Unmotivated? Need To Declutter?

Try these 4 motivating tricks:

Vision: Get excited! Create a vision for your space.

  • Go crazy on Pintrest. Find images of organised spaces to inspire you.
  • Save your favourite image to your phone wallpaper or make a vision board.
  • Label it! – Mum’s Study on the spare (junk) room door.

Goals: Give yourself a feeling of purpose!

  • Set goals for your space with realistic time frames. Put them in your calendar or diary.
  • Write down your goals. Be specific about which space and why it’s important to you.
  • Break it down. Schedule little chunks of time or choose small areas to declutter.

Support: Give yourself a feeling of determination!

  • Just like an exercise buddy, a decluttering buddy makes things more fun.
  • Tell EVERYONE what you’re trying to do AND why AND the timeframe.
  • Enlist help from positive, supportive people in your life.

Know yourself: What do you need to do to make sure you follow through?

  • Schedule an Op Shop drop off in your calendar?
  • Put the donation box in a really annoying place so you’ll take it away.
  • Perhaps you’d prefer to do a declutter binge over a long weekend?

Careful, or you’ll get addicted to decluttering!
