Just two or three years in one place and the clutter starts taking over.
I've moved house five times in 12 years and it's incredible how much stuff can be accumulated in just a few short years. Of course, a certain amount of clutter turns a house into a home, and unless you are a strict minimalist - in which case you're probably not looking at this page anyway - you will undoubtedly attract 'things' into your home.
The problem is when it becomes overwhelming, untidy and eventually chaotic. I lived in a van for a few years and believe me, in a limited space, you have no choice but to keep organised - especially when you have kids to feed and clear up after.
It has been shown that a tidy environment can help you focus, apply yourself to otherwise seemingly impossible tasks, and generally enjoy your space and feel good!
Don't let the clutter overwhelm you. This step-by-step guide to de-cluttering your home is simple to follow and will help you create the home you know you deserve. :-)
