In times of stress, it can be hard to keep track of small chores and clutter can quickly become overwhelming. As we’ve continued to stay inside due to COVID-19, our homes have become a bigger and bigger part of our world. It’s never been more important to keep our spaces clear and free of clutter so that they can continue to be our sanctuaries in this time, but it’s also never been more difficult to remain focused on everyday upkeep. If you’ve ever lost control of a craft cabinet or junk drawer, you know how daunting it can be to clear it out.
Fortunately, staying organized doesn’t have to be hard. With a few simple changes, clear surfaces and decluttered cabinets can be an everyday luxury, allowing you to feel free, clear, and comfortable at home. You’d be amazed at the difference a clutter-free home can make; instead of feeling scattered or overwhelmed, we can feel grounded in intentionality and clarity and have the freedom to focus on making every day the best it can be. Our homes should be places for peace and a few small steps can help keep them that way.
