Reasons to Start Your Decluttering Journey Now

Simply + Fiercely

Are you looking for reasons to declutter your home?  Having a strong ‘why’ can help you follow through with your decluttering plans, but most people focus on the obvious benefits.

Yes, less clutter leads to less stuff to clean, and who doesn’t want more of that in their lives?

But after a decade-long journey towards minimalism and simple living, I can tell you it’s so much more than having a less messy home. Decluttering has fundamentally changed my life, and without a doubt, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.

Decluttering was, in many ways, a love letter to myself. As my stuff went out the door, I stepped into acceptance, learning that I didn’t have to dress in the coolest, trendiest clothes to fit in.

Decluttering can be a form of healing or self-care

I could finally sit and think about what I wanted from life. Without the stress of clutter, I could make plans and experiment.

Decluttering creates room for the unexpected

A clutter-free home is powerful because it closes the loop. Sure, you might knit that sweater one day, but wouldn’t it feel good to take the idea off your plate?

Decluttering reduces your mental load

I’ve noticed that often, the most incredible feeling of freedom is one less decision to make. If you want to pick up the project, you will find a way—and in the meantime, give yourself the gift of one less thing to think about.

If you learn from your clutter, you’ll make better purchases in the future, effectively stopping it from the roots.  This can save you hundreds, if not thousands, in the long run.
