WHY Clutter is Not
Good For You
Energy or chi naturally flows around your home and when it encounters clutter
it slows down and gets stuck. Stuck energy from clutter can cause you to
feel like you are in limbo or stuck. Not moving forward in life. It's hard
to get motivated to clear you clutter with all that stuck energy. If the
energy is really stuck, you can become depressed. And of course looking at
all your clutter can make you depressed.
HOW To Clear Your Clutter
CHANGE BEGINS WITH ME - If you want any kind of change in
your life, you have to take the first step. Make a sign that reads "Change
Begins With Me" and put it where you'll see it every day.
BUDDY UP -
Choose someone to be your clutter buddy. You'll help support them and
they'll do the same for you.
MAKE A DATE WITH YOUR CLUTTER - The clutter
you have didn’t accumulate in one day. It’s not going to go away
in one day either. Think of it this way. The pizza disappears
one slice at a time. Your clutter is going to disappear the same way.
Set aside some time each week for small clutter projects. Be reasonable
with yourself about just how much you can accomplish. Give yourself a set
amount of time to accomplish it.
START SMALL -A big room might be too overwhelming
so start with something small, like a drawer. Take it easy and do one
thing, finish it, and then do another small thing.
ORGANIZE - Divide the big project of
clearing clutter into smaller, more manageable clutter projects. Make a TO
DO list and check off each thing you finish. Have separate
bags or boxes for (1) charity donations, (2) borrowed items (3) garbage/recycling
ON SOMETHING? If you get stuck it might be helpful to ask yourself
these questions about the item. Does this lift my spirits or lower my spirits?
Does this remind me of something positive or something negative? Do I really
love this or is is just clutter? Is this really useful? Would I be proud
to show this to people who visit? Why do I own this? Am I keeping this
out of guilt? It might be helpful to make another sign that reads "My
Old Clutter Is Going To Change Someone's Life" and place that sign on
the stuff you are having a hard time letting go of.
REWARD - Make sure to reward yourself
with something when you finish your clutter projects.
Needs Your Clutter
You probably stood in line with her at the supermarket and didn’t have a
clue. That’s because when he beat her, he hit her where her clothing
would cover the bruises and hide the evidence. After years of abuse,
she finally found a safe way to escape. She and the kids are staying
in a battered women’s shelter in an undisclosed location ready to start a
new life. They need your clutter.

and got married right after graduation and started a family. Then one rainy
night on his way home from work he lost control of his truck and was killed.
In an instant she became a single mom with no education or job skills to support
her family. She and the children are destitute. Mom needs job
skills to get off of welfare and become independent and self-sufficient.
This family needs your clutter too.
The tornado blew down their
street and ripped the toddler from the arms of his mother. They found
him alive a few hundred yards away with just a few scratches and nicknamed
him “Tumbleweed”. Tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and fires
happen. Your clutter will help fund relief programs and make it possible for
disaster survivors to have temporary shelter, a warm meal, and a helping hand
when their world has been turned upside down.
