Your home can be hectic. You may accumulate mess and belongings can be harder to handle, especially if you have a busy life or do not regularly declutter your home. It may even get to the point where there is so much mess that you don’t know where to start or put it all.
What is clutter?
Clutter can range from files to furniture. It is anything that you are keeping around your house that doesn’t add any value to your life. Decluttering will solve this, because it is all about making more room for the things that matter in your home.
When can clutter be a problem?
Clutter becomes a problem when it can’t be controlled. For a lot of people, clutter can be exhausting to look through and takes energy out of you when you are searching for something. It can waste inordinate amounts of time when you are looking for things that you can’t find. In more extreme cases, people may suffer from an illness such as obesity or depression and life of consumption extends beyond ‘stuff’. In situations with hoarders, a home full of clutter can cause complications such as fire hazards, tripping hazards and other health and safety problems, especially when mold and dust are present from neglected organisation. However, extreme cases are not very common and many people experience problems with clutter but do not develop an attachment to their mess.
Why you should declutter your home
There are many people who enjoy decluttering and organising because it relieves stress by giving the person a sense of control and accomplishment. It is also something to do when there is nothing else to do. For other people, getting rid of old junk makes a little extra space in their home that wasn’t being used in an effective way before. Some people just feel the need to purge before moving house. Whatever the reason, decluttering will always have more benefits than disadvantages. A professional home organiser can help you get through the process, so you don’t have to deal with the stress and complications on your own.
