How many nick knacks do you have in your home? Take a look around now? How many extra bits and pieces do you have which clutter up your mantel piece?
If you have the space to have a full ‘arty’ style home with photos, prints, artwork, ornaments, vases, flowers, and everything else in between, then there is no problem. But it’s all about the space. If you have a smaller home, having lots of unnecessary clutter in the form of ornaments etc, will just make you feel overwhelmed.
Here are my tips for decluttering
- Put all photos in frames, only have a few photos out that bring the biggest smile to your face
- Clear anyway any feathers, stones etc. If you wish to keep them, collect them in a nice box with a ribbon and reflect on them from time to time.
- Less is more. For instance, if you like candles, 3 is a good amount (in fact, always do everything by odd numbers). Make sure they still have a wick.
- Make sure everything stands in its own space. That way you can see it clearly. For instance, if you had a garden where every plant had grown over each other how could you see the beauty of each individual plant?
