4 Steps to De-Cluttering and Organizing

NJ Organizing Expert, Marilyn Shain Labendz can free up space in your home.

Are you disorganized? Does it bother you to an extreme?

Have you ever thought that your brain can't handle one more thing to think about? Not one teeny thing? We all do.

When it happens to me I feel as if there is not one speck of space in my gray matter to deal with anything. That's where de-Cluttering and organizing comes into play.

Our living spaces often affect us in the same way. When that one last item is added to the pile we are overwhelmed and feel as if we are going to burst.

THIS is why de-cluttering is so helpful:

  • I know it sounds crazy, but even cleaning out one desk drawer can be a mind numbing activity that distracts you from a particular stress or general tension. Moving about and not thinking of anything specific are a great combination to make room in those brain cells.

  • The simple act of filling a bag with extra or useless items is a form of purging, making room, getting some breathing space.

  • Because you've done something that you have been putting off you gain a sense of control, and a sense of accomplishment. This diminishes stress as well, even if only a little bit and you feel good about yourself.

  • You may even get inspired to do a little more than one small space because you've enjoyed clearing out, and you may even feel refreshed. (A close friend of mine decided to do one room and ended up dedicating whatever time she could to do more and more. She's still grinning at how free she feels).

Marilyn Shain Labendz is a DeCluttering and Organizing expert in Northern NJ.
