Clutter Spaces

Clutter Spaces

* Let’s declutter this holiday season! Join in on my Clutter Spaces series, where I’ll clean up a junk drawer right alongside you! *
   Do you have clutter spaces? Junk Drawers? Corners where all the stuff you don’t use piles up? Maybe the guest room closet is full of things you don’t need every day? You probably always have the good intention of organizing it one day, but that day never comes. Until you need a pair of scissors. 
     Now, I’m not going to tell you how to live your life. Or how to organize your junk drawers. But, I think I can help you get the motivation to organize it. You just have to change your mindset. You have to realize that this drawer, corner, or closet is a mess, and your life would be so much easier if it was clean! 
     To change you mindset, you need to take it one step at a time. If that one step is thinking about your junk drawer to get the motivation to organize it, so be it. Now, if you’re on that one step for a month, it might be time to move on. One great tip I learned from listening to Lisa Woodruff’s podcasts (you can visit her at or listen to her podcasts here) is to IDLE. Now, that does not mean to think about your junk drawer for a month. It means to Identify, Decide, Locate/Let go, and Evaluate. She originally meant it to be used for items like phone books, books, and other things like that, but I think we can put a little spin on it and make it work for an entire clutter space. 
     This week, we’re going to Identify. Just find your clutter spaces. I’ll be looking right along with you. I’ve got a few in mind already. Check back here next Wednesday when I’ll be sharing my clutter spaces and we’ll move on to the next step: Decide.
