The Art Of Tidying Up. 5 Ways Decluttering Can Change Your Life

declutter your life

Decluttering is one of those things that so many of us say we want to do, but keep putting off. However, when you do finally take on the clutter where you live (or work), and get rid of stuff you don’t need or use, it’s amazing how good you can feel.   

Getting rid of physical clutter actually helps you clear out your mental and emotional clutter as well. It’s a simple life hack that actually works and is totally worth the time and effort it takes.   

After you’ve decluttered, there’s a wonderful sense of satisfaction and calm contentment when you can look around a room and everything in it has a purpose or a place.   

Here are five simple ways decluttering can change your life for the better:

1. Reduce Stress

Decluttering your physical space helps you clear your mind and feel less stressed. With fewer projects on your never-ending To Do list, there’s less to think about and less to make you feel overwhelmed.  

2. Discover More Free Time

When you’ve got less stuff kicking around to deal with, everything becomes easier and takes less time. It’s easier to choose your clothes for work, find your car keys, and get out the door. It’s also quicker and easier to clean your house and keep it that way.  


3. Feel More Energetic

Having clutter in your personal space often represents stuff you haven’t dealt with yet. By clearing it out, you make room for new ideas and possibilities, and feel more energetic as a result.   


4. Love Where You Live

When you declutter your life, you can better appreciate the beauty of where you live. When you walk in the door, you can enjoy your special possessions, be happy in your living space, and be grateful for what you have.   


5. Keep What’s Important In Storage

Decluttering doesn’t have to mean getting rid of everything. Often you will have items you really want to keep but just don’t have enough space for them. That’s when a self-storage unit really comes in handy. It’s easy and affordable to rent a storage unit to keep what’s important to you while also keeping your home clutter-free. Storage units are also ideal for keeping bulky seasonal items such as snowblowers, lawn mowers, patio furniture, and holiday decorations tucked away until you need them.
