There is nothing worse than coming home from a busy day at work, and find yourself having to step over things, and around things, and sometimes even on top of things, and this is all down to the clutter that’s been left. – It’s a nightmare, and can really bring you down. You see, your home is a place where you’re supposed to feel the most comfortable, and safe, and protected. It’s your nest, and if that’s disturbed, then it sets you off balance. A messy home equals a messy mind, so if all you see is junk, then your brain is going to process that and you’ll feel miserable. Whereas if the space is clean and tidy, then you’re mind is able to breathe clearly without any obstacles in its way, and that’s very important. We already have so much negativity in the world, that you don’t want to bring that into your home.
So, here’s how to keep your home clutter-free.
Keep it in storage
If you’ve got a lot of things that you aren’t willing to throw away, be it because they hold fond memories, or are valuable, or maybe they’re someone else’s things – Magenta Storage may just be the answer for you. All you need to do is reserve yourself a place online, take your things to your local center, and then keep them in storage for as long as you want. This is great because it means that you aren’t rushed to try and figure out what you need to do. You can take your time knowing that everything is safely locked away until you decide otherwise.
Now, of course, you don’t want to throw things away that could be of potential value – unless of course you don’t want the hassle and prefer to just throw it out altogether, which is understandable. But other than that, if something is still working well, or looks marvelous, then put it up for sale. There are so many different ways you can do this, be it on the internet through sites like eBay or Amazon, or even social media platforms like Facebook. Or you can go to auctions or car boot sales. And of course, word of mouth.
Throw it away
As humans, we seem to create sentimental values for things, even when they don’t require one. Of course, sometimes it’s for good reason and we can never imagine letting go of something so special, but other times, we much prefer to just keep something stored away in a box in the spare room than deal with it, because it’s easier, and we get lazy. But it’s time to sort out what you don’t need. If you know that you won’t use or wear the item or object again – throw it away. If it’s broken – throw it away. Don’t spend too much time thinking, otherwise you will end up coming up with an excuse as to why you should keep it.
