Time

Time

Clutter drains you of your time. If you live in a cluttered place, you will spend extra time looking for lost items: keys, money, shoes, tools, etc. 

And even when you’re looking right at the lost item, it becomes difficult to see when surrounded by clutter.

Money

  • When you don’t have financial papers organized, bills can get lost, causing you to accrue fees for being late with the payments.
  • Replacing lost items and buying duplicates of those we didn’t realize we already had can carry a cost that adds up quickly.

Stress

Examples of stress clutter can cause:

  • Having guests over becomes an embarrassment or an event that takes all-day preparation.
  • Each room carries visual reminders of all the work that needs to be done in the way of cleaning.
  • According to the principles of feng shui, clutter drains you of your positive energy.

A Realistic Level of Clutter

A Realistic Level of Clutter

Guidelines to follow to help you decide where you should draw the line on clutter:

  • Company. Do you like to have your home neat enough to have drop-in company? 
  • Organization. Is your home organized enough that you can generally find everything you’re looking for without having to search?
  • Stress level. Can you truly relax in your home or is it an energy drain?

Cull the Clutter

  • Go in every room and divide your things into four boxes: things to donate, things to throw away, things to keep, and things to store. If you don’t need it or love it, consider getting rid of it.
  • Go through your box of things to keep and find a place for everything. 
  • Finish one room before moving on to the next.

Keeping your home organized:

Keeping your home organized:

  • If a job takes around 30 seconds or less to do, do it immediately: put away your shoes or sort your mail.
  • Watch your ‘hot spots’. Clutter tends to accumulate in the same places: the front door, the kitchen table.
  • When you take something out, you should simply put it back.
  • Stop receiving junk mail: to cut down on paper clutter is to get rid of the junk before it comes in.
  • Put on some music and take 15 minutes a day, to clean.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
