Decluttering your home

seniors decluttering

By decluttering your home and giving away, selling or trashing any items, you are able to simplify and enjoy life more.

With that in mind, here are a few benefits that you may or may not have thought of:

  • The more you practice evaluating the value of things in your life, the less attached you become to stuff in general.
  • As you purposefully declutter your home, you’ll realise how much stuff you truly have. This will help you evaluate future purchases more carefully, which will ultimately save you money.
  • If you are more of a keeper and your spouse is not, starting the process can reduce conflict. Of course, decluttering can cause conflict if you start giving away your spouse’s things without their permission! I don’t recommend doing that!
  • You’ll spend less time dusting and cleaning.
  • You’ll have a better idea of where things are in your home and be able to find them more quickly and easily.
