The change of seasons always inspires me to declutter in hopes of having some sort of a new start and a less stressful life. Clutter always makes me feel like I have things to do so I don’t feel as though I can just relax.
If only decluttering was as simple as putting everything away. But discernment of your personality in regard to your clutter quotient is important, too. For me, I feel my life is sterile if I don’t have some clutter, so that complicates the process for me. I am sure you have your personality glitches that interfere, too.
With all of this in mind I decided to aggregate a number of Care2 clutter articles that have been popular over the years. There is something in here for everyone. Here is to change and freedom from clutter!
