Today after breakfast I took a picture of my utility room and then turned around and saw the cluttered windowsill in the kitchen and then turned around again and saw the stuff in the corner of the dining room and….. it goes on.
If you look back at my blogs over the year, you will see that clutter is one of my biggest problem areas… but in 2020 I’m going to do things differently and be much more positive about it.
Yes, I might still take photos of the whole room and think that I can tackle it in one day, but the only challenge I have set myself daily this year is to do one-small-no-more-than-10-minute-job-per-day. I can do more, but I only have to do 10 minutes. I can only hope that I stick to it, but if you followed me with my other writing blog that ended in 2012, you will know that I stick to challenges that I set myself.
There must actually be an answer/method/way forward with achieving a decluttered house and I am determined to find it. Part of me worries about doing it this way as it might feel too slow and I’ll only want to carry on doing some more; however, that’s the beauty of this method, I don’t need to stop. As long as I have done one small area e.g. one shelf, one drawer, my handbag, one shelf in fridge, I will have moved forward. Some days I will have more time than others.
What area shall I pick today? Check in later for my update.
