Professional Organizing Tips and Resources.
How do I know what my clients are experiencing?
Well, I too have accumulated 'stuff' and occasionally its needs to be purged.
Here's me, practicing what I preach...
Last Monday was one of those days when I too had to spend some time organizing my belongings, re-live some past memories and let go of some 'stuff'!
We have a small storage unit close by in which we store our valuable and not so valuable possessions that just don’t fit in our home. For the most part these items are not up for disposal due to their valuable and highly useful nature. (For example: our 4 large containers of camping and sporting gear)
Lately however, we have been contemplating thinning out much of the household items and other less loved stuff we know has been taking up space. So we decided to practice what we preach: ‘Have nothing which you don't know to be useful, think to be beautiful, or love.’
We managed to gather up 6 large boxes of stuff to give away. I was actually surprised at the amount and was excited to make that kind of a dent in our storage space. We now have more room and much better access to what we use most often.
One particularly liberating experience was tossing out a pile of old records I had created when I was producing a business plan for a health food internet café. Wow, what a trip to go through those old documents and ideas! Yet, I don’t regret tossing it because really, I have most documents backed up in electronic format anyhow.
I understand my client's situations and feelings when dealing with clutter and letting go. Like myself, I know they too can feel refreshed when ‘space’ is cleared and the 'unneeded' and 'unwanted' are released. So, where is your clutter?
