We are in the midst of Spring and it’s my favorite time to dig deep into my house and purge things that are not needed. I think it’s extremely refreshing to look at everything you have and think “Do I REALLY need this in my life or is it taking up unnecessary space?”. I go off of a few tips for myself each year to help realize what’s needed and what’s just wanted.
1. When it comes to the living area/kitchen spaces: Limit the knickknacks. While they’re fun, cute, and everything in between, they’re clutter. I keep my large furniture but as seasons pass and I add one too many candles, frames, and drink coasters… It can get overwhelming. I take everything off and let myself have three items on whatever furniture there is. Everything else goes in a box for storage or donated.
3. On top of purging items, I give my home a really good clean. Something about turning on some music and scrubbing at every inch is actually pretty soothing to me. Plus, the end result makes it all worth it. A clean, organized home helps clear your mind after a long day!
Those are just a few of many tips but I challenge you to pick one day this month of April to do a whole home/life detox. You’ll be amazed at what it does for you!
