There’s a surprising culprit behind the exhaustion we all feel from time to time: our stuff. I think we can all agree that everyone is, to some degree, time-starved and energy-poor. As a professional organizer and efficiency expert, I’m here to tell you that a clear home can help balance both of these deficits. Owning less and keeping what you have tidy allows you to quickly recall where things are located so you can spend less time searching and more time living. It is nearly impossible to rid ourselves of the mental noise that bogs down our daily routine unless we cut out the extra physical stuff that gets in our way.
With spring right around the corner, we couldn’t think of a better time to get started (although any time is a good time to start making transformations!). When tackling an organizational project, from your overflowing coat closet to your monster of a junk drawer, we encourage you to start small and keep these memorable mantras on repeat.
