Wednesday, March 5th, 2014 Focus: I choose to get rid of clutter thus freeing up my time and energy.

Beatiful
If you were on a sinking ship, what is the first thing you would do? You’d probably get rid of the extra weight. It’s amazing how many of us are living in “sinking ships,” lives that require too much of our energy and don’t give us enough in return. Clutter is making us crazy, and not just because we can’t find anything — because every bit of wood, metal, and plastic we collect is an anchor tying us to something, somebody, somewhere.

So why can’t we let it go? Doesn’t having fewer, more cherished belongings that really inspire you sound a whole lot better than just coping with the side effects of living with so much extra stuff? This false sense of abundance isn’t buoying us up — it’s sinking us.

Getting rid of clutter would eliminate 40 percent of housework in the average home. One out of eleven families in the United States rents a space to store their extra junk, wasting about $1,000 a year in the process. All that junk is costing us valuable time and money, not to mention a heap of unnecessary emotional attachments.
