4: If I throw those papers out I will lose something important.

TRUTH: These days, with the internet and many records being kept online, bank records for example, most of the papers you have laying around aren’t necessary to keep. The one exception is if you own a business. If that’s the case, talk to your accountant and/or lawyer to find out what you need and what you don’t. It’s almost certain that at least 80 percent of what you have been keeping is unnecessary.

 

LIE 5: I can’t work on home organization until I get special shelves and organization tools and I can’t afford them right now.

TRUTH: You don’t need anything like that to stay organized. Are they nice to have? Sure, but they are far from necessary. You can browse around our blog and find hundreds, no, thousands, of home organization tips you can use to keep your home decluttered and very few of them need anything special.
