20 minutes is often enough time to tackle mini projects.
Stop putting things on the ‘later’ pile or that never ending ‘to do list’. Action them as they come to hand and stop double handling.
To maintain the balance of content, if you gain an item you must throw out an item. E.g. new towels in, old towels out.
Tidying up or as we refer to it ‘shuffling’, is very different from organising. Tidying is simply the act of moving items from one place to another to make your home look tidy. This method is counterproductive to decluttering.
Establish a purposeful home by creating zones for each item. Consider where each item needs to be housed based on where it needs to function. (before that, ask yourself if you even need it).
We don’t always have the time to complete an entire room or space. Break down projects into smaller tasks and chip away at it. Working on one category of item at a time, can also help you remained focused on the end goal. The clutter and disorganisation didn’t happen overnight, so you need to take a gradual approach to remedy it.
